In Response To: leaking joint (David)

they sell gook to patch pvc but it's much better to replace leaking section.first shut off water to location,cut out leaking section with a hack saw,take section to your local hardware store.They will give you parts,primer and pvc adhesive[read can]cut and assemble parts[dry run first,no glue]when every thing fits properly use primer[let it get tacky]apply adhesive[twist connections 1/4 turn and back to spread glue]hold connections in place for a few seconds til dry.give it 5 or 10 mins. and your ready to turn water back on
