Think I can get a warranty on this? I swear I had my hands in my pockets and was just standing there when it happened.
Or maybe I could go with, the pump sucked it flat? lol

    Get the hammer out. If that doesn't fix it, it's obviously an electrical problem :smile:

    If you blow in the pipe hard enough with the valve closed, it should pop right back out. ;)

    I did the same thing in a blind spot on an 1 1/4" line a few years ago.

    I think your pump may be a tad oversized.

    They technically could send you a new joint if someone just took it off the assembly line. They have the technology, they can rebuild it to be better than it is.

    Harvey; Takes a big man to use his mistake as a teaching tool for all to see! Any chance of getting a replacement brass end for that flange or is it best used as a training tool/paper weight? Thanks!

    Yours, Larry
