Question about Plumbing
I can't get my Aqua Pure water filter bottom part separated from the plastic head part; screws apart normally pretty easily using a plastic wrench that goes around the cylinder; never had problems with it before and done it 4-5 times. It's a plastic to plastic connection with o ring that is lubricated so I can't figure out what the problem is. I don't want to reef on it so hard I break a weld on the attached copper piping that is taking the force of the turning motion. Used a fair bit of force already. Is there some kind of penetrating spray that might help?
The pressure on the filter body needs to be relieved. Sometimes there is a red button on the top to do this. If not that then shut the water off to the filter and open a tap. This will relieve the pressure on the body.
This trick I have used on a number of times when I thought things would start to break. Remember when you go for it a slow, steady pressure on your wrenches.
Please rate this and Good Luck, Phil
