My drain cap split in half and dang near emptied the pool into the backyard and flood my basement. Luckily I caught it and my sump pump handled the water.
My question now is this. I ordered a cap from pool center and it will come in 1-3 days, but what can I do in the meantime?
I think if I put some epoxy on the outside of the cap and let it harden, that it might stay good till the new one arrives. What do you guys think?
I am gonna look tommorrow after work to pickup some epoxy and start with that. Maybe it will allow my pump to run at least for a few hours each day till the cap arrives.
My other alternative is to call my local pool store 100 miles away and maybe they would have one? If they do, then I plan to drive there on Friday to pick it up. Worst case is that the pool would sit one or two days without running and get a little green till my part arrives.
Anyone have a better idea?
