How to Replace Pentair 154714 Bulkhead

If you have a Pentair 154714 bulkhead fitting in your pool or spa that needs to be replaced, don’t worry! Replacing this part is a relatively simple process that can be done with minimal tools. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps of replacing a bulkhead fitting, so you can get your pool or spa back up and running in no time.

Step 1

To start, you’ll need to turn off the power to your pool or spa at the breaker box. This is an important step for safety reasons and to prevent damage to your equipment.

Step 2

Once the power is off, you’ll need to locate the Pentair 154714 bulkhead fitting. This is usually located near the pool pump or filter, but can also be found in other locations if it isn’t near the pump or filter.

Step 3

Once you’ve located the bulkhead fitting, you’ll need to remove it. To do this, you’ll need to unscrew the nuts on the sides of the fitting and pull it out. Be sure to keep track of any washers or gaskets that are attached to the fitting, as you’ll need them when you install the new fitting.

Step 4

Now that the old fitting is removed, you can install the new one. Start by placing the new fitting in the same location as the old one and then attach the washers and gaskets. Make sure the washers and gaskets are secure and then begin to tighten the nuts with a wrench or pair of pliers.

Step 5

Once the new Pentair 154714 bulkhead fitting is installed, you can turn the power back on and test your pool or spa. If everything is working properly, you can enjoy your newly functioning pool or spa!


Replacing a Pentair 154714 bulkhead fitting might seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually a fairly straightforward process that doesn’t require any special tools or knowledge. Just remember to always turn off the power before beginning any repair work, and you’ll be up and running in no time.
