The ABS drain pipe that leads from the kitchen sink through to the basement has 2 vertical cracks in them which I'm guessing has been caused by the drastic change in temperature and lack of proper insulation from the previous owner. I've temorarily put water proof tape that runs vertically on the crack along with some support tape running horizontally to help keep the pipe together. As this may be my first attempt to do the repairs myself and am by no means a plumbing expert, I'm wondering what the best course of action will be to replace these two pipes and the elbow that attaches them both. The white residue on the upper pipe shows where the crack is in the middle of that pipe. See pictures for additional details. Any suggestions on how to fix or how I can reduce the cost from an expensive plumber would be helpful. Thanks!
