oops very sorry.. I misread the original post . please disregard my above comment.
The farther that the tuning slide is slid out, the lesser the amount of sealing surface. Highly viscous grease on the slide will 'help', but, your main problem, as Robin has stated, is that the piano is in dire need of being brought back into tune. This will allow you to push the trumpet tuning slide in and the result will be much less, or no leakage.

The Piano I played with was at my church now that I have been home from college. But now I am going back to college. THat piano has not been tuned in over 10 years and its used every single week.
My trumpet where I live sweats. I opened up the box and the whole trumpets fogged up cause it gets to like 0-5 degrees here. Is that ok for the trumpet or is that bad?
When it was that cold... even when I had the tuning slide out half inch (distance of the silver plating on inside of tuning slide) it after 20 min or so had a big bubble of water on it. But I didn't put any tuning slide grease, as it was new... maybe it needed it.
Arthur Magazu - thanks for the Piano comment though you mis-read the post because I didn't think that playing out of tune would tune my ear out of tune. Generally when Im practicing by myself I dont touch the tuning slide as it doesnt need to be in tune with anything... thanks for the idea, from now I will play it in tune when on my own which I didnt think about really. So the post you made was of good use.
Thanks for help.

An electronic tuner costs $20.
Of course, if you are being asked to "play along" with piano tuned "too low" - Yeeks!
If not having to use that piano....a tuner and/or a tuning fork is a good investment.
I'm assuming you tune your guitar by ear often, but sooner or later, you have to bring it "into real tune" with a tuner.
