Hello Mknaynay1211 and welcome to the community.

In order to be able to give you a real and sensible answer I would need to know a little bit more about the water pipe that you are having problems with.

What is the size of the pipe that you are planning to repair?

What kind of material is it made of; copper, plastic or galvanized iron?

Can you post a picture of the damaged pipe?

Also having said that you have a small leak/crack on the damaged pipe I’m assuming that you are talking about the sewer/drain pipe? Water supply lines do not leak small, even the smallest crack on the pressured water line results in serious water outflow.

So please follow up. We love questions and we are here to help.
