My shopping options are True Value and that's it. Is this something I could find in a small hardware store like a True Value? I need recs for easily available pvc pipe fittings. Something that Old halfway(should be) retired Arkansas plumber is going to use to fix that leak...haha!!!!!!

The pvc slip couplings may be available at a True Value. It may be worth having them order a couple. It depends on how good of a selection they have on lawn sprinkler items.

Otherwise you file the stop out of the water pressure coupling and slid it back and forth on the pipe. It's a little tricky so have large pliers or wrenches available if you need to get it back off. We usually dig a hole about five foot along the pipe to give room to work. How deep are you? Doing two slip couplings at the same time can be very tricky. It would be worth ordering the slip coupling.

Are you the half retired plumber?

Funny! Oh no but that describes the man in this very small town that I was using for plumbing. Put it this way...He broke my new faucet he was installing because he wouldn't or couldn't read the directions and I had to drive 70 miles to Lowe's and get an exchange (thank goodness they exchanged it for me as it was $100!)Then I ended up installing it myself. In such a small town it's very difficult to get a plumber way out here so I'm forced to do my own repairs really. I went to the library and got a plumber's book and that's really shedding light on what you are talking about. I just didn't realize there were so many different fittings out there even at little old True Value. Thanks for your help. PS. 12 inches is the freeze line here.
