My pump lost prime and went undetected long enough to cause damage from the heat. The outlet side has already been repaired. The pump itself is now working as expected, but the 3-way valve pre-pump is so distorted from the heat that it needs to be replaced along with the connection to the pump. The problem I am running into is that the plumbing is very tight. Here is a picture:
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to replace the 3-way valve based on this tight area? Also, is there a fitting that can be used to attached to the pump that will allow it to be unscrewed if work is needed on the pump in the future?
