thanks. they had a pipe cutting machine at Home Depot, which I should have suspected. ANYWAY, it wont work. The way the piston is attached to the base mechanism it cannot come off. So it looks like I'll be using one of those repair kits that snap around the shaft.
If I cut the PVC length wise it will never be as strong.
>I'm thinking about placing some sort of pipe on the bottom of the chair that blocks it from sinking, but has anyone ever had success with this sort of approach? I'm happy to keep it at its highest height all the time.
Yes. This is one fix.
You can also use either a pipe clamp or a hose clamp. A pipe clamp is likely more suitable for this type of application due to the forces involved.
