Unscrew the short hose at the pump, screw short hose into coupler, screw short hose and coupler onto inlet hose, attach short hose back to pump. Easy, quick and will cost you .70 cents for the coupler and a little bit of Teflon tape.

Don't know how you accomplished it without twisting a hose then unless you disconnected a pipe.

Read above, I have a 2013 233S, maybe my filter system is different than others.

So you saved $1.74 less the price of the clamp.

IF, I ever remove my filter, which I doubt I ever do, I will use the plumbers way and use a union.

I cut the pex fittings off (they leaked after unscrewing from the filter) and used a sharkbite coupling.

I understand you unhooked the one hose from the pump, but how did you get the other hose unscrewed from the filter without turning the pex fittings?
