Rubber mallet.

Unless you see any screws it should just be set on the pipe and not glued.

Or you can cut the PVC pipe at the bottom of the old blower. Losing an inch of pipe will not make a difference.

The one-way valve is at the bottom right between two elbows. I didn't want to crack/damage anything so I wanted to be sure. I need to replace the valve too so I guess it doesn't matter. What holds the elbows/etc. in place? Or do you always need to cut?

If you need to replace the check valve then just cut it out down there and rebuild up.

Everything gets glued until you place the blower on top. The blower does not get glued to the pipe.

What check valve are you using?

Thanks. I was going to use the new one that came with the blower: Puri Tech (2HP/240V - Model: PRT2002403)
