SF Plumber :

Hi, I take it this is a soldered joint that is leaking. It will need to be taken apart and re-soldered

Customer:

Is trere no other quick fix solution

SF Plumber :

Unfortunately there isn't there are no good patches that will hold water pressure for any length of time and you are just wasting your time with that. A plumber should ba able to fix a leak like that in 15 minutes or less

Customer:

Thanks for your help
