    Capping PVC pipes after pumps and filter are removed

    Hello
    I have a company close my built in pool. They duct tape the open PVC piping to prevent critters from getting in . Has anyone found PVC caps that can be screwed on for a neater look? Looks like my male thread pipe size is 2.75 and my female fitting are 3.5".
    Has anyone done this?

    Thanks
    Tom

    You can just use test plugs. They are rubber expanding plugs.

    And a pool supply will carry the large sizes?

    Those are BIG pipes. If the pool store doesn't carry the plugs check the hardware big box stores.
