    #11 Expandable Rubber Plug

    I've been looking for a #11 expandable rubber plug so I can clean my Aquarite Salt Cell. I live in the Fort Worth, TX area and I have checked Leslie's and Bonnie and Clyde's. Not only did they not have any, they didn't even know what I was talking about.

    Does anyone know another source?

    You can try a hardware store or a plumbing supply and see if they have one.

    If you strike out at the hardware/plumbing supply, try an auto parts store. Tell them you need an expandable freeze plug.

    Re: #11 Expandable Rubber Plug

    I found a test plug at Home Depot. It's not the same as the ones I've seen pictures of on pool supply web sites. It's plastic with a rubber ring that expands instead of a whole rubber plug. It doesn't seal completely, but it seals well enough to clean the cell. Thanks for your help.
