I have an ABS 3x3x1.5 tee that has a crack on the top of the 1.5 side. I was wondering if I could use a filler to fix this or do I have to replace it? If I should replace it can I somehow get the joints apart? I took a couple of pics and attached if they help at all.
Thats ugly No filler will work on that!
What I would do is cut the 3x1.5 tee out and replace it. Cut about 6" away from the tee on all 3 sides and use an 1.5" abs coupling and 2, 3" no-hub couplings on the vertical pipe. The no-hub couplings will roll back on themselves so you can slide the tee into position.
Also, while the tee is out of the way, enlarge the topside of the 1.5" hole. I think it settled down and cracked your hub.
Thank you TheEplumber, I thought that was what was involved. Great suggestion about cutting out above the 1.5 tee, I didn't think about the stud settling but that is most likely what happened for sure. Don't know why they cut it so small. I had another leak downstairs at an elbow and after removing it found that the elbow wasn't formed properly when it was made so it had a small leak. Anyway thank you again for your time!
