They also have a spray on sealer they claim will stop leaks. However I agree with palehorse if your going to the store anyway just get what you need to do it right and do it once. Nice way to spend Christmas Eve but nothing ever breaks at a convenient time.

What I would do and have done is not even try the temporary fixes unless it is just to get to where I could fix it. If it is just the cemented joint leaking the use a heat gun to heat up the fitting. You need to get it quite warm, but not to the point of melting it. That will soften up the glue and you should be able to get the pipe out of the joint, Then you need to make sure you clean every bit of dirt, grease, water, etc. from where the glue goes. If there are any contaminants on it or in the fitting the glue will not seal. Clean e both the pipe and fitting and then glue just like you normally would (primer both the pipe and fitting and before the primer dries get glue on both the pipe and fitting). Shove the pipe home making sure that everything else is lined up and hold it for a few seconds so it won't push out. Now you can test your work!!
BTW, I am a retired licensed plumber and have done this type of fix many times.....

Hey there,

Leaks are never good, but for a quick temporary quick fix, try using that stuff you see on TV called "Flex Seal"
I had a leaky drain pipe from my toilet flange and needed a temporary quick fix. It fixed it so well its still working and its been a year.

Take it for what its worth ....

IF it is the junction between Pipe and fitting re-do
If it is the air admittance valve replace
If it is something else (IE crack in pipe) GOOP Plumber's flavor.
(goop comes in many flavors, most all will work, but there are minor differences that make Plumber's best for plumbing, Household should work well too)

Leakender 2000 is one brand name, Rustoleum makes a very similar product that worked very well sealing a tiny leak on my MH roof guttering. It will seal anything not pressurized.

It sounds like a bunch of these miracle sealants and glues would cost way more than a foot of two of ABS drain pipe and a couple of connector pieces, and ABS glue. Then it would be done correctly and not have to constantly check that the magic sealant has done it's infomercial claim.
Sorry aandbr, it's not a quick fix but faster and cheaper than some of the miracle seals, coatings and glues.....and you won't have to pay shipping and handling charges! If you're traveling, stop at a Lowes or Home Depot, cut out the section of the plumbing that contains the leak and match up parts to build a new one. Do it all right there in the parking lot to save you the typical second trip to the plumbing parts store. Then have lunch and be on your way to your next stop.

That is what I will do once we are parked in La Grange for 4 months while hosting @ Monument Hill State Park. Right now I don`t have the time required for a permanent fix. It`s a long story and I din`t want to bore you with it. Trust me when I say TIME is at a premium for the next 5 days.

Safe travels.

Unfortunately I am in Lake Houston House and dog sitting till the 30th and my wife is with the Motorhome in Livingston 75 miles away pulling her hair out and wanting a quick fix.
In 5 days we will be in La Grange TX @ a state pk. for 4 months, that`s when I will do a permanent fix.

Safe travels.
