    Filter Unions

    Is there a way to tell if these parts are PVC or ABS?? They attach to my Hayward pool filter.

    I'll be connecting them to PVC plumbing so I need to know what they are made of so I use the correct type of cement.

    They're most likely ABS or CPVC, so just use multipurpose cement and you'll be fine.

    You could call Hayward and ask them if you really just want to know.

    For what it's worth, those appear to be ABS. We don't put that much carbon black into PVC.

    Hayward has indicated they are PVC.
