Pentair- Clean & Clear plus filter drain plug problem
I tried to drain my filter by opening the bottom drain plug. I tried turning, what I thought was the plug, and this cap like looking thing broke off exposing what is the plug.
The way my filter was installed, the plug facing the wall of my house, it is very hard to reach this plug.
I used channel lock pliers to grab a hold of the plastic
hex nut and was able to loosen plug and drain.
My question is, does anyone know if I can replace that
cheap plug with o-ring with some kind of plastic or metal
ball valve? Will I still need an o-ring if I use a male threaded ball valve with teflon tape?
It just seem's to me that there has to be an easier and better way than what Pentair has.
Any thoughts, suggestions, help from the experts would highly be appreciated.
