    Clean Clear Plus 420 to 240 Conversion

    The lid on our clean and clear plus 420 ruptured this past Sunday. After looking at prices for new lids we decided to convert our 420 to a 240. I ordered the new lid, filters, top manifold and bleeder tube.
    Does anyone know if the bleeder tube is glued into the bottom manifold? The old one from the 420 twisted out pretty easy, but, I thought that May have been because it was just loose from being used for 5 years.

    So for ~$80 you gave up half of your filter area. And it was a lot less if you really didn't have to have new cartridges. What's done is done, but I would have gone back with the 420 parts.

    I believe that the bleeder tube is an interference fit in the manifold and is not glued.
