    I just found a PVC stub extractor at Home Depot. Will update if this works

    That extractor works very well on sprinker head pipe, etc, when they break off. I would think it would be able to bite on the pipe broken off and twist it right out.

    If that doesn't work try a large size easy-out bit like these

    just do not run the drill at a fast speed....easy is the key to success

    You can find these at Lowes or Home depot

    I was able to get the stub out of a Hayward filter for a friend using one.
