Filter inlet pipe blow off

Postby Vandercoon » Wed 25 Dec, 2019 22:00


My filter inlet pipe expanded, pressumably from heat, and blew off and water was gushing out everywhere, replacing the pipes will be easy but I'm wondering what caused it?

We had our gas heater going but unsure how it would heat up the pressure pipe enough to make it expand enough.

This is the pipe from the pump, to the salt filter that goes vertically then an elbow into the top of the salt pump, the pipe into the pump goes through the heater.

Is it a flexible pipe and was it clamped on?
