Here is a tool I made to make it Super easy to remove and put back on the Volute from the Sicce PSK-2500 pump. I got the Idea from Jon Warner at Warner Marine Research.
Very easy to make out of 1.5" PVC T fitting.
I have done it two ways One just for the pump and the other is if you have a Venturi you need to clear.
#1 1.5" T and Volute

#2 Put the T on top of the Volute.

mark the T with a marker with the lines in the Volute. There will be three.

#4 Now cut the T at the marked lines about .5"

#5 you are done if you do not have a Venturi on it for protein skimmer.

#6 If you have a Venturi you will have to make a long hole so you can put it on with the Venturi. Just make sure your Venturi will be in the right spot.

I hope this helps you all out.

Well I broke my air pipe off my Volute. So I called Jon at Warner Marine to get a new pipe and after talking for some time we came up with this. It works great!! I put a little o-Ring lube on the O-Ring and it helps too.
