Success, than DISASTER!!
So I popped off the quick disconnect on the filter. Put it in a bucket, but it didn't leak a drop.
Used the hair dryer on the hose, and success!! It slid on further, and the clamp tightened better!
Took a couple of minutes!!
Then, couldn't get the quick disconnect to sit properly in the filter to close it. Wouldn't go. Came upstairs, googled the problem, placed a call to the service department of the store where I bought it, left a message.
Went back downstairs, and the I had actually managed to open the disconnect enough to drain. The bottom of the stand was filling with water and leaking all over my basement floor!! Thank God I put the power bar on a raised box. Like an idiot, believing the valve to be still closed, I left it sitting loosely on the cannister, not in the bucket.
So i just used every towel in the house to soak up the water. Got most of it I think. Now all the towels are in the dryer. Once they're dried I'll go over everything again. CRAP!!!
That was my big fear, and I caused it by playing it safe. POOP!
