    Hayward CL220 fittings needed

    I have a CL220 inline chlorinate that I only use when I am away on vacation. I normally just use liquid bleach, but need the automatic chlorinator to prevent algae when I am away.
    I need some replacement parts for the chlorinator and want to get the pool opened and pump running without it. To block off one of the fittings in the pipe, I usually just take one of the CLX220H compression nuts, use a 6" section of tubing in it folded over and ty-wrapped closed. Do they make a compression nut fitting that has no hole in it, just to cap off the line?
    In this picture, i want to replace the compression nut and hose with just a cap.
    Thanks in advance,
    James

    Hi James. Not sure if you found a remedy for this one yet, but I found the following thread that shows a pic in post #6 that may help you temporarily: Removing Hayward Offline Chlorinator - plugging holes. Hope it helps. Good luck!

    Thanks Pat, yea...I guess that would work even though I d not believe the plastic thread is 1/4 NPT. Enough t-tape would make it seal. It is only temporary, so it shouldn't hurt.

    Is there any reason you can't just cut a chunk of neoprene gasket material to stuff in that cap and screw it on tight? Shop Plumb Pak 6-in Rubber Washer at Lowes.com

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    No, the caps have an integrated ferrule in them, there is no room to stuff any sort of gasket inside. Thanks though.

    I'm putting a Stenner in, so I needed to block off my auto chlorinator tap. I bought a brass cap at Lowe's, used some teflon tape...it's held with no leaking (make sure to use the tape though or it will drip)
    Edit: I went back and read some posts- I did what Texas Splash linked to in a post above.
