Well here is the culprit... Probably going to use hydrualic hose to repair so it can flex a little and not break.

what diameter is the tube?

I have seen hyd rated compression adapter that use ferrules for steel line. have used them on ps setups with 100% results. seems a short piece of hose with those fittings would work if you have clearance. probably more elegant that welding on 2 fittings then using a piece of stubby hose.

The OD of the pipe is 1/2 inch. I like the sound of the compression adapters. We were just going to use some stainless steel hose clamps. We don't want to weld because we like the idea of giving it a little bit of flex.

The back end of that pipe just has an o-ring where it slips into the control valve. The rigidity of the pipe is the only thing that holds it in there under full system pressure. If you go with a rubber hose patch, remember it has to be solid enough to hold the rear end of the tube in place. A little too much flex and it will just blow the fitting back out of the valve under pressure.

(<-- father of the OP)

Yes, the break is so clean we figured that we would not trim the tube. that way any back pressure would be pipe-to-pipe.

I think we're going to go with the compression fittings with Hyd hose patch. I like the lateral flexibility that would introduce and keep a new ($150 O_O) pipe from breaking again.

i've personally used the 3/8 hyd compression fittings. i'm guessing 1/2 are available.

a buddy made me up some 8" hoses with orb fitting on one end and the comp fitting on the other.

worked good for a PS line replacement, unioning it with the existing hard line.
