Response to The high pressure line at the top of my hayward sand filter is leaking. The leak is located where the pvc pipe is joined into the filter control unit that sets at the top of the filter. I do not have unions in the 2 pipes that are attached to the filter control unit. If I cut the pvc pipe, can I then screw the pvc pipe out from the filter control unit? Will I need a new seal or o ring to stop the leak?
