Ya gotta love those who think that duct tape makes a good plumbing repair. Here's some duct tape on a plumbing vent pipe in the attic. BUT, just in case it doesn't work, we'll slip the little red bowl under the joint to catch any water. Here we see a T (serving a sump pump) taped into the main drain line. I bet there is a least two rolls of tape wrapped around that joint. No bowl needed. Hey, any leakage will just fall down to the ground. Ya gotta LOVE IT!
