JAL- pvc primer is acetone, and i was very surprised that it didn't do anything to the foam. don't know what MEK is.
speed- hmmm funny i didn't even think about the tourch, thanks. i'll try it in the morning.
between the returns, supplies and the air lines their are alot of pipes under those things, and their all encased in spray foam. i was kinda hoping for a way to disolve a little at a time as i work my way through them looking for cracks. the other option wich i've done on one side is to use a screw driver and slowly chip away at the foam.
thanks for the help guys

what i did on the upper left i have to do to the lower right, i'm thinking i should have stained the water in some way to make finding the cracks a little easier.

yeah tom i'm finding this out. i figured being in the trade it would be a piece of cake...wrong!!!. i wish i had the idea of the 4x4 horses before i thought i got all the leaks. now it's up on the deck on it's side again. i'm hoping that the flex pvc took the brunt of the expansion, i haven't found any cracked fittings yet, just the flex. i should have dyed the water first, that would have been a big help.
thanks for all the sugestions guys. i'm hoping to finish it this weekend.
