If you own a Pentair 86001800 1-Inch Nipple, you know how important it is to keep it in good working order. But if yours has gone bad, you may be wondering how to replace it.

Fortunately, it’s a fairly straightforward process. With the right tools and a little bit of know-how, you can replace your Pentair 86001800 1-Inch Nipple in no time.

Step 1

First, you’ll need to gather the necessary tools. You’ll need a pair of adjustable slip joint pliers, a Phillips screwdriver, a flathead screwdriver, and some pipe thread sealant. You may also want to have a pair of safety glasses and a flashlight on hand, in case you need to get a better look at the area you’re working on.

Step 2

Once you’ve got all your tools, the first step is to shut off the water supply to the Pentair 86001800 1-Inch Nipple. This is an important safety precaution and should not be skipped.

Step 3

Once the water is off, disassemble the old nipple using the adjustable slip joint pliers. Once it’s disassembled, use the flathead screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the old nipple in place. Then, unscrew the old nipple from the pipe.

Step 4

Next, you’ll need to get the new Pentair 86001800 1-Inch Nipple. Make sure it’s the right size and compatible with the existing pipes. Once you’ve got the right nipple, apply a generous amount of pipe thread sealant to the threads of the new nipple. This will help ensure a tight, leak-free fit.

Step 5

Next, use the adjustable slip joint pliers to attach the new nipple to the existing pipe. Once it’s secure, use the Phillips screwdriver to secure the nipple in place. Make sure you tighten it until it’s snug, but not too tight.

Step 6

Finally, turn the water supply back on and check for any leaks. If everything looks good, you’re done!

You’ve successfully replaced your Pentair 86001800 1-Inch Nipple. Just remember to always shut off the water supply beforehand and use the right sealant to ensure a tight, leak-free fit. With a little bit of time and effort, you can replace your Pentair 1-Inch Nipple and get it back in working order.
