What is the best way to repair a small leak in a non-pressurized PVC drain pipe?
I have a slow (approximately 10 mL per 10 minute) leak in a PVC drain pipe. Cutting out and repairing the entire section would be extremely annoying, and I'd undoubtedly introduce another leak. Has anyone had success repairing a non-pressurized leak in PVC with caulk, or a specialty product such as http://plast-aid.com/ ? Specifically, could I just fill up the space between the reducing bushing and the coupling shown in the picture?
