    Leak at the 3-way valve

    So, fired the pump up today after the electrician came and rewired. Discovered that the 3way valve is leaking where the pipe is glued in. It had a minor drip last year that I wasn't worried about, but this year its worse, constant leak.

    Taking it apart won't work, as its the glued joint on solid abs pipe. Can I epoxy the connection?

    You can epoxy, but that probably won't last long. You can permanently re-plumb it using a socket saver or a pipe extender.

    Thanks Spishex! I didn't know that existed. Its a tight fit, but I may be able to get the socket saver in there.
