Search the List for local plumbers with good reviews - probably a minimum service call charge (typically $125 plus or minus $50) and $5-10 parts if above ground. You don't say where or why leaking - but if just a spot leak you could just get a wrap-around leak repair sleeve at a plumbing or home improvement store and cover over the leak - this is not a pressure pipe, so even a piece of rubber with a hose clamp over it would probably work. If a small leak, even somepermatex might work.

I would look into WHY it leaks - hit by mower, water froze in it because it does not have a free drop to the ground, corroded, or what - and fix the cause too.
