    Hi, I have discovered the 1/2" copper pipe that comes from the wall to fill my tub has a hole caused by the set screw + excessive yanking on the shower diverter. Water was leaking back into the wall. The hole into the wall didn't have any caulking or other sealant - I plan to seal it up. What is the best non-soldering option for plugging the hole caused by the set screw? The repair has to fit inside the new tub spout.

    How far out from the wall on the copper is the hole.
