Repairing leaking sprinkler pipe elbow


I have an in-ground sprinkler that has been leaking from below. Today I dug out around it, and found what looks like a cracked black pipe elbow. However, it doesn't look like any of the sprinkler piping parts I've found at the store so far. I'm not sure if I'm just looking for the wrong thing, or this is obsolete and not carried by the big box home improvement stores, or what.

I haven't removed it from the ground yet because I'm not sure how it comes off. I'm also a little bit hesitant to dig a lot more before figuring out if I can just get a drop-in replacement; if this is going to be a bigger project than that, I might ask my gardener to deal with it.

Any guidance on what the proper term for this is, and any tips on replacing it?

I have a picture, but apparently I'm not allowed to post pictures here yet. I'll try in a follow-up post...

Any chance that this system was installed by a commercial contractor?

Contractors use different tubing and connectors than is available at the BOX stores, so you might call a sprinkler installer for repairs.

Look up swing pipe fittings.
