Broken sprinkler pipe...
I have a 3/4 pvc pipe that broke right where it connects to the valve. What options do I have to repair the break? Will I need a new valve?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

In the link to a picture of my problem, the valve can be seen in the lower left, the crack runs about 6 inches right up to the crack.
Why would you need a new valve?
A coupling and threaded adapter and short chunk of pipe and done.
If you would like to save the valve you could use this tool to remove the bushing from the valve then replace the bushing and the pipe as needed.
How do I attach the coupling? The old one is glued in and the pipe is broken right up to the coupling.
Use the Ram-Bit to cut the pipe out of the valve. Then glue in your new fitting and pipe.
