The plastic T section where the spigot screws in is broken. Any ideas how to replace it without dismantling the whole system? The right side goes into the house and left side down into the ground to sprinkler system.

I was thinking of cutting both vertical pipes below the T section, removing equal parts and gluing back with connection sleeves and new spigot connection. Just thought I will check here in case I am missing something obvious.

I would cut just below and above the T. Figure out how much you should cut from the other pipe, add a union, new T and call it a day.
