Broken/Cracked PVC Pipe: Short-Term Repair Help!

Postby SargassoC » Sat 16 Aug, 2008 12:09

Hi--

I cracked the PVC pipe leading to the strainer this morning and-- because it's the weekend-- no one can come to replace the pipe until Monday or Teusday. My question is can I apply PVC glue to the crack (I cannot cut and replace it however-- and maybe add plumber's tape?) and hope it holds for two or three days? I really need to shock the pool and run the filter, as we've had massive rain, on and off, for the past week. This is my last week of vacation and I don't want the pool to be too far gone by the time someone comes by to repair the pipe.
