      I have finally located in my utility room wall a pinhole leak on a straight vertical copper pipe. How do I effectively fix this leak? does a clamp/rubber piece suffice?

More importantly, a means to prevent the continuation of Copper leaching from your piping should be considered…check out the site below.
