Question about Plumbing
I drilled a hole in the wall to hang a towel rack and drilled a hole in a copper water pipe.(dead center) I cut out the dry wall around it and have access to it but how do i fix it? (water is turned off)
Judging by how calm you sound it's likely a drainage or vent pipe and not a supply pipe which would be spraying all over the place the moment your drill pierced it. You'd have little choice but to cut the pipe and solder a coupling in there. If it's just a drainage or vent pipe you can buy an MJ (Mechanical Joint) coupling at Home Depot....these don't require fancy tools or torches to use.. The MJ coupling comes in two parts...a rubber part that joins two pipes and a stainless steel band with a couple of gear clamps....you just tighten the gear clamps and the compression does the rest.
