    Best practice is to use the minimum number of fittings possible, as most leaks and failures
    occur at the fittings. There are times when there is no other way, but one should not abandon
    good practice ...

    Curious about what size the lines are that we're talking about. A 1/2 inch pvc pipe is really
    not that hard to flex into place, but a 2 inch pipe would be impossible.Also curious: did you
    turn off the...

    I should be OK for room as long as I can use those slip couplers that were mentioned.

    I've tried adding extra glue, RTV silicone, and the flex seal tape. None of them worked. And
    it's not a bad leak. Just a drip, drip, drip.Guess I'll just suck it up and replace the
    fitting.

    How far back from the T should I cut the pipes? Is there a way to ream out the old fitting so I
    only have to replace 1 pipe (the one that's leaking)? I'm thinking like a drill attachment that
    will cle...

    Fittings are usually a pretty tight fit. I'm having a hard time imagining sliding those slip
    couplings back and forth in order to glue them.

    Most PVC breaks occur at the elbows, and nothing short of a replacement is going to work for a
    pipe under pressure. Here is one of my elbows that broke and I have to demo out an entire
    concrete patio,...

    Make sure that the joints were actually cemented when they were installed. You could also try
    just slopping on more pvc cement on the dry joint, that may fix it. I wouldn't use expansion
    joints if you...

    We have a buried PVC line going to the garden. One of the "T" fittings has started to leak
    where one of the lines enters the fitting. It's not a geyser, just a steady fast drip. But it's
    enough to poo...

    That's an idea. Hopefully it won't be necessary.I stopped by a small motor repair place. The
    old-school kind with motors and junk laying all over the place. The guy pulled out a parts bin
    filled with ...
