I have a lead pipe supply line that has pin hole leaks. I don't have the money to replace this supply line, but when I'm working again it will need to be replaced. Until I'm working again i was hoping to find a way to temporarily repair it.
I have used a small hammer and tapped the pin holes and this would close the pin hole holes somewhat, but the leaking returns over time.
Could i wrap the lead pipe where it is leaking with rubber cut from a tire inner tube and tighten it down with a stainless steel pipe clamp/ Band Clamp?
I understand that the lead pipe in soft and i wouldn't want to over tighten it. This would only be a temporary repair until i'm working again.
I would appreciate any help you can give me and i tried to post some photos, but they wouldn't upload.
