Here's a pic of my flex pipe from my pump to filter:
That smaller segment between the pump and that fitting has a small hole in it squirting a small stream of water. I read somewhere on here that it's just best to replace them when that happens. How challenging would you say replacing that is to someone who hasn't done it before?
Is this all that needs to be done?
1. Turn off pump, open the basket lid to let pressure out. (or do I need to completely drain it?)
2. Unscrew fittings, take to hardware store to get a similar length piece and fittings, and some glue. (or reuse fittings?)
3. Glue, screw fittings together, and let sit for a day. (or shorter?)
4. Prime pump, fire it up.
I'd like to DIY it as this piece has been replaced every year I've had this pool. Getting tired of paying the pool guy top dollar to come repair what "seems" like a simple fix, but again I have never done it before, my plumbing experience is limited to garbage disposals and sink faucets / traps.
Or should I just call the pool store?
Thank you in advance for any advice!
