    Bread is a lifesaver when the water just wont stop trickling out of the pipe. Roll it into a ball and stuff it in the pipe. It stops the leak but will dissolve harmlessly

    Great idea. I never thought of that. What happens to the extra buns at the end of the day? Break out the torch and hot dogs and you have instant dinner.

    I've used the bread trick a few times when soldering.

    What I don't know, is if it's a Texas approved repair tool though.

    that set is considerably more expensive than a loaf of bread

    .....not to mention a hell of a lot more effective. There is another, cheaper, set of tools, with a flexible core, that is supposed to be able to fit through elbow fittings, but I doubt they can hold back the pressures that Jet Swet tools can.

    Would you care to demonstrate with your set?

    You'll have to ask Sprinkler Daddy. I don't do videos. Don't expect to score the full set on eBay for eleven dollars.
