    Removing Wet R Dry 725

    Is this even possible? Need to fix a suction side leak. We know where the leak is, so we will cut out the pipe that is causing problems (bad joint), but I need to keep the adaptor (grey pipe in picture).

    Curious if i can use sand paper or steel wool to clean pipe once we have it out....

    Thanks! I think i may be able to fit a 2 1/2 " collar around the end of the gray piece. Hoping to get a pump guy out in a few days.

    What does the grey tail piece connect to on the other end? Really hard to get the glue off and still salvage the piece. What are you actually trying to replace?

    The leak is at the connection point. The adaptor is because i have a metric size pump...

    So you want to cut between the tail piece and the street elbow? Once you do you won't be able to couple them back together. The street elbow won't allow you to adapt anything on the outside of it. Well at least I never tried that as it has some raised print on it so nothing would glue on it correctly.

    No. Can toss the elbow.

    The leak is where the grey connects to the white? If so, you could try just sealing it up with silicone.. It's hackish but your other options are to replace the adapter or buy a fitting saver tool to try and salvage the adapter...
