The base that my sand filter sits on has completely broken to pieces. The filter is now tipped and leaning into the side of my house and the PVC going into the filter is crooked (and probably gonna crack somewhere).
The pool store says I should just replace the whole filter since it's old (could be 15 years??).
I wondered if I could just cut and shorten the PVC, remove the last few pieces of the base and let the filter just sit on the cement pad below? What if I put some cinder blocks around to keep from tipping (though the PVC hold it there pretty well)? Thoughts?
