    Replacing bottom plate on Caretaker

    Does anyone know how hard it is to replace the bottom plate on a Caretaker? Is this DIY or I need a plumber or is it a pool service job? Any tips what to watch for?

    Thanks!

    I've installed ~ 30 of them but never had to replace the bottom plate. However, it's just simple PVC plumbing 8)

    All you have to do is cut all 5 lines at the same height and couple on to them and use 5, same length stubs if pipe to attach the new plate

    If you need any more on the 'How To', let me know
