I got my TF-100 today. My CC is 2. I'd like to get started on a slam however, this part on my filter has a significant leak and running the pump non stop is resulting in leaked water dropping the waterline about an inch in a day. I found a replacement part on Amazon for between for 120 dollars. It seems futile to start slamming until this filter leak is taken care of.

Does anyone know if it would be wise to go ahead and order this part on the internet? The pool store has a price of $206 that will have to be ordered. If I do order it is it fairly simple to disassemble and reinstall this part?
