Top PVC Pipe Repair related questions
Yes, a plumber must have a license. When you hire a licensed plumber, you can be sure that they know local building codes and regulations, have experience working on small and big plumbing projects, and are insured. Make sure to ask your Tasker if they are licensed before accepting their offer!
Not necessarily. Plumbers are expected to carry the essentials in their toolbox. These include a pipe wrench, basin wrench, hacksaw, a plumber’s torch, and an adjustable wrench. You don’t need to worry about purchasing any of these when hiring a licensed and experienced plumber.
For a quick PVC pipe leak repair, you can use electrical or duct tape. Wrap it around the pipe a few times and secure it with hose clamps (if you have any). This is a quick and temporary fix you can do while waiting for your plumber. Always remember to be extremely careful while handling pipes. You don’t want to cause any more damage to a leak!
The biggest difference between a cast iron and PVC pipe is its material. From its name, a cast iron pipe is made of iron. It is known to be more durable than a PVC pipe but more susceptible to rusting. It also costs a lot more. On the other hand, a PVC pipe is made of thermoplastic best used for outdoor drainage. It costs a lot less than a cast iron pipe but is not as durable.
Installing a PVC pipe indoors is not recommended. This is because PVC pipes are susceptible to damage in high temperatures. It is known to expand when exposed to high-temperature water and highly acidic wastes.
Depending on what needs to be done, a PVC pipe repair can take about 30 minutes to a few hours. This depends on how many leaks or holes the pipe has. Your plumber will also tell you that you need to be careful with touching and handling pipes after repairs since some materials need to dry properly before use.

What do PVC pipe repair services include?
Most homes make use of PVC pipes for their outdoor irrigation and drainage systems. They are known to be sturdy and easy to use compared to old cast iron pipes. Although, when it comes to a PVC pipe repair, it’s best to call a licensed professional for the job. Here’s what you can expect when you book PVC pipe repair services:
Repairing PVC leaks with tape
Rubber or silicone repair tape is best used to stop leaks from escalating in emergencies. A licensed plumber uses this because it is known to be solid and reliable. Instead of sticking onto the pipe, it clings onto itself. Its elastic qualities help increase the compression as it wraps around itself.
However, a plumber will choose to use a repair epoxy to stop leaks from worsening. Epoxy is a liquid or putty that is directly applied to the pipe to repair it. This is best left to a professional since using it can be tricky. They can also assess your downpipe installation for any leaks and holes. These may also be sealed off with rubber and silicone tapes.
Using a fiberglass wrap
Using a fibreglass wrap is a more permanent fix used by plumbers in repairing your broken PVC pipe. Here, a fibreglass cloth covered with water-activated resin is used to improve the broken or leaking spot of the pipe. It is essential that the fabric is wet and wrapped around the area carefully. It is then left for 10 to 15 minutes for the resin to activate and extend on the pipe. This can also be an option when repairing your water tank if it is also experiencing similar leaks to your PVC pipe.
Securing holes with a rubber and hose clamps
For PVC pipe hole repairs, a licensed plumber may choose to use rubber and hose clamps. A rubber clamp is used for smoother PVC pipes. However, this is not an excellent choice to use if the hole on your PVC pipe is found on the corners or edges. To use a horse clamp, it must open all the way and be wrapped with the rubber around the pipe. The hose clamps tighten around the pipe. This helps prevent a burst pipe if secured well.
