    Default whats the best rod for dirty leaky poop pipe!

    im a welder in a waste water plant and we get sludge line that crack or devolop pin holes at times. I have chased these leaks for 10 years now and always have a problem that when i weld the heat draws the water and sludge out and its hard to get it to seal...i mainly use a 6011 and cover it with a 7018 but its the same story..lasts a day or 2 then finds its way our...any help...please note these are always in the Y of 8" steel pipe..usually hard to get to and can only be done with stick due to the location

    Thanks in advance

    Try Lincoln 6010 5 P . Better yet, replace with schedule 10 stainless.

    Best rod to use is one that someon else burns!

    I can't imagine that there is going to be much better than 6010/11. I wonder, instead of welding the holes themselves, if it would be more effective to weld a patch on.

    "V" the cracks out as much as you can, then for sure 6010/11. That'll get he job done properly. 7018 won't work for you in this case.
