Well I would try it but now that I put my pieces all back together the water came gushing from another pipe that was not on tight. I think I'm over my head. I really wanted to do this but I don't think I have the right tools or strength. I thank you all for your help. I don't know who she had work on this but they saw her coming. You all made my day.If it's clogged. It would overflow out of the auto vent, once you get the top part off.
