Having a leaky pipe is a messy, annoying situation that could lead to mold growth, water damage to your home, and ruined belongings. If one of your pipes is acting out, the following post will teach you how to provide a temporary fix for it,.

How to Do a Temporary Fix on a Leaky Pipe

  1. First, deal with the water. Place a bucket under the leak to avoid more spillage. Then, dry the place: use a sponge, a mop, or any other method to that end. This, so you can avoid mold growth and water damage.
  2. Next, it's time to inspect the pipe. You need to find the exact place from which the water is seeping out. Doing so will allow you to be fix the issue effectively.
  3. Of course, you don't want any more water to spill out and waste away. To ensure it doesn't, close the water supply for that pipe.
  4. To do an effective job, you also need to prepare the pipe for the repair. To that end, you have to wipe it down and dry it thoroughly, so you can have a clean and dry spot to work
  5. An important step is to get the necessary supplies to go through with the reparation. For instance, use epoxy putty. After reading its instructions, apply a thick layer over the damage area. Let it dry thoroughly and use water resistant tape over it to secure it further.
  6. Before you can reopen the valve, be completely certain that the epoxy putty is dry. Once you reinstate the water flow, take a look at your repair and notice if it's working.
  7. As mentioned above, this is only a temporary fix, which means the last step is to call a professional company that can assess the situation, fix the leak, determine what caused it, and prevent it from happening again.
