All kidding aside, as an electrician if you can separate the supply circuit to the UV and waterproof-insulate any cut or open wiring it should not be a problem. But when it comes to electrical repairs or modifications you either know exactly what you
are doing and why, or your placing this life at risk prematurely. If your not absolutely confident better have an electrician fix it especially if you and yours will be testing the live circuit with water involved using your bodies, which would really be stupid. Too bad you did not take extra time on your hands to use an eBay vendor and get auto buyer protection, you would have been guaranteed a replacement or money back by now.
No prob about the money (bank fixed everything
) When you pay with CC or DC you are also protected.
I know, I talked about to much time, but now I want to mod the filter myself... lol. But, if I don't mod the filter, it is for the trash...
and I always can use an extra filter.
I think I can cut the wire from outside the filter, but will have to use a multimeter and a solder Iron, for when I cut the wrong cord.
