At the risk of being chewed on for padding my posts here's a couple of pics from a repair this past week. Picture #1 shows the crack in a 2" tee. The crack was caused by the pressure of roots from two coastal redwoods. For those that are not familiar with these trees they have two types of roots; large primary roots and millions of fibrous smaller roots. Picture #2 shows the creative pipefitting I finally settled on. There was no way that a tee was going to be slip-fixed or otherwise put back in. Too many roots and the three sections of pipe ended up on different horizontal planes from root pressure after the tee was cut out.
