    Pool cleaner w/ quick disconnect has broken pins

    Hi all!,

    I have a pool cleaner that connects to the wall with a quick disconnect connection.
    There are 2 pins that the quick disconnect hooks onto inside the socket on the wall of the pool.
    Those 2 pins have broken off I guess due to use/age.
    Can that outer receptacle be replaced easily...in other words does it screw off or something.

    To clarify, I am talking about replacing the female part that is in the wall of the pool.

    Thanks!

    1) 12,000 gallons
    2) DE filter
    3) In ground pool
    4) plaster
    5) 1.5hp pump
    Don't know flow of filter, but the DE Unit is 2ft diameter and about 3ft tall (kinda egg shaped).

    Actually, that part is for vacuum right? I need the one for pressure that has the pins on the inside to hold the hose on the connector.

    Thanks!


    I found it, it's the Hayward pool cleaner universal wall fitting. Thanks TFP & blakej!

    Hope this is ok to post, since its been awhile.

    New pool, previous owner i guess put in crooked, just recently noticed polaris didnt have pressure.
    The Adapter Fitting ''bung'' was cracked and bypassing flow.
    I bought new Adapter Fitting , when i tryined to unscrew from wall it just crumbled!
    I tryed picking at it for an hour in the rain, would not budge. What should i do? thoght about hacksaw blade but i do not want to damage further.

    The piece in the wall that Adapter Fitting screws into, if i damage that, whats the repair, to actually drain water, freaking drill out and replace then cement around? im terrified this will be the outcome.
    thanks for any suggestions!

    You're on the right track. Use a hacksaw blade to make a longitudinal score in the adapter until you get to the threads in the in-wall fitting. At that point you can usually use a screw driver to break it loose enough to get it out.

    Don't worry about buggering up the threads on the in-wall fitting, they can be cleaned up by scraping them out, then running a 1.5" pipe thread piece in, carefully, until the threads are clear.

    Next time start a new thread so it doesn't confuse people.
