Default PVC temporary fix..hot glue?

I just build my first PVC system, and I guess I didn't seat one of my joints tight enough so it has a small leak. I won't be able to get any more PVC till tomorrow so for a temporary fix I sanded the joint, dabbed a bit of PCV cement, wiped off the excess, then used hot glued around the whole joint. Anyone ever try this?

As for a real fix, I guess I have to cut off above the joint and redo everything?
