    Other company swabbed blue cement around the outside of already cemented fittings and said all fixed.

    ever use the silicone tape? I used it as an experiment on a 6" steam line to fix a 1/4" hole. It's still there, leak-free.

    IMO, it's a little hacky, but the stuff works as advertised.

    I like it best to temporarily seal water leaks in the middle of the night so I can worry about fixing it properly during the day.

    I once used it to wrap steel chill water pipe that was pitted with pinhole leaks until the pipe could be replaced.
