copper hot water pipe joint leaking -help1
Posted by John Norton on August 17, 19100 at 18:54:41:
The elbow (?) joint on a copper pipe going up into my first
floor shower is leaking around the joint. Hot water line.
This is under floor (at basement ceiling, I can see it
and get to it easily). New work - three months old. I
need to seal it at least temporarily. I'm in a very rural
area. I have some Dap silicone rubber sealant. Will this
corrode the pipe? I also have some plumber's putty, some
joint compound, and I'm sure I have some epoxy somewhere.
Also some Liquid Nails/small projects. Will any of this
work?
