Water is constantly dripping from the lap you have placed around the pin hole in the water pipe. Let’s see how easy it is to fix the drip and give peace of mind. With some fantastic improvements in pipe fittings in recent years, the repair of plumbing has been done very simply. Many leaks are caused by a few things. Pin hole in copper pipe caused by pitting inside pipe. Usually this is due to poor water quality. The inside of the splinter pipe causes a hole in the pipe that can eventually get outside. This is often given by the green dot usually seen on the outside of the copper pipe first.
This is caused by minerals left by water evaporating from the surface of the pipe. So, in fact there is a leak before there is a leak. Another major problem is the joining of two different types of pipes. Copper and PVC or Copper and Pex are two examples. The rate of expansion of the two types of materials is very different. This causes friction and constant movement where the two meet. This movement will eventually cause enough gaps to let water leak out. Until recently there have been many improvements out there involving garden hoses, inner tubes, hose clamps, epoxies, and many other creative improvements. I have seen too much to describe it all.

Now there is a great way to fix the leak with simple push thrust. The new design of push fitting allows the pipe to be cut in the hole and then the clutch is simply pushed into the pipe to fix the leak. The hardest part of the whole process is cutting the pipe neatly. The same installation can also be used to replace the pesky plastic into a copper union that always seems to be problematic. Joining different types of piping is no longer a problem. By doing a quick search for push fitting you can find a number of different suppliers of this type of installation. I’ve used a number of different ones and they all seem to work fine. My preference is brass type because they seem to be much more rugged in construction. The price of the fittings also reflects that.
The most common one I have ever seen and used is the Sharkbite Brand. It’s very good, sold in many home plumbing supplies, and at Home Depot Stores. Other companies include Watts, Probite, Tectite, and Speedfit. I am sure that I have left some problems. These are some that I know and have used. Bottom line is that it is now very easy even for jockey desks to repair their own pipes. Go to the home improvement store cupboard in your home. Pick up some of these fittings and put on a wife with a talent she does not know. You might even be brave and do a small pipe project that has been asked for. Now you can use this fittings to cut water channels in order to run a new outer faucet or a hookup that filters out your own water. With push type pipe installation it has been made easy enough for anyone to be able to do it.
