In response to Re: Very Slow Leak at Pipe Joints
That connection should not be a glue joint. It is either a screwed iron pipe fitting, or a compression copper fitting. I would not suggest doing it yourself, unless you know exactly what kind of connection it is and how to fix it. Otherwise, you are liable to have everybody without water until a plumber can come out and correct the problem after you take it apart.

: I have a very slowly leaking pipe joint in the bathroom at the toilet where the main water supply comes in to feed the toilet tank. Which one is the best plumber's glue on the market I could buy? Should I use a plumber's glue at all? Does anybody have experience with glue? I do want to be able to disassemble the joints in the future if I have to, therefore, I am afraid to apply the glue. The pipe joints are under pressure, and I know I should replace the joint itself as a permanent solution, but I live in a condo, and believe it or not, if I want to turn the water off while doing the repair, my neighbours would be without water, too. So I am trying to find a glue that would do the job. (The leak is really just one drop every other day or so. I know it will probably get worse in time.)
: Any help is appreaciated!
