Question about Pentair 2.0 Hp Whisperflo Pump
I am working on a friends pool. He has a Pentair Whisper Flo 2 HP pump. WFE-8. Whom ever install this slid the PVC pipe directly into the pump without a threaded fitting and it leaks. My question is 1) does this pump have a threaded fitting like every other I have seen. 2) If so, what is the best way to get this out, clean the threads (I figure they tried to glue it in) and get it working correctly again.
It's quite difficult for you to remove the glued part, you have to be extra careful in doing this, first of all you use a saw to cut of part of the pipe, then you can now gradually use a screw driver to peal off the remaining glued part to the machine. It's quite tedious and you have to be careful or else you damage the machine. If you think you can't do it, get a plumber around to do it..
