    How do I get around this to remove sand or remove it without damaging laterals. It seems pretty solidly placed on there. Not sure if it's glued or how it's assembled

    That black piece should have lifted out with the valve leaving the white pipe sticking up exposed. Wiggle on it until it separates.
