The problem is going to be the grey water pipe. Don't know of you can see it in this photo, but the end broke off in the 90-elbow it connected to. I've somehow got to figure out a way to replace this piece and the elbow, both of which are still glued to other pieces which I would like to salvage if possible.

I looks to me that one part(small length with the o-ring) was meant to be mated inside the tank, and the rest was glued on like normal pvc. Mabey that was meant to be a flex point. I do not know but wonder if that was supposed to allow for some movement less than what you did to it. Good luck with it but think on it before there is stink in it.

X2. They have them at our local Home Depot. You can abs glue a coupling to the small pipe to get it to the same diameter as the elbow, if you can't find a rubber coupling that necks down.

The rubber couplings will stretch enough to connect to the elbow. I would also smear some Gorilla glue on the inside of the coupler to make it slide easier. Just don't get it on your hands as it is extremely difficult to get it off skin.

X4 on the fernco for the smaller grey pipe.
You won't have to cut or remove any of the broken pipe still in the elbow.
As mentioned, if you can't find a reducing fernco, just cut the smaller pipe so a glued on coupler will match the elbow.
Just shove the whole thing back up to mate where it was originally and tighten the hose clamps on both sides of the fernco.
There's no pressure in the drain pipes so a fernco will work just fine.

They make a drill bit to drill out the inside of the fitting. If you have a friend who is a plumber he should have them. Really easy fix with that. A fernco will work to but if I had the drill bit I would use it.

Y'all rock! That's some good info there. The only thing I'm a little unsure about is whether there's enough of an extension on the elbow to secure the fernco clamp. I'll have to go outside and look. If that works, however, you couldn't ask for any easier!

They also make a 90 degree fernco. You could cut off the old 90 and replace it with a fernco.

Sorry to see your accident which can be fixed.
The bright side is your tanks were empty.

X2. 30 - 40, even 2 gallon of black tank contents spread by 20 gallon of gray water.... very lucky.
