How Can You Fix A Burst Water Pipe In The Garage

FIX WITH FIBERGLASS TAPE

Fiberglass tape is a durable plumbing fix that holds up to fluctuating water pressure better than clamps. The tape is permeated with fiberglass resin that activates when wet and quickly cures into a permanent seal. Be sure to follow product instructions, and wear protective gloves when working with the material. You can even hire trusted burst pipe repair services for your plumbing needs.

SEAL IT WITH EPOXY PUTTY

This is one of the easiest ways to permanently repair a burst pipe in the garage. Sand the pipe surface, and make sure it’s clean and dry. Knead enough epoxy putty to fill and cover the damage, apply it into and around the break, and let it cure for an hour before turning the water back on.

USE A PIPE REPAIR CLAMP

If garage pipes are in good shape, a pipe repair clamp can be a permanent fix too. It securely seals the leak with a durable rubber sheath and round metal plates. Simply prep the break, apply the clamp, and screw it into place.

CUT AND REPLACE DAMAGED PIPE

You can take some of the work out of a permanent DIY pipe fix with a burst pipe repair kit. Be sure to cut several inches past the damage on either end. File down exposed pipe, replace the bad length with the kit’s connector, and secure with included push-fit couplings.
