As in the question from May 25 replaced drain plug and still will not tighten so female side must be stripped any other solutions besides replacing the housing?

A  Answered on 6/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gary. Unless you have a way to fix the threads, replacing the housing is the only other option.

My drain plug on my pool pump broke and the threads are stripped. What do you suggest I do? Can I just seal the drain hole for now?

Good Morning Adi, Is it on the basket or the valute? What style/model pump do you have. Can you send any pictures?

I think my Drain plug is leaking but only when the pump is shut off. 1. Do I need to put teflon tape around the new drain plug? 2. Could the threads be stripped on the inside of the pump housing it self?

A  Answered on 8/7/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Kelli, Teflon tape is not required because it has a gasket. The threads can be stripped if it's still leaking after it's been replaced. You can inspect the threads with your finger.

the 1/4" drain plug with gasket. is it a pipe thread size?

A  Answered on 7/31/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Don, The 1/4" Drain Plug with Gasket (SPX1700FG)  is pipe thread.

I went to open my pool today and this 1/4" drain plug is leaking and can't be tightened to stop the leak. Any suggestions if the female thread where this screws into is stripped? Thanks!

A  Answered on 6/3/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

If tightening hasn't stopped the leak, the gasket or the thread is probably bad on the drain plug. Replacing it is the only way to figure out if the drain plug is the problem.

where does this go on the filter.

A  Answered on 5/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Tom, The Drain Plug with Gasket is usually located in the rear or lower left/right side of the pump housing. For filter's it's located right above the sight glass on the multiport valve.

Drain Plug Damaged

Written on 3/12/2019 by Guest

The drain plug on my Hayward 1.5HP pump snapped off. I had to use a small sharp screwdriver to get a good grip on it and extract the old plug. Make sure you thread it with Teflon tape on the new plug.
