hello all. Absolute plumbing novice here.
I have a "lead-lock" pipe adaptor thing which joins the lead to the copper
hot water pipe under my sink.
I have been replacing a bit of copper pipe further down the line and I have
disturbed the lead lock as it has started to slightly weep from where the
lead pipe enters the fitting.
It drips once about every 30mins.
I do not have the tools to tighten it up. My mole grips won't go near it.
Is there some sort of paste/putty I can use to put a thin bead around the
lead pipe where it enters the fitting ?
Can it be used while wet ? (the missus is fed up of having the water off)
I hate plumbing. grrrrrr
