Above : The leak at 7th street and St. Marks Place is repaired .
Above : The stainless steel band above is the device used to repair the leak at 7th and St. Marks Place and will be used also to repair the leak art 80 E. 4th street . The band is placed over the leaking area of the pipe and is drawn up tightly around the pipe compressing an elastomeric gasket which seals the leak . Sometimes this is a permanent fix and sometimes it is a temporary fix which will hold untill a larger section of damged or weakened pipe can be replaced with either a high density plastic or steel pipe .
