    Hard Plumbing a Pentair Clean and Clear filter

    Hello all,

    I have a Pentair Clean and Clear filter that I would like to hard plumb. Pentair calls the unions that come with the filter - body swivels. (Pentair part #79304600). I'm not sure what they are made of. This my be a silly question - but can I use PVC cement to attach my PVC pipe to it?

    Thanks, Joe

    Welcome to tfp, bigwave

    That looks like a slip fitting to me. You should be able to solvent bond to it like you would with any pvc/cpvc slip fitting.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Thanks. Was getting a little paranoid after reading about abs, dwv, etc fittings. I also just received an email from Pentair; its is a schedule 80 pvc fitting. Going to place and order from flex pvc and hopefully do some plumbing next week.

    That's my plan. No more hoses and clamps.

    If I would replace all my PVC plumbing with flex hose, would my water flow increase due to no 90 degree bends?
