Hi all,

Been to try sort a friends filter, the beads are gelled, any tips on how to get top off as it won't move! don't want to break anything.

thanks for your reply andi,

managed to get the top off and free the beads.

but for some reason the inlet pipe inside was laid in the bottom! its snapped off at the bottom black flange. it doesn't look like theres a nut for those black fittings(maybe factory fitted).

can you get those fittings?

gary
