I used a heat gun and the elbow came out of the poly pipe. I found a split in the elbow (not sure why after four years) and replaced it. So far, so good. Thanks for your responses.

Propane torch to heat it up. Not too much or you will damage the poly

I just had to do this about 10 minutes ago.
I'm under ideal conditions: office, all tools, workbench, etc.
Short story: I ended up cutting the poly pipe.

I don't have a heat gun and that might have made the difference.

Main line poly pipe repair

I have a leak where my main line (black poly pipe) is attached to a one inch grey elbow (part of the manifold) in the valve box. My question is; can I get the black poly pipe off of the barb fitting of the elbow or will I have to cut the poly pipe.
