Got a knock on the door this evening from a neighbor saying that water was running from our back yard into the street. I walked out into the back yard to notice that our filter was draining water from the drain hole on the bottom. Turns out that the drain plug broke, leaving the threaded section in the threads and the top part of it laying off to the side. A couple of pictures to let you see what I am talking about.
Here's a pic of just the broken section...
Here's a picture of me putting a caliper to the intact plug so as to get an idea of the dimensions that I am likely going to need to work with to remove the broken threaded section from the bottom of my filter.
The only way that I can think to remove the threaded ring from the drain hole is to find something that is reverse threaded and large enough to get a catch on the piece in order to crank it out of there. Can anyone think of something that I can use to remove it? What, if anything, is out there that is either reverse threaded or that can other wise grab the piece from the inside to wrench it out?
