leaking shower pipe ideas


I used an old fitting on my shower to find out it leaks... alot under pressure. sprays i should say. So here is my idea. rather than cutting a hole and ripping out the pipe and replacing it im thinking.... Use copper epoxy i bought from lowes. And putting a rubber boot over that with a hose clamp. Think it would work. Thanks for your answers.

Why not fix it right?

What will you save by rigging it up?

What will it cost to fix it right?

What will it cost in damage if your rig fails?
