split galvanized water pipe

Posted by tg in VA on February 01, 2014 at 08:33:11 from (

When the thaw came yesterday, one of my glavanized water lines split. It's a 3/8" piece about 6" long (the pipe, not the split) that comes off a "T" and connects to an "L". It's in the ceiling in the dog trot (breezeway) of an 80 year old house.

I'm not plumber and until I can get one next week, I've had to shut the water off.

Is there a temporary patch for galvanized pipe?
As it's in the middle of the system, I'm afraid if I cut it to screw the piece out of the T and EL, I won't be able to replace it as tightening it into the T would loosen it at the EL and vice versa.

Everything's pretty rigid where this pipe is so I don't know about trying two short pieces with one of those unions in the middle.

I had a split on a 1/2" piece before the "T" and cut it at the split and fixed it with a compression fitting. I don't think I've got the flexibility with this other piece to do the same plus the split is almost to the threads on one end. The split is about 1" long.

You guys always seem to come up with simple solutions to the most obscure problems...I'm hoping you have some ideas here to get me through until next week.
