In response to Re: A/C PVC drain pipe leaking at elbow
: The A/C PVC pipe is leaking at the bottom elbow. Is there a way to seal the joint with cement or tape without taking it apart?

No practical way.
You don't take PVC apart. You cut off the leaking fittings and glue new couplings, pipe, and elbows on to replace it. As long as you can get at it, PVC is usualy quick easy and cheap to repair.
