    ADP B Series Heating Coil Water Leak

    Hello,

    I have an ADP BCRM series internal air handler. During the winter, some water was left in the heating (water) coil, it froze and cracked. There is now a hole in the bottom 'U' pipe (it looks like 3/8" copper?). I attached a photo but I'm not sure if I can post it. Can that be repaired or must the whole heater coil unit be replaced, or even worse the whole air handler - which is impossible as there's no access to the attic large enough. How big a job is each option ?

    Ideally, it's something I can patch with epoxy putty, UV cure epoxy etc. to last 12 months until I may be doing a remodel and a pro can do it properly.

    thanks.

    Any halfway decent technician should be able to repair that with a little bit of braze.

    Should be brazed. Epoxy will likely not work.
