    Pentair part name?

    I saw a Pentair part on YouTube. It holds the vacuum hose in the skimmer hole so it doesn't pop out when the pump turns off.
    Does anyone know the part name or number?
    Thanks

    If you could link the youtube video, that would help.

    This part that would likely screw into the bottom hole of your skimmer and allow you to attach the hose to the barbed end of the fitting might work?

    Found it. It's called a a Locking Bar.

    Philo, that is part of a system called the Vac Plus II. I don't think the locking bar alone will do much for you, as the bar is supposed to hold the Vac Plus cover on top of the skimmer basket. I am not sure on that though. I have a Vac Plus system but couldn't get it working with my setup.
