Hey guys, new to the whole pool thing (came with the house we bought). To make a long story short, I was seeing a good bit of sand in the discharge hole in the yard so I figured something was broken inside so I took the top off of the filter and the top elbow pipe was broken off at the threads and buried in the sand. I can get a new one for about $30, but can't figure how to get it to go on. I tried with the old broken one and the bottom pipe (which is exactly the same as the top one) interferes with turning the top one. Someone must know a trick how to do this...please HELP!
