Sea Swirl, how to remove top elbow

Is it glued on?. I know the bottom elbow can be removed but don't want to break the top one?

thanks,
Albert

I think it is glued. I tried gently to remove mine, but it didn't budge. Email them. They are pretty quick to respond

Thanks, I did email them. They said if it's less then 10 years old to just twist it. I was afraid to do that because if you twist the nozzle end it could break the teeth in the motor. Anyways, mine did budge and all is well.

Good to hear. I was afraid of breaking mine as well. Quite nerve racking

If I were to do this I would hold the bottom @ the same time.
