Questions & Answers


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

Asked by Bobor March 16, 2021

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

Will it stop a drip on underground poly sprinkler pipe at a union between two stainless hose clamps?

Asked by hobbyrepairman September 14, 2020

Nope use a union and hose clamps instead

After it hardens, how would you remove it from pipe?

Asked by JP November 19, 2019

Cut the pipe

will it hold on a hot water pipe?

Asked by grandma March 20, 2017

Did nothing t try but how the science works I do not see any reason why not if below residential temps

pipe wrap

Asked by THOMAS July 29, 2015

I think it would likely work. Especially in the short term to get you out of a pinch until a more detailed complete replacement can come about.

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.

I had a small round hole in a steam pipe. I thought I would have to replace the whole pipe. But this repaired it perfectly. It was very easy to apply, almost like applying a bandage to a finger. No longer is there any water or steam escaping from that pipe.

So impressed. My son dug up my sisters flower bed for her. Turned out that the bed had sprinkler system lines under it. He busted a T fitting buried beneath the earth. The repair was going to be a difficult one as it was to require several joints, nineties and unions. I took a chance and used this product in hopes of not having to do a large repair/rebuild. The repair held with zero leaks!

Repaired a 1-1/4" T at the bottom of a 5ft hole. The key to success is read the instructions top to bottom and be prepared to work in a smooth and fast manner. Surfaces were sanded with 100 grit after the pressure was turned off and the joint completely dried. Kneading the putty was pretty straight forward as I formed a bead to go around the joint. I worked the putty in place until smooth with a slight overlap on the outside OD of the T. Since I could only work with one hand, I cut the first two runs of wrap into 12in lengths. This allowed me to work the wrap into place on the lower section of the T with the second wrap overlapping the first layer. The third wrap which, was the balance of aprox. 2ft on the spool started at the bottom of the T and worked up a few inches of the pipe. The key here is to keep the gloves very wet and work the epoxy into the weave and the edges of the connection. I spent a minute or two just shaping the layers into a smooth wrap until my gloves started to stick to the outside. Done. I waited a couple of hours just to make sure as the pressure is around 150lbs. After 2 hours the patch was rock solid and ready for testing. I am happy to report no leaks and a solid patch. I have worked with a lot of resins in the past and understand that layout and pre-planning are important to prevent a botched repair. The Pro's are the curing time. PVC glue is 24hours and this is much less. Especially if its the main feed to your house. Sets in minutes vice hours. High adhesion to PVC. A Con, if you stop and think about it, it's too late and will most likely end up with a poor or botched patch. This is a one shot deal. Be prepared. Especially if your doing this with one hand.
