At Best Service Plumber, we understand the frustration of dealing with a leaking PVC pipe. In this article, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to effectively repair a leaking PVC pipe to prevent further damage.


Step 1: Turn Off the Water Supply The first step is to turn off the water supply to the affected area. This will prevent further water damage and make it easier to repair the leaking PVC pipe.


Step 2: Drain the Pipe Next, drain the pipe by opening the faucet at the lowest point in the affected area. This will allow any remaining water to drain out of the pipe.


Step 3: Locate the Leak Using a pipe cutter, cut out the affected section of the PVC pipe. Locate the leak by checking for visible cracks or holes.


Step 4: Clean and Prepare the Area Clean and prepare the area around the leak by sanding the edges of the pipe and the inside of the PVC fitting. This will help ensure a secure and tight seal.


Step 5: Apply PVC Primer and Cement Apply PVC primer and cement to both the pipe and the fitting. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and let the cement dry completely before turning the water supply back on.


Step 6: Test for Leaks After the cement has dried, turn the water supply back on and check for leaks. If there are no leaks, you’ve successfully repaired your PVC pipe.
