Question Plumbers' Putty....???

I have a small pin-hole in the bottom of the hot water boiler/tank.
I believe this can be temporarily fixed with "plumbers' putty".

Can anyone tell me what it is known as in Turkish, please?

Mary.

P.S. Is this type of putty easy to work with??
All tips on the mixing, application and drying/hardening time etc., are gratefully accepted.

Dont use Plumbers Putty it will still leak its for joints not plugging holes,you will need to get it soldered if its copper inside or fiberglassed if its plastic inside

Re: Plumbers' Putty....???

İf the tank has corroded no amount of repairs will fix it as the repair will be stronger than the original it will merely cause a breakdown in the materials at another place. İf on the other hand it's a small hole made in the tank answer as above TNT.

Re: Plumbers' Putty....???

I guess I am looking for a quick-fix solution. The tank does not have corrosion, just the bloody pin-hole. I hate to get rid of something if it can be fixed. The tank is only 3 years old.
I have thought of the soldering option, but by the time I pay someone to take it off the wall, pay someone to take it to be soldered, pay for the work on it, and then pay again to put it back up on the wall....it might be just a cheap to buy a new one.
There are some garages behind us here where we are. I might go and ask them if they would come and take a look. I mean if they can fix holes in car exhausts......

Mary.

Mary,
If it is a pressurized hot water boiler/storage tank I wouldn't consider a repair

Re: Plumbers' Putty....???

A typical woman's question.......lol. How would I know? There is no pressure gauge dial, but it does give the maximum and minimum water pressure bars on the label.

Mary.
it would be connected directly to the water main cold pipe on one side and hot water out on another, the fact it has max min pressure labling would suggest it is pressurised

Re: Plumbers' Putty....???

Aye Martin, that's the kind it is.
Can I ask why you advise not fixing it? There is no erosion, just the pin hole. Are you saying that the pressure would just blow out/off any soldering?

Re: Plumbers' Putty....???

For me Mary the problem would be if it blew while I was out, and I dont mean in the UK, for 300TL I would replace it and get a further guarantee, its just the mess and damage a burst can cause, I just know I would regret noyt replacing it

just my opinion really
