Troubleshooting a Pipe Repair for Low Pressure

I’m going to give you a quick tutorial on pipe repair that have low pressure. The first thing you want to do is make sure the power and water are off. Then, unscrew any caps or covers in the area of the leak and turn on your flashlight so you can see what’s going on better.

Now, look for any obstructions like rocks, fish bones, or other items inside the pipe and remove them with pliers if necessary.

Next, take a length of PVC pipe at least 2 inches smaller than the diameter of your existing pipe and drill two holes into it an inch apart from each other (one spot should be above one below). You’ll then need to cut away ¼” from both ends of the cap.

Finally, slide both ends of your pipe into one hole in opposite directions until you reach about an inch before the opening, and then do the same for the other end.
