If the pipe freezes and cracks for several inches or
more, a new section will be needed. This usually requires
the services of a professional who has tools and
equipment.

Sometimes a small hole develops from freezing, damage, or
another reason. These small holes can be repaired
temporarily by wrapping tape tightly around a small leak.

A hose clamp compressing a rubber pad can cure
pinpoint leaks or cracks.

A pipe clamp bolted over a rubber pad seals larger
cracks permanently.
