    Return jets blowing air

    So I've noticed on my pool the return jets are blowing a lot of air.

    Yesterday, I looked at the pipe coming into the filter and the 90 degree elbow is cracked:



    I'm assuming I need to just replace this section of pipe correct? Looks like it's 2" pipe? It's an old Apollo DE-52 filter I believe. Anthony Pool Brass Multiport valve.

    That would probably be best (replacement). Some folks may try an epoxy product to get-by for a while, but ideally replacement would be the ultimate solution.

    Ditto Texas. Replumb it. It's a permanent fix and I would not be surprised if the male fitting was loose also.
