how to fix exterior sump pump pipe

Where our sump pump flushes water outside of our house the pipe comes out to a short elbow pipe that then flushes down into the ground through a larger pipe. Where the pipe goes from the elbow down to the ground has broken right up by the elbow. So where it was originally glued into the elbow is still in there but right outside the elbow is where it broke and nothing is left. So I'm not sure how to fix this. Any ideas? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

Since the pipe has broken off in the 90.... the 90 is no longer usable. Usually you would go inside and cut the pipe leading to outside. This would allow the 90 to be discarded.

You could then use a coupler to a new piece of pipe thru the wall to a new 90.

You would need to cut the outside pipe so that you could add a coupler and a short piece of pipe to it.
