    Stripped threads on Hayward DE6000 at air relief valve?

    I have an older Hayward DE6000 that has stripped threads where the manual air relief valve and pressure gauge is located.
    Couple of questions?

    Whats the material of the filter body?
    Has anyone had any luck with gluing? J&B weld, Epoxy resigns and fillers West System is what I have used (Marine industry)

    What kind of materials are Pool Chemical tolerant, I know PVC and Stainless but about others Nylon brass copper,.

    Solutions
    Drill and tap a fitting into the existing hole
    Use a marine Thru-Hull Fitting with 1/4" three way, one to mount and the other for a pressure gauge and bleeder.

    Thanks in advance

    Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm leaning towards J&B weld and then tapping 1/4" pipe.

    Thanks again

    It looks like you can replace the Relief Valve/Gauge Adapter Assembly for about $20. Here's the part number DEX2400S. You'll also need the o-ring that goes under it.

    I wouldn't try repairing it for that amount.

    I have address the stripped threads on the housing and not the relief valve. I'm looking for info on the filter body.

    Any Ideas.

    If the threads in the filter top are stripped then your best bet is either another filter top or a bulkhead fitting through the hole if it won't interfere with anything inside the filter.
