    Where can I find a replacement for this?

    Hi there fellow pool lovers!

    I have a very old (30+ years!) pentair-nautilus filter.

    A couple of weeks ago I noticed a crack on top housing of theh greeds.

    I went to my friendly pool supplier and they gave me a replacement.

    I've been trying to open the pool for a week and the water is not getting better.

    Last night I looked closely and discovered that the new housing has an extra hole. so it is not good.

    Anyone knows where can I get an exsact match for this old clunker.

    I include a picture so you know what I'm talking about.

    The new housing is black and I placed a marker showing the extra whole.

    I would apreciate any help you can provide.

    Cheers!

    I think that hole is for an air bleed which your filter doesn't have. I'd just plug the hole with silicone or epoxy and use it.

    Found a few on ebay, $75+ dollars.

    I would try plugging the hole with a stainless bolt, rubber grommets and a nut, if space allowed. If not, silicone or epoxy would probably work.
