Septic Tank Repair

We have a Septic filtration system outside. One of the yellow rings came off and i can't get the new one on. I think photos will better explain.

Those pipes are horribly misaligned. That needs to be fixed.

To reinstall the gasket (yellow ring) first remove the pipe. Then you can install the gasket into the housing. After it's in place you can shove the pipe through the center. It helps if you coat the pipe in soapy water to lubricate it.

Thank you for your reply Pilot Dane. Unfortunately the pipe comes out from the ground and can not be removed.
