    Sediment release valve just broke.

    This is on my intex sand filter (in my signature).
    Any one know where to get a new one in a hurry? Would the pool supply store have one?
    Any way to plug it while I wait for a replacement?
    I hate to have my pump down for any length of time.
    Thanks!

    You can use a small marine plug from your local hardware store if you can find one to fit the hole.

    FWIW, I got 2nd day delivery directly from Intex. Rush cost $10 but it was worth it. I bought 2 just in case and sure enough the air release valve broke a couple weeks later.
