Oakum to stop a water leak around a pipe coming in basement
By DJ1951 from Nevada, Mo.

Verified Purchase

I had a 4 inch pipe in my basement wall that carried the electrical wiring into my house. The plug that the contractor used to plug the hole failed. Being familiar with plumbing used the old cast iron I searched for Oakum as I was sure it would plug the hole. I filled the hole with oakum, packing in it tightly and then put a 1" layer of quickset expanding concrete to hold the oakum in place.

Oakum works great
By Kurt from International Falls MN

Verified Purchase

We use Oakum as a sealant for our hydro turbines. Seals dissimilar materials like cast iron, steel and concrete. It sets up and becomes a permanent repair.

worked like a charm
By jp1maui from Maui, Hawaii

Used the oakum to pack a toilet flange joint before pouring in the molten lead. It worked great. I wasn't sure if marine oakum was going to work for this job, but it worked fine.

We used this oakum on our batteau, Morning Star, for the James River Batteau Festival this year and found it to be just as good as the high priced oakum, good short lengths (2 and 1/2 foot) and great price, [...]!
