    Re: Any clues?

    It appears to me to be some kind of alternative sanitizer stick (like Nature2 or something similar). The reason I made that guess is 1) the threads that could screw into a filter and 2) it appears to be sitting on top of a spa cover. But then again, I would expect a sanitizer stick to have some holes to 'release' the sanitizer...so hopefully someone can drop by with a definitive answer.

    Is there anything similar in your spa filter?

    On a side note, I noticed 'TBD' in your sig box for filter and spa. Do you mean you are waiting to decide what to buy, or you have not identified what you have? If it's the latter, you are welcome to post some pics and we can help you figure out what model they are!

    I just sat it on top of the spa cover. The spa came after we moved in, so it's got to be for the pool.

    Yeah, i'm behind on updating my filter. The spa is a '94 Hot Spring Sovereign in very good shape for its age.

    It's a gizzmo, used as freeze protection in your skimmer. Picture near the end, here : pool-school/visual_encyclopedia

    ^^^^^what he said^^^^^^^

    Put it in the Skimmer when closing the pool and there's no need to drain any water.

    Gizzmo's work great as well when re-plumbing your pad. If you cut the pipe below the water line it will keep the water from the skimmer line from flowing back and creating a mess (or from flooding the neighbor's yard as I found out the hard way!). The line from the floor drain? That's a whole 'nother challenge!

    AND, most importantly a TF100 Test Kit and a SpeedStir.
