My pipe broke. Can it be fixed?
The answer to this is that it depends. It depends on whether you know someone locally with the skill and willingness to fix it, and on how bad the break is. A clean break can often be easily repaired, while obviously if it's smashed to smithereens, forget it. How bad is too bad? Fixing broken glass really is almost an art in itself, that being said, if you can conceive in any way that it might possibly be able to be fixed, it probably could be. I have seen blowers work what I called 'miracles' with broken pieces I would have just laughed at and chucked. It really depends on the blower, and quite possibly what kind of mood he is in at the time ;-)
