I have a PVC drain pipe from a tub that is leaking at the Y conection to the main drain pipe. It is in a very hard to reach spot (through an access panel) unless I tear out some ceiling underneath. My question is can I re-glue the joint without taking the pipes apart? Is there a way to "seal" the connection?
you could try to primer and glue the area, not the best option , but it might work, make sure you no exactly where the leak is, clean the area well with primer, then dob more glue on, i would wait ten minutes then repeat with more glue(do not repeat the primer).
I agree, adding glue is a shot in the dark. Replacement is best. If replacement is not an option that crazy loudmouth guy on tv sells some kind of epoxy stuff that might be an option. Still a long shot though.
