PVC repair


I've got a crack in my PVC pipe, and it is very close to (and even includes one of) several joining pieces. I don't think there is enough space to cut out the cracked section and patch it back together with new piping without replacing the entire section. Any ideas? I've attached a couple of pictures which may help...

You're right. Not enough room. Replace the entire section.

Rebuild it just like it is. Make sure you get the right kind of pipe. Appears to be 1" Schedule 40 PVC

Or duct tape. But really, I like this guy's idea better.
