Saddle Patch Pipe Repairs

To remove it, I'd just cut the pipe right on the piercing and install a copper coupling between the two cut pipes. The steps include: shutoff the water, remove the saddle valve (unscrew the two sides), cut the pipe, clean it, apply flux to the pipe and a copper coupling, fit them together, and solder the joint by heating with a blow torch and working solder into the joint from the opposite side. A skilled plumber should have the entire job done in under 30 minutes including setup and cleanup. For the DIY'er, you'll need the following tools and parts:

Saddle Patch Pipe Repairs


A repair clamp is an instrument designed to hold a pipe in place so that a corroded, damaged, or leaky patch can be repaired or a new pipe connection can be installed. When used in an industrial setting, pipe repair clamps can be applied while the pipeline is operational or non-operational depending on the specific situation.

This will work well as long as you have enough play in one side of thepipe to deflect it away to slip the coupling on. Otherwise, you'd need to make two cuts and use two couplings. Or ifthe place where you are going to put in the tee is nearby, you couldjust replace the section between the old saddle valve and the new tee.Cheers, Wayne

I would think the difficult part about just using solder coulb begetting the pipe clean. The saddle valves leave a slight depressionin the pipe. So running emery cloth or sandpaper over it to clean, itcould be harder to get the spot at hole cleaned off.

Remove the saddle valves, and use your tubing cutter to cut the copper tube EXACTLY where the pinhole is.Now, drain the water as best you can. Shake the copper tube, to shake out the last of the water. Sweat on the T fittings where you just cut. Very simple.Since you are putting the T fittings in different places, go to your plumbing suply and ask for "slip couplers" for that tubing size. You can either cut the tubing, and repair with slip couplers. Or, you can saw the slip couplers long wise. Sand the pipe and couplers, flux em up. Lay the half-coupler over the hole. Heat, and solder. The half-coupler should patch over the hole. Follow the same counsel, to shut off the water, drain the pipes, etc.-- Christopher A. YoungLearn more about Jesus"Percival P.

The time it takes a sewer line repair or replacement can vary. The location of the pipes will play a big role in determining how long it will take to repair or replace the pipes, as will the type of damage. It might take just half-a-day to remove a major clog under a house but aging pipes that are collapsed or damaged by tree roots could take 3 to 5 days to replace. Older, outdated pipes may create complications that could require more time to repair. Often sewer repairs require excavation and digging the pipes up will take time, although trenchless repairs are also becoming common. Overall, a sewer repair takes anywhere between 1 to 3 days.

A sewer line repair underneath a house is often much easier and less time consuming than a repair in the yard or on a street. If there is a crawl space to access the pipes, the repair should be simple, otherwise, the plumber might have to go through the floor to get to the pipe. Trenchless repairs are also an option in this case.

Answer: Two options for patching the hole in your drain trap are the Multi-Purpose Epoxy Putty, as you mentioned, and the Deluxe Pipe Patch Kit. Whether you use putty or a pipe patch will depend on how permanent you want to the solution to be.

Today, I've had two different tubes fail within a minute of being inflated because the air pressure had split through the glue, effectively forming a little pipe from the puncture out to the edge of the patch. These were both patches that had been on the tube between one and three months, and I've had other patches fail the same way.

While our specialty is providing composite-based solutions for pipe leaks and remediation, our product line also features universal clamp couplings, bolted couplings, flanged adapters, service saddles, tapping sleeves, expansion joints and others.

Simply put, the service saddle is a product comprising a structure that fully encompasses a pipe and an outlet boss used to attach a corporation stop to a water main to make a service line connection. This part can be installed in either the northern or southern water service lateral and is accompanied with the following advantages:

Carbon fiber composite repairs systems offer several advantages for pipe repairs. First, they can be installed on pipes of any size, shape, or diameter. They are lightweight, even for large diameter repairs, and compatible with a wide range of pressures, up to 3,000 psi internal pressure. Carbon fiber composites work with difficult locations like a joint, welded connection, or adjacent to a flange, and they provide a long-term solution to pipe leaks. The installation is relatively easy and economical; however, it does require proper surface preparation and training of the staff performing the installation.

On the downside, Carbon fiber composite repairs require a 24-hour cure prior to taking direct pressure. The pipe must be shut down for the repair; otherwise, another technology must be used to stop the leak temporarily.

Other times, repairs slide to the right because they're difficult, unpleasant, or complicated. PVC pipe repairs regularly fall in this category. Homeowners often just don't know how to repair PVC pipe in tight spaces and so put such projects off.

I can see no one answered this and though I'm not a pro but after experiencing the same exact issue this week and doing internet research and asking staff at 3 different irrigation specialty supply stores, the common answer was: No, a new 100C Dawn Kwikseal saddle tee cannot be used to replace it because it won't have the same perfect seal as the original saddle tee install because of how the seal is done when the original hole in the poly pipe is made while the original saddle tee is clamped on. They stated that eventually it will leak and promote more root growth from the nearby tree roots. Plus, those saddle tee's will have the same failure flaw in a few years if roots grow around it breaking the nylon bolt. They all recommend cutting the pipe at or around the perforation point and using an inserted T fitting with hose clamps on either end to provide a better water tight seal. They also said you could try using the newer Kwik Tap poly saddle that has a pointed insert tube that goes into the existing hole but it may eventually leak as well. bottom line is it's more work but the better longer lasting option is to cut the poly pipe and use a T coupler insert with clamps.

During this process first undertaken in the 1940s, a smaller-sized high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or other carrier pipe is butt fused together and inserted into an existing host pipeline. Using a cable and winch system, the new liner pipe can be pulled into place. Water-activated expanding grout and oakum are installed in the annular space to prevent leakage. When the new liner is in place, all service connections are reinstated with electro-fusion bonded watertight saddle connections.
