Hello All, Just joined and I need help to temporarily stop my water main from leaking while I trench and lay a new water main for my home. Right now it leaks approx. 160 gph. Is there a way to stop or slow the leak to 1-5 gals/day for about a month while I put in a new water main that will run about 160' uphill from the meter to the house. The hole is in the center of the badly corroded pipe in attached pics. I tried wire brushing the pipe to see if I could get a smooth part of the pipe for cutting and compression fittings. Forget it, this pipe from 1972 is done. Is there a plumbing compound I could spread over the hole and surrounding area of the rusted galv pipe and maybe put a clamp over it to reduce the leak to 1-5 gals/day would be acceptable, while I put in a new water main?
