    Just a hunch that it is proprietary threads and may use an o-ring. So, you likely need to find an OEM replacement.

    Re: Missing Part

    can you explain what they all means...
    Also I can't run my pump with out it b/c it leaks out the bottom...it is the spigot looking shaft at very bottom of sand filter...How can I pump and circulate water until I get part?

    Google 'lowes pvc threaded cap' - maybe one of these would work.

    Look inside the filter basket. A lot of times plugs and things get put inside there so they don;t get lost over the winter.

    That is where we usually put everything...husband is actually the one that closed it down...but not in there is there a way we can still circulate pool water so it isn't just sitting water

    I guess I am not sure what filter you have and what part is missing. Picture?

    If you do not have a multi-valve that has a recirculate option, then you can not run the pump until the filter is plugged.
