Prior to the mid-1960s, copper and galvanized pipe were installed rather than PVC or poly. If either of these types of pipe is found underground or leading into a backflow unit, they pose a unique repair problem.
I'm planning on practicing the barb insertion on a scrap first. A lock fitting coupler can be removed but it will make the interior of the tubing in the repaired area smaller.
So I sprung a water leak in my main water line. It seems like right around 200 degrees was what it took.

I had a leak in my old Poly water main line going to my house. A type of recruitment strategy. Position the clamps over the fittings and crimp closed.
About how much do I want to heat the pipe? If possible after turning on the water again, let the spliced section set over night, then retightning the clamps again before covering the line up. Sorry I don't have information on repair because I only use K copper underground with no joints.
What is this pipe and why is water always coming from it? If you are really careful, you can try a soldering torch with a flame spreader.
Check with your local inspectors. The process for identifying and locating a leak is similar for PVC and poly, but the repair process differs. I used 200psi pipe for the repair, apparently by the measurements my old pipe is 160psi, I figured I might as well go for the best.
