    First time opening a pool, need help

    I attempted to open my pool for the first time today, usually have a company open and close it but figured I would do it myself this year. Everything was going fine until i turned the pool filter on. Water had started coming out the return lines in the pool and then I noticed water was coming out of the heater rather steadily(from the inside). I'm attaching a picture of my filter/heater, anyone have any ideas? Also this piece was with all the plugs and baskets and I cant find where it goes, could it be why its leaking?

    I have no idea what the white plastic thing is.

    Take off the lower front cover of the heater. There is a pressure switch that the pool company that closed your pool may have unscrewed. Same thing happened to me last week when I opened.

    Look on your heater and get the make and model of the heater. Google that info with "parts list". You should get a schematic which shows you if that part belongs anywhere.

    the plastic thing I found out is a skimmer to main valve drain, but I still cant figure out where it goes. Hayward Valve, Skimmer To Main Drain Wg (sp1082gv) - INYOPools.com


    When I take off the lower cover to the heater I find a little knob that turns that says on and off but doesnt say what it is. I tried turning it of and on, neither helped
