I have a PVC pipe inside the wall in the right front corner of my office closet. It has holes in it, and it carries washing machine water from washing machine to the basement to dispose of it however it does. The holes are causing water to leak every time I do laundry.
I purchased a pipe repair wrapping kit, and was just about to repair, when I realized that behind the pipe is a another wall and there isn't enough space to bring the wrap around behind the PVC.
So as far as I can tell, I have two options:
- Go and buy a Fernco and connect them that way (I may yet have the same problem-I'm not sure the Fernco would fit either)
- Cut into the wall behind the pipe and make a square so I have room to wrap.
I don't like 2 because I don't know what's behind the back wall, and I think it will be difficult to repair the drywall.
Here's a picture (the holes in the pipe are there because I'm a moron):
I could use some guidance.
