Water piple attached to the wall loose


I hope someone can help me here.

The waterline pipe that's inside the wall is pretty loose, I want to make it back to the way that it won't move, what type of stuff should I use?

cement? glue? or ?

One more quesiton, what type of cement or clay is it for the outside house wall here in CA?

Thanks

ok, i know it's called stucco.

how do I get some extra stucco to match the color of my original stucco? By looking at it, i can't tell what color it is

put pipe insulation on it,then use steel strip w/pre cut holes to secure arund the pipe insulation and secure to side of a stud(locate arond pipe right next to stud)----as far as the stucco,take a sample piece,compare it to the cement die colors,mix a preset amt of cement,start w/small amts of coloring until you match the color,keep exact recoerd of ratio as you add the die,you may need to redo as section as the wet will be darker as it dries unless you`re lucky and you can make tests and see how the color dries next to the pre-existing(do it on a board for comparison purposes)

You use a clamp to connect the water pipe to the wall. The metal of the clamp should be the same as the metal the pipe's made of. If the pipe is too far from the wall to attach, install blocking behind the pipe. Do you know what the pipe is made of?
Stucco is tinted with a powdered coloring when it's mixed, you won't duplicate that. Some stucco has been painted, that you might get close.

The pipe is coming out the wall horizontally, those pipe straps would work if it's vertically.

Is the "pipe" a water hose bibb?
If it is, the bibb should have a place for two screws on the sides. If it's coming out through stucco, you need to pre-drill the screw holes with a masonry bit, tap in lead screw plugs, and then screw the hose bibb to them. Any hardware store or big box should be able to give you what you need.
