    Plumbing connection to filter cracked and spraying water

    Is this union threaded or glued? Do I need to cut the pipe and install the new fitting or is it screwed on? Friends coming tomorrow to get in the pool thumb.jpg

    The union nut is threaded. But to remove you need to cut pvc pipe, replace the union nut and reglue the pvc

    Thanks, is this part vendor specific (Jandy) or is it universal that I can buy anywhere? Also, can I use the sheer descent which bypasses the filter and uses a separate pump, to keep the water circulating in the meantime?
