Drain Pipe Repair

This home had a slow on again off again leak, the new home owner had thought it was inside the wall behind the kitchen sink, which was an outside wall and had little chance of getting to it without a major tear out of the kitchen cabinets, down in the basement where the water was leaking had simply placed a bucket underneath it to catch the drips when it did leak, it happened to be right over the washing machine, this lasted for a year or so and it had been slowly getting worse. I found the cracked pipe and was able to repair it without tearing up the walls. The last homeowner had placed a piece of wood under the pipe to try and slow the leak.
