    Leaky ball valve needs to be replaced

    Hi folks. Need some help here. Over winter, we developed a hair line crack in one of our pipes and ball valve. Wife ordered the replacement valve and wants ME to do the work. I am fine with making pvc connections, but I don't know how to fit it up because there appears to be no wiggle room to squeeze it in there. I tried to attach a photo, but received an error message that I would exceed some file size quota because I have already uploaded two photos for a previous question. I would appreciate some help on how to get the photo uploaded and some specific instructions on how to replace this valve. Otherwise, I'll be at the mercy of the not-so-local pool contractor.
    Thanks in advance.
