Busted condensate drain trap

Just bought my first house. Have an Armstrong EG6E Ultra II 97 High Effecincy gas furnace.
Needed to clean the condensate pump because it was all slimed up. Pump was installed on the floor, very little clearance to pull pump out from between floors and PVC drain pipe. So I "encouraged" the PVC to give a little, and it gave a lot -- I brokethe PVC drain pipe where it connects to the PVC trap. I broke the nipple off of the trap, so I may need to replace the trap.
But I am having a horrible time trying to find a replacement trap for this. I can't find anything on the Internet. I believe it was a factory or installer pre-assembled trap -- has a fancy diagram sticker on it telling how to keep the trap topped off with water.
I put some 2-part expoxy on it and it's doing Ok as a temporary solution, but it's not super water tight (drips a little). And I'd like to find a better longterm solution that just glue.
Can anybody help me replace or fix this?
Thanks,
Chris

I have thought about calling a tech, but I want to do my research ahead of time.
Armstrong/Lennox got back to me and stated:
********** This is not a manufacturer supplied part. You will need to check with your service contractor.

If the manufacturer does not supply the part, then where will the service contractors get the part? Are they using something "off the shelf", making their own from PVC?
Thanks,
Chris

You have been told by the manufacturer and a master tech to call your local tech to come fix it.
Your "research" is done.

Well, look in the right places for it OR just use any manufacturers trap and hook it up with duct tape, bailing wire, hose clamps, rubber hose and silicone. We dont care what it looks like. We see that chit all the time. Bubba
