Thread: Nut & bolt for Pentair tension ring

    Nut & bolt for Pentair tension ring

    I had a shorted light fixture, and not knowing a whole lot about them, had the pool company come out. They replaced the bulb re-assembled the light.

    It's working fine, but the pool company told me they didn't replace the nut and bolt on the tension ring. I'd expected them to be a bit pro-active - but now they tell me they're special parts, and will come back out and replace them, at a cost of $25 -$75 for their time, plus parts.

    Can't I just pick up a brass bolt, nut and washer and diy this?

    Usually the nut and bolt on the light ring last a long long time. Why do you think it needs to be replaced? As long as they replaced the gasket and you are not getting any water inside the light, you are good to go. If you feel compelled to replace them, then take them to your local hardware store and match them up with stainless steel ones.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.

    Thanks. I was going to let it be. I just wanted to make sure that if/when it fails again I use the right types of parts.
