Did Billy Mays do this with his Mighty Putty?
I get so angry when I see that twat on tv. I want to cut off his hands and shave his beard. He is almost the most annoying person on tv, next to the cash for gold old lady.

protech,

please excuse my ignorance.

is that cpvc or pvc.

also, does this type of failure happen often or is this out of the ordinary?

The split pipe was pex. The HO glued cpvc to it above slab level. When that didn't work, they just dowsed the whole thing with polyester resin. The leak just popped up 3 feet away where the loop of pex came back up out of the slab. I performed a by pass in the wall with new pex.

I almost never see pex leak. In the few cases I do see it leak it's due to installation error. This piece was staked with a piece of #3 rebar and encased by the monolithic slab. It was the hot outlet of the water heater. After thousands of cycles of the rebar expanding into the pex, the pex develops a stress crack.
