    Repairing a 3/8" line tap in a 2"

    I had to move one of the line taps I installed for my LQ (and now chemlink) setup. How do I cover up a 3/8" hole in a 2" line? Right now I am using a strip of rubber and a hose clamp. Is there something made to repair this, or do I need to splice in a 2" coupling?

    I threaded mine and screwed a plug in it.

    If its in a straight run of pipe, I would cut and couple it. It spares you having to find a tap, and tapping older sch 40 pipe isnt always possible.
