Client/family friend broke part of the PVC nub on the septic flow diversion valve for their drain field. (The nub used with the water shut-off wrench.) Since the nub is only partially broken off, I am considering trying to use some sort of strong epoxy filler to make an impression/adaptor for the remainder of the nub so I can turn that. Any ideas on what to use? I am thinking about putting some plastic over it, then a collar, so it's not stuck to it permanently, then packing it with epoxy filler. Doable? What would you use and what are my odds for success? Thanks.

Is it a "Bull Run" valve?
Depending on how much is busted off, you may still be able to operate it...But the best option is to replace it.

If the "Nub" has a screw in the center you may be able to replace only the piece on top and not have to re-plumb the device.

I've installed a few Bull Run valves...never busted one.
