What type of pipe are you looking at?If it is copper then you can fine someone to solder it.If it is plastic pipe with glue joints,then you get some glue call rain and shine,clean first then apply wait a few minutes.But turn the water first.

SOURCE: Plumbing, gas pipes leaking

What you are doing is very hard to do without adding a union to the piping. There really isn't anything more you can do than what you already are doing. But if you have bubbled each joint and can't find anymore leaks then move to your valves. Also, flex lines have a tendency to leak as well. Like the ones that go to your water heater, stove/oven, furnace and small gas appliances. Check for the old style valves that don't meet code anymore like the valves with a bolt all the way through the valve. You will want to change them out to a ball valve. I hope this answers your question.

Water leaking

Check all external pipes, includeing the ones at top. If you find no pipeing leaks, the odds are, depending on age and waranty, you
have an internal tank leak and need to replace. There is virtually no way to fix that kind of leak.

My logik freezer wont freeze

Hi, the motor (compressor) is not working, or the gas is not circulating properly due to a blocked choke ( A much thicker short section of the piping housed at the back of the body) or the gas is leaking out, probably by now there is no more gas in the pipes. But first check to see and hear if the motor is working when switched on.If the motor does run, then it is definitely a gas circulation problem due to the two mentioned above facts. Only the repair man can help in any one of these circumstances
If there is a gas leak, then you will have to buy a new present day modern freezers are too labor intensive to strip down to access the piping in order to repair an internal leak. If the leak is external then it is easily repairable.
Hope i have been of help
Good luck

My Bosch washing machine pumps the water out continuously without ever filling the tub. When I first start a load, the water moves through the detergent dispenser but never gets to the tub. About 5 minutes...

Could be time to call the electrician. If the freeze happened recently you are possibly further inland than me. Lagging on pipes often helps and wrapping external taps and pipes with towels or the likes for winter and with plastic tied over top if in the weather. After super cold frosts we are best not running showers and taps till midday or later occasionally. Vehicles can be similar if it is cold enough. Fill jugs and bottles the night before for breakfast if the water might freeze. If your water might be soon dirty because of a flood or water supply stopped, fill the bath with clean water before it is

What is the reason for losing water/

could be you have a leak in one of you hose,s

Broken water line or water heater, from winter freeze. When water is turned on tap water goes under the bunk bed area. Could this be the water heater or a hose in the area. We don't know the layout...

Depends on which tap you're turning ON. If it's cold water tap, it's probably a water line. If it's the hot water tap, it could also be a line. As heaters leak, whether the water tap is ON or NOT. Opening a tap valve doesn't cause the water heater to leak. The main question is, was the water heater's tank drained, before the Winter Freeze, when no one was using it? If it wasn't, there's a good chance the water heater will leak too

Hope this helps you solve the leaking water pipes problem. Please let me know Thanks.

cHECK YOUR ANTI-FREEZE LEVELS IT IS PROBABLY LOW. These engine are famous for the in take manifold leaking internally and externally on cylinder # 3 & #5. This will cause the computer to give a misfire code. Tzop up your anti freeze and pressure test the cooling system I can gauruntee you lose pressure and it will be your intake gasket. You will have to replace it the gasket kit cost about $100.00 make sure you but the Fel Pro gasket kit it has been redevelope and made from steel rather than plastic. This will solve your problem and your truck will run much better as well.

Losing coolant but can not see a leak

Leaking from what looks to be the water inlet connection...however we have changed the hose,including putting a sealant around where it connects, but it still leaks.

it could be that the nut on the pipe connection tap is leaking and not your pipe fitting try tighting the nut just a small amout do not over tighten as you will crush the copper pipe and it will leak more

Noise at strart

The tapping, I think, from the limited information, is the Valves not getting the Oil due to low oil pressure. Once the engine warms up, and the Oil pump starts to flow the oil, the tapping stops. Many vehicles, do this. I would not be overly concerned about the tapping, but I would be concerned about the coolant leak. An easy way to see if you have an external leak is to go to a local parts store, and purchase a leak test kit, which usually is a dye, which can be seen with a blacklight. Take vehicle to repair facility and have a Carbon Block Test done
