    small leak on new plumbing return side

    Hello all- I was hoping maybe for some insight or tips regarding a small leak on some new plumbing on the return side of my system. I installed a new valve to split off my bubbler line in order to supply a waterfall that I am having built. Off the valve that splits the bubbler and return jets, there is a 90 elbow directly connected and turned down. I installed another 90 elbow that directly connected to the elbow off the original valve. BIMG_1509.JPG I have attached a picture for review. The leak is coming from where the 2 elbows connect. There is virtually no room to cut out and replace without replacing a valve and lots of plumbing. I have read on here about possibly splitting a coupler in half and gluing over the leaking area, any idea if this will work?

    From the picture, the leak is between the 90 elbow with the "X" on it, and the elbow it directly connects to.

    I think I will try the rectorseal repair kit they sell at Home Depot. For 12 bucks I figure its worth a shot before cutting and replacing.
