Our sheer descent pipe snapped. It seems to be all one piece. Any ideas and proper part name to replace?

Thanks,
Chris

Can you post wider pics so we can see what it connects to on both sides.

Does the broken side connect to the pump below it?

Yes, the broken side goes to the dedicated sheer pump. The black piece (manifold?) snapped from the white standard pvc and its one piece. It was probably already reattached previously (before we owned)
Not sure if it’s repairable or not.

I think you should cut the manifold out below the three ball valves and replace the manifold from the pump with new diverter valves.

Here is another photo.
Ok so is “manifold” the correct name for this piece?
Thanks for help!!

A manifold is a pipe that branches into multiple pipes.

It does not look like the pipe cracked. It looks like the joint may have separated. Maybe it can be reglued .

Where does that left side piece run to?

Why do the pieces not line up?

Left side is to dedicated pump. It was lined up, just moved when it split (yes at the joint to manifold).
Equipment pad debris from the nasty wind storm…pool got the hammered with sand, dirt, leaves 🤦🏼‍♀️

I would cut out the manifold at the red lines and rebuild it with new diverter valves.
