I had a small drip on the drain cap on sand filter. Went to pool store and bought new cap and it came with white plastic piece that goes inside tank. He said to try cap first if that doesnt stop leak, unscrew white plastic screen and install new one.
Well when I unsrewed plastic screen sand started running out. tried to quickly install new screen and it is not all the way in yet . I assume the sand clogged threads and I cant get it in any further or out at this point !!
I am wondering if there is a tool because the pliers I used ( which the pool guy recommended ) kind of started breaking the interior pieces of screen . Any advice appreciated , thanks
