Patch pvc


I have one of my gutter downspouts going into a PVC pipe, which is into a concrete slab.
That pvc pipe has a split in it. And rain comes out that split.
What can I patch that PVC pipe with
Thanks
Barry

See if you can find a repair coupling---those do not have a center stop and can be slipped over the pipe stub that is sticking out of the slab----

you may not find one in a retail store---a trip to a plumbing supply house might be needed---Mike-----

Can you get to it to just replace it. PVC is inexpensive and easy to splice.

Patch pvc


Actually a hack saw will be in my future. The 4in PVC will be cut level with the existing concrete, then Tuesday the stamped concrete will be poured over it, to bury it. I will put a couple of curved pieces to go into my wife's flower garden which is about 3 ft around the corner....problem solved

Reason why I'm doubg this, is because I tried to clean out the pvc, with plumbing tools and a shop vac, I can get as far as the elbow beneath the concrete and in about a foot, but then it's packed full of crap
