Corroded and Exposed Water Pipe Repair

Several repairs using different products were unsuccessfully attempted on this corroded water pipe. Even a water activated resin bandage repair had failed as the pipe degrade, causing the leak to reappear.

This time, LLFA Tape was tasked with the challenge of sealing the leak. After removing the defective resin repair, LLFA Tape was applied to the pipe to seal the affected area completely.

As LLFA Tape is constantly under tension, it is able to move with the pipe even as it expands and contracts in this exposed position on a roof top. In addition, LLFA Tape won’t be degraded by UV rays. So this is a good repair.
