I am preparing my pool for the season and have my chemistry all in order, thanks to these forums. Anyhow, I have developed a leak in the plumbing on my pad right near my pump/filter and wanted to ask here before I went sawing off and replacing PVC fittings. Here is a link to a photo (hope this works!):

As you can probably see in the photo, the leak is in the left 90 degree elbow. Can I simply saw off both fittings on the vertical pipes and glue in replacement fittings? I suspect this is fine to do, but I wanted to ask before I did it just to make sure there wasn't some concern about the specific height (or some other concern) of those elbows.
Also, I just replace that pressure gauge on top of the filter and am noticing that it reads zero with the pump on. Do I need to do something specific to get it to work? Do I have a faulty gauge? Could the leak cause this?
Thanks in advance for all the advice and discussion here!
