Hi rcrc111529003,

 

The repair of your pipe depends upon the problem and the type of pipe.

 

Often the water is leaking elsewhere and running down onto the pipe making it appear that it is the one leaking.

 

Check the surrounding plumbing for possible sources.

 

Is it leaking at a joint? This may be solved by simply tightening that joint.

 

If the pipe is galvanized steel, rust may be an issue causing the leak, in which case that section of pipe may have to be replaced.

 

If you can send us a photo of the leak and the surrounding area, we may be able to help you pinpoint the problem.

 

Mike,
