Rated 1 out of 5Â by justanordinaryhomeowner This is a terrible product
This is a terrible product. I think that the people in the YouTube videos demonstrating this product are like the carnival barkers that show you how easy it is to make a basket or toss a ring onto a bottle. I tried two different applications today, neither remotely worked. The first one was automotive. The second, a pinhole leak in a half inch copper pipe at the brazed elbow junction. Perfectly smooth, easily accessible copper tubing. No excuses for a poor fit.
The water under the tape blew up the tape like an aneurism. The water found various points in the tape job to squeeze out of, albeit an inch or so to the right and left of my original leak. Something is wrong with this product. The instructions, the limited set of applications where it works, etc. It doesn't work.
I'm completely disappointed that Home Depot would even carry this product. I noticed on the reviews that some reviews that liked it did not detail the conditions of their application when they praised it. To me, that indicates that they haven't even tried it yet.
In case you're wondering why my photo shows yellow, I figured I'd post on the black in order to help more people find feedback for this product which is available in multiple colors. SKU 42366 01176. I can get my money back so I'm not mad at Home Depot, but this product wasted hours of my time that I could have put toward a genuine solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 worked for me
used it to cover areas during powder coating. don't tell them they raise the price. there is no way this product or any other quick fix tape will seal copper pipe. average psi is 70. a bad pressure regulator i have seen the pressure over 200 psi. but it doesn't state it will do pressurize pipes. drain pipes yes unless backed up majorly.. wrapping up wires even outside should work great cleaning up wires under the hood, i can see several ways to use this tape

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MrBlahblah Doesn't stop leaks!
I has a small leak and was looking for a temporary repair. Bought two rolls of this tape just in case. The water line was a very low pressure line so this tape was just the ticket, WRONG!!!! This stuff sticks to itself so easily that it makes working with it nearly impossible. I wrapped the area VERY tightly and overlapped the tape quite a bit to ensure a good seal. Used an entire roll on this small leak and as soon as the water was turned back on it promptly leaked again. Complete waste of money

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Idoworkforyou Doesn't work in tight places,
Was excited to try this product I had a pipe that was broken below ground level I turned the water off chipped a few inches around the pipe away and tried this product. I could not even get it to stick to itself let alone anything else. Total waste of time and a trip to Home Depot. If anyone else has had better luck they must have had the perfect environment to use it in. In the perfect situation I would just cut and sweat a new piece in. Thank You Home Depot for allowing me to return the product with out a problem!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by KYremod Ok in a pinch...
I bought this after accidentally grazing a copper water pipe with a saw while doing some demolition work. I needed something to patch the pipe for a week before the plumbers came to re-route the piping in our bathroom to accommodate a new vanity. The first time I wrapped it, I used maybe 1/3 of the roll and proceeded to turn the water back on. Unfortunately, after about 1-2 minutes, the slow leak had built up enough pressure that it burst the tape. I shut the water off again, and proceeded to wrap the rest of the roll around the leak (to the point of looking a bit absurd). I had the water off and on over the next week, and it never leaked again. However, since I wasn't living in the home at the time, I never trusted it enough to leave the water on while I was gone. If I was in a pinch, I'd probably use it again for a small leak such as the one I had, but it is definitely not a long-term repair for a pressurized pipe.
