Cool Busted Jandy Valve

I have a cracked jandy valve (it froze) on my inground pool. The cracked valve (two way) is connected to a second valve (three way) by about five inches of pvc piping. From looking at it, it looks like I would have to remove and replace both valves by cutting away the pvc piping and using unions just to replace both of them just to fix the damaged one. Can I unscrew the damaged one peel away the connections to the pvc piping and just repalce the valve? What is the most efficient way to fix it?

Jandy valves come in two sizes: 1 1/2" by 2" and 2" by 2 1/2". This means that it can be plumbed with 2 different sizes of pipe. The first dimension for instance, means that an 1 1/2" pipe will inside the valve and a 2" fitting (coupling, elbow, tee, etc.) will fit around the outside. This allows a valve to be replumbed even if you have to cut the pipe off right at the valve. You should be able to replace just the one valve and maybe just use one union.

Thank you. I thought so, but was unwilling to cut and find out I was wrong. Makes the job so much simpler.
