    Yes.  As long as there is not separation at the fracture, it will not leak.  Generally, what will fracture the pipe will also separate the surfaces because the restraining strength of the pipe material has been reduced due to the fracture, i.e. a stress concentration.

    Nurse in Tennessee fainted after receiving COVID vaccine

    Question: why should we take it if it has such side effects?

    Nurse in Alaska had anaphylactic shock

    Trump and Biden are in cahoots to chip everyone via needles on the vaccines

    5G will kill vaccinated

    Population control = depopulation = Georgia Guide stones 500 million max population

    LA RESISTANCE ! ! !

    Doctor Fauci = son of Mother Theresa; Theresa supplied Jeffrey Epstein's island with kids to fondle with

    Adrenochrome will be extracted from dissidents in underground re-education camps; dissidents were taken there (when electricity was turned off for a few days) at 4AM after drone with scopolamine gassed them (Project Pogo and Project Zyphr)...

    Project Pogo = gov't shills Alex Jones, Qanon, Adam Green, etc. tell you something funny and you comment or like, then you'll be exterminated under Project Zyphr... David Goldberg revealed this and other stuff (like how Trump converted to Judaism) and he got executed..

    Source(s): COVID = COW ID; World Bank website says that Project COVID is from April 2nd, 2020 until 31st of March, 2025. According to the Last Prophet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's using Tesla's ether); forgive me.

    Yes, of course it's possible. We cannot possibly guess what KIND of pipe you're talking about and what might be inside or outside of it to leak.  If you mean metal water pipes, cracked by freezing, then it obviously won't leak until the water melts.  If you mean a low-pressure concrete pipe, then it won't leak because there isn't enough pressure for the slurry to penetrate the crack, although rinse-water may come through.

    It is POSSIBLE to have a crack that doesn't go all the way through the wall of the pipe. Such a crack wouldn't leak. However, the crack most likely will expand and should be repaired before it gets worse.

    yes it is as it depends on how much pressure is in the pipe

    Generally that is how you tell they are cracked...they leak...immediately.  It matters if they are drain pipes(so empty air fills them most of the time) then who cares.?  Pipes under pressure leak immediately.

    Only if the inside of the pipe is coated with something keeping the liquid from leaking through the crack such as calcium. I have seen PVC drainage pipes where people have shot holes in them and eventually stopped leaking due to an abundance of gypsum, AKA calcium sulfate, in the water building up around the hole and plugging the hole up!
