Q:I bought this pipe repair kit and it was a total waste of money. The leak is worse than when I started. I do think the fiberglass was too dried out. It was mfgd almost a year ago (11/24/21) and didn't seem to have resin for the full length.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Use a hacksaw to cut the wrap parallel to the pipe lengthwise along the length of the wrap. You may have to do this on the bottom and top of the pipe.

        Q:Can I apply it to a coupling that is slightly leaking and wet & will it hold?

        A:  No, it has to have water turned off and be completely dry. If your going to do all that you may as well fix the problem at the coupling, and it's less expensive to do

          Adhesive sets too quickly
          Just bought this product in the store this morning, and just finished applying it. Rather attempting to as half the roll is fused shut now. The directions say to soak in water 20 seconds to activate glue and squeeze it to force in water thoroughly. After doing this the roll was becoming too sticky to wrap around the pipe after about 25 or 30 seconds. By the 1 minute mark the roll was fused shut and had to cut off the excess. Did not seal and left a mess preventing using other products.

            Might work for some application.
            It’s not easy to work with and the entire role of sealing tape did not open up all the way. I tried to use it on existing sprinkler pipe and it didn’t work for me.

              Miracle Fix
              An outside pipe burst and had to shut off water to the house. I used both FiberFix and this product to seal both a hole in the pipe and a split in the valve, and believe this RectorSeal to be greatly superior. The tape was slightly flexible so I could work it around the valve, and it had much more resin than the other product so the seal to the pipe seems stronger.

                Every review prior to this is accurate. The product does not work. A waste of time and money.

                  Not on a tee
                  I followed directions thoroughly but the 1” pvc tee continued to leak. It probably works best on a pvc pipe or coupling, and not on a fitting with bends. I didn’t have much expectations after reading the comments. For the price of $12, it was worth trying. Next time I’ll only attempt it on easily accessible simple pvc pipes/couplings.

                    Great kit for emergency repair
                    I had a 1/2 inch copper pipe that sprung a leak through a pin hole that appeared suddenly. Hot water is pressurized by a pump prior to going through this pipe. The application of the material is straight forward but this is an isocyanate based chemical that has been impregnated through a fiberglass tape. I used very little of the supplied epoxy to first cover the hole. I then applied the tape after soaking it in water as per the supplied instructions. Isocyanates react with water to form a hard polyurea and liberate CO2 so you really have to continuously work the tape to purge the gas from it and eliminate porosity. Left it for a couple of hours to cure but it leaked a little bit when I turned the water on, so I left it overnight to harden. When I turned on the water again, the tape was as solid as it can be with no leak. Do it right and it will work.

                      I read all of the reviews on this and I'm normally scared off by so many 1 star reviews. But I had a leak and this was the only patch my local Home Depot had in stock - so I took a chance. I fully expected this to fail me based on user reviews - but I'm actually super happy with it and have no complaints at all. I had a small pinhole leak in a 3/4" copper pipe in my basement. I followed the directions closely - drained all the water out, roughed up the pipe, applied the putty, soaked the wrap, and wrapped the wrap around as many times as needed to use the entire length. I left the water turned off for about 2 hours before turning it back on. And I turned it back on slowly (I don't think this actually does anything, but figured I'd do it anyway). It's been 3 days and it's still completely dry. I'll probably replace the pipe eventually, but this was a great short term fix. Just follow the directions and be prepared to move quickly after you soak the wrap.

                        My home was built in 1922. The pipes (hot/cold water and for the baseboard heating system) are brass and getting old. As noted to me by a plumber, one problem with fixing old brass is that the vibrations on a pipe that occur during cutting for a repair can cause damage elsewhere on a line, so when I had a pinhole leak in one pipe, a plumber who was there (doing a non-leak job) said he could end up being there for a week replacing everything just to fix that one drip. So I tried this product, and it's held for 6 years now. Every few years I've had another little pinhole. It held perfectly on the second job, but I had trouble on the third--it still leaked but at at a much lower rate. A few days ago I went down to my basement and there was a big leak: water was spraying out and untold gallons had already spilled out (luckily it just flowed to the sump without doing other damage). I was going to get some more, but I figured this was a big leak and I ought to call a plumber. Turns out that's a problem on a Friday night the week before the holidays: I tried calling ten different plumbers but only two actually called back and none could come that night. So I ran out to Home Depot before it closed and picked up a role, with a spare just in case. I'd already turned off the main for obvious reasons so I applied the product. There are two parts to it: an epoxy that you knead for two minutes goes on first. You're not supposed to build it up but sort of stuff it into the hole/crack and wipe off the rest. I've never been sure if this accomplishes anything but I did it anyway. Then the tape: dip in water for 20 seconds, knead 2-3 time (it doesn't say clearly, but I think you're supposed to knead in the water during that twenty seconds, not after you take it out) then quickly wrap around the pipe. This is the trickiest part: you MUST get it on cleanly, overlapping each wrap well, then when it's on keep wetting your hands and twisting and kneading it in place. After a half hour I turned the main on, and it... held. Not completely: 10 drops per minute, but way better than the gallons per minute of before. Next day, it was down to 1 drop per minute. Whew. I have two spare rolls, and I might put another on top of this, but I don't want to maybe cause trouble trying to make it perfect.
