    Where to buy pumping station pipes and fittings?

    I have some leaks in the pipes between my pump and Pentair Clean and Clear filter housing that is beyond repair and needs to be replaced. I cannot readily find the materials (pipes, fittings) at any local store and am wondering where can I order these parts. Attached please find photos of the plumbing in question from 3 different angles. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    I assume the pump fitting is screwed and not glues in the pump body and I don't have to replace the pump.

    It is all just sch 40 PVC pipe and fittings. I would be shocked if any hardware store did not have them.
    Although the unions at the filter might need to come from Pentair as they may be proprietary threads.

    Yikes! That's a mess. Common items except for that half-union at the filter which is easily ordered.

    Do you know what the threaded female reducer coming from the top of your filter gets hooked up to?

    Where to find the part number for the half-union? I couldn't locate it at Pentair Clean and Clear Plus web site.

    Please excuse my ignorance but I'm not sure I understand which female reducer you're inquiring about. There are two connections to the filter body, the top is intake coming from the pump and the bottom goes to something called Pool Frog Cycler and from there to the gas heater and onto the hot tub & pool. (picture attached).

    The union part numbers are in the manual toward the back in the parts diagram. If you don't have the manual they are available online on Pentair's website.
