Switching pool pumps


I am switching a 21 year old whisper flow pump for a new one. The lines in and out are the same...2". I have enough room to cut booth PVC lines...and they seem to line up with the new pump. I have new 2" schedule 80 threaded fittings for the in/out lines. How do I do this without compromising the rest of the plumbing to the filter and heater...how do I glue both fittings at the same time without having to move the existing system?

That is what I am planning, but how do you this with the existing pipes? Do you have to glue both at the same time, and shove them together and hope?

No the union comes in 2 parts .. glue 1/2 the union on 1 pipe the other 1/2 of the union on the other... Do you not know how a union works?? Not trying to be a smart &&& just asking
