Help , need a plumber to have a look at a pinhole water leak in an outside lead pipe. the pipe is teed off the mains by the previous occupant of my house and is to feed an outside tap. The leak is where the lead pipe is sweated onto the copper pipe. the only way to isolate it is by turning the main stop tap off in the pavement outside my house

Any help would be appreciated

Why not get it done properly the lead lock is the way to go, at this time of year the moisture content in lead is to high it will blow again all the good lead workers have passed on.
I do think at £90 a bit high if it is easy access should only take 30 min max. I have just phoned my plumber he could not get to you for a few days
I was given a guy called Dave off this site very good 07986 526110

This type of tape will stop leak Clicky you can get it from screaw fix, you may think yea right tape, well think again, this will stop it even if it is water mains pressure.

Just been to screwfix to get a roll of that self alamg tape burger, will have a good look at the leaking pipe over the weekend. As a temporary fix would you believe good old chewing gum is currently plugging the hole and and stopped it leaking...hahaha
