    I have a 3/4 pvc pipe that broke right where it connects to the valve. What options do I have to repair the break? Will I need a new valve?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Steve in Central Florida

    In the link to a picture of my problem, the valve can be seen in the lower left, the crack runs about 6 inches right up to the crack.

    Why would you need a new valve?

    A coupling and threaded adapter and short chunk of pipe and done.

    How do I attach the coupling? The old one is glued in and the pipe is broken right up to the coupling.

    Use the Ram-Bit to cut the pipe out of the valve. Then glue in your new fitting and pipe.
