Fixing cracked sprinkler pipes can be a challenge if you have fixed pipe ends on either side of the cracked pipe. The reason is in order to cement in a new pipe, at least one side of the pipe either the left or the right must be able to move away and open up a gap that is an inch or two in order to accommodate the new repair pipe section and it’s inline PVC pipe couple fitting. Then you pull the pipe back to cement into the cracked PVC pipe repair coupling. But if you have fixed ends blocked by sidewalks, or the cracked sprinkler pipe is too fragile to risk flexing it, you may be stuck.
