I moved the filter and some pipes around my pool equipment in preparation for a storage shed/cover. I have an inline chlorinator as you can see in the attached picture. When I installed it, I mistakenly chose to attach it so close to that valve; it must have been my only option available a year ago. That valve on the left had an inch or so of pvc that I was able to glue to the connector.
I would like to move that chlorinator to another place in the piping, but, as you can see, I have no room at all to cut and reglue. The connector is female-threaded and it is screwed into the chlorinator. The chlorinator is tall and close to the ground, so I dont have the option to unscrew it.
Can anyone suggest a way to remove this chlorinator? I was thinking about cutting the connector VERY CAREFULLY with a small rotating saw so that I don't cut into the 1/2 inch of pipe that is is glued to on the left side of the picture. I could then perhaps chisel away the remaining bits of the connector so as to leave the pipe exposed.
Of course, I could cut through the chlorinator and get another one, but I would like to avoid that expense.
