[attachment=26sf2wly]Aq-Whole.jpg[/attachment6sf2wly]Just received new 3 port cell kit yesterday. And unfortunately the Installation Manual was wrong when it said, 'The new cell will fit without any need to modify existing plumbing'. The space was exactly the same but the coupling nuts ARE NOT. The new ones are larger than the old 2 port nuts, so it doesn't "just screw on" - as described in the Install Manual.
So that means removing the old tailpieces to be able to install new LARGER coupling nuts (BUT one tailpiece is butted right up to the 90º connector) which is then connected (with no usable spaces) directly butted up to a Jandy valve (see photos).
The other end of the cell has a small amount of space I think I can use for the other tailpiece removal/replacement (see 2nd post photo below).
I've been in the forums for about 4 hours now and have the following 2 questions:
- One forum said you could cut the pipe off right at the connector and heat the glue to remove the inserted pipe
And another mentioned an over/under connector that glues on the outside of the connector.
What suggestions would you make?
