A PVC pipe got pulled out of its fitting under my shower (don't ask!). It's been pushed back into position, but is out of reach by hand and not tight (causing a slow-drip). Above the pipe is a shower tray and below is a ceiling of our lounge.
I'd like to tighten the fitting, but would need to extend my arm length by about 1-2ft to do it without tools :)
I have thought about fudging together a tool to attempt this - perhaps a metal grip with a length of copper piping on each arm to give me that extra reach. However I'm not sure if the grips will end up ruining the PVC compression fitting or if I'll even get enough purchase.
Last resorts seem to be to remove the shower tray above or cut a hole in the ceiling below for access; the first is a pain, the second would be unsightly and I'd like to avoid either if possible.
There must be a tool to give me that extra reach, does anyone have any ideas?
