Run into this problem occasionally on the job. The easiest way to repair it is to shut off and drain the water. Use a wetvac to suck the water out of the pipe if you can get one. Solder the holes in the pipe with siver solder. This way you don't have to chip any cement and the repair will be as strong as new pipe. Use a heat shield to prevent burning the wall behind the pipe.
