Have a 3/4 house Cu water pipe that is being abraded by a garage door
spring when it opens and closes.
Very hard to re-position either.
Anyone have any suggestions as to what I might "wrap" the Cu pipe with
to minimize the abrasion caused by the spring coils as it opens and closes ?
Anything put there to stop the rub will be forgotten about until the
copper eventually wears through. Could be next month or five years from
now. If there is some flex, attach a wire to it and attach it to an
anchor on the wall to pull it away.
Alternative is a piece of PEX and two sharkbite fittings.
PVC conduit repair kit. It's just a piece of pvc sliced in two

The local hardware store would have a pvc pipe nipple that could be
lengthwise. Glue and/or hose clamps to put it together where you want
Sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Flooding is no fun. The only
solution is to move the pipe. I'm sure you can move it over at least a
few inches by adding or removing a few inches and/or modifying the
fittings to re-route it.
