      I have a hairline crack in a PVC elbow. What is the best way to fix it? Could I just put PVC glue over it?

      The best way is to go ahead and cut out the old elbo and repalce it, that will save you time and money in the long run

      You have to cut it out and replace it. The crack is due to stress and if you try any patch, the stess will break that also. And eventually the hairline crack will complete the circuit of the fitting and you will have a two piece elbow.
