EZ fix for PVC pin hole leak.....??

This is one inch PVC. Not much coming out..now. This is not the usual cut-off and glue in new piece. Threading fittings; glued fittings; elbows; close coupled pieces all going to a hose bibb.

After I shut off the water supply...is there a way to create a suction or vacuum in the line and apply primer and/or PVC glue...so it is sucked into the pin-hole and provide an easy fix ?

Thanks in advance

This is a pressure line not much you can do except replace. A piece of rubber (like a tire tube) under a clamp might hold it,

Years ago my youngest son bought mobile home where some yahoo had tried to patch the commode supply line with electrical tape and a hose clamp I had to rip out and replace the floor after replacing the failed plumbing.

Upon further reflection....I have decided to go traditional and cut out bad portion ...and replace.
Thanks for the replies.
