Stops leaks under pressure without turning off the water source

A plumber recommended this to me for a pipe that had a slowly weeping leak in it. It didn’t make sense to replace the pipe, as it was part of an old system slated to be torn down in a year or two. I installed it myself after debriding the area surrounding the leak.

The YouTube video was the perfect instruction manual:

It does bond instantly, so be careful when positioning your wraps! Six months later, it is holding up like a champ; There is no evidence of further leaking. (My photo is above.)

I no longer live in a place with a sprinkler/irrigation system. But I wish I had known about this when I did. Those tube are so fragile and they spring leaks all too easily.

I bought mine from Amazon. It is pricey, but compared to hiring a plumber, it’s a bargain.
