This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will fix a leak in a DWV (Drain, Waste, Vent) pipe.  We're talking a permanent fix, not a clamp or emergency quick fix.  And this is for the piping, not a p-trap fix.  Leaks suck, let's fix one before it ruins the flooring!

Here's a video of fixing a vent pipe leak in the attic:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - fix a leak
  - the repair needs to be permanent
  - not a p-trap repair

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the leak you're starting with
  - the repair midway through
  - the fixed leak
Looky! I'm being abducted by space aliens! Me and this tiny ad!
