How to fix leaks or pinholes in copper pipe by using rubber and a jubilee clip, compression fittings and solder fittings. We also talk about how leaks can occur.

I’ve made myself little jig up just down here. I got a little packer box. I've used some absolutely glorious new powerflow flux. We’ve created this small, little header tank. That runs down to a little lever valve, so we can control this little. Then we've got a 15mm to 22mm medusa, going onto a straight coupling, a loaded 22mm pipe, with a bung at the end. I'm gonna turn the water on for you now, so you know that it's actually real. So we're pretty much ready to drill a couple of very small holes that are gonna replicate the pin holes that you can get on copper pipe. We've got a really small bit here that's gonna be drilled into our pipe to recreate our pin holes. So look at that. I've got water coming out everywhere. Number one, when you turn it up, so what am I gonna do? First thing, try to find out where you can turn the water off. Now the water is off. We've got our little tank up here. We can easily turn the water back on. Before we look into that, let's figure out why is it that there's pin holes in this pipe in the first place. Usually you find that it's flux in the pipe work from when an apprentice, years ago, put too much flux in. It was from the days before water-soluble flux. It's basically got caught in the pipes somewhere and over the last 30 years, or so, it's basically bored its way through the pipe and you start getting these little pin holes. If that's the reason, you've got to start worrying about the pipe work in the rest of the house. You've got to start thinking I'll fix this pin hole now, but I might be back here in six months replacing the whole bit of pipe. First up, we're going to do the, oh my god, there's a pin hole. I need to get this fixed so I can pop back on and fix this properly. This is the quick fix. What you're gonna do is get yourself a little bit of rubber. It could be anything rubber. Anything you can just press over the hole. Then grab yourself a jubilee clip. You're going to basically pop this little bit of rubber over here and then you're gonna get your jubilee clip and you're gonna close your jubilee clip up, and then you're gonna do that up nice and tight. You'll notice, straight away, if you turn the water back on, we've still got our two other pin holes but the one we've done so far is now fixed temporarily. Now if we turn the water back on, you should see, no leaks. That's pin hole pipe repair number one done. Now let's have a quick look at pin hole pipe repair number two. The first thing we've got to do is turn
