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.

Adjust 50mm PVC pipes for new Laundry Tub
Putney NSW 2112, Australia
15th Jun 2021
I installed a new Laundry Tub but the copper drain outlet is approx 2cm too low; see attached photo. Whilst I can connect all the new P Trap PVC pipes together, the connection to the “ too low” copper drain pipe puts a strain on the P Trap seals & thread, causing them to leak water. I need the PVC pipes to be adjusted to prevent any strains which cause the leaks. I have spare PVC pipes and seals if needed.
Highly recommended ! Craig arrived less than 24 hours of my task being posted; and at our agreed time. Awesome communication and a fantastic bloke. Quickly fixed our Laundry Tub drainage leak.
