PVC joint leak

Good morning. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix a leaking pvc joint, without replacing the whole thing? There are several parts and that would be very difficult. I thought I would try pluging the leak with more cement. Should I prime first? Any chance this will work? Thanks.

Assuming this is a drain with no pressure, you could try the cement but the results may not be good. I would prime the area and cut a piece of pvc to glue on as a kind of band aid to give some strength to the glue. You should replace the bad joint with new fittings. Another way would be to get some sheet rubber and hose clamps and wrap the area after putting some plumbers putty around the area if you cannot find a rubber no-hub coupling that would work, which is the next best thing to new pipe.
