a few days ago I noticed water pooling in the ceiling of my bathroom. I pulled away the drywall to find a PVC pipe venting to my roof had unseated itself from a 90 degree elbow.
After re-cementing the pipe to the elbow, there is still a very slow leak coming from the other end of the elbow. I've confirmed this isn't a roof leak as water is not dripping down onto the PVC itself.
Some additional details: it's a very tight space to access the pipe, I suppose I could pull down more drywall as an option, but I'd like to keep that to a minimum. So I feel as if I have two options:
- Use an epoxy putty around the leaking side of the 90 degree PVC elbow; or
- Replace the elbow with a long sweep elbow after cutting out the faulty elbow
If 2, given the fact that the pipe is connected to a fitting in my roof, I'm a little hesitant to use a hand saw. Luckily this pipe isn't used for pressurized water or the like.
Thanks in advance!
