    Autofill Crossthreaded?

    Hi Everyone,

    The toilet style autofill that is on my pool recently started leaking and I am in the process of trying to replace it but I'm having a problem getting the old autofill out. The entire thing is at an angle in the bucket and I can only get it to turn a slight amount in either direction. Feeling down to the threads it definitely seems like the old until was crossthreaded and I'm looking for a safe way to remove the old unit and not cause any new damage to the threads. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    If you take the float off you will have more space...then just take it out and see what you are dealing with! Hopefully the pipe is just crooked.
