The I.P.S, also known as “Iron Pipe Side” is a typical type of leak. Make use of sealing tape. Cover it clockwise for sealing the joint three times. Pipe thread sealant, or pipe dope may be utilized to seal the threads of the joint. You then screw in the pipe using a hand the channel lock tool.
The third DIY repair you can do is to repair that of the compression joint. The compression joint, also known by the name of mechanical joints, involves two parts: a nut, and ferrel. When you secure the leak to the ferrel (a brass ring) will be forced onto the pipe.
