I am looking for some help to hopefully identify a source for this part. It is the friction fit flange from a Color Cascade LED bubbler (Pentair and KBK). In order to remove the bubbler you have to pry out this fitting and it is nearly impossible to do without breaking it. Pentair sells the entire nozzle kit (590048). I have tried Pentair, and they say, go talk to a dealer. I only have one local (part time) retail dealer and can't get a return call from him. I tried an online site and found that they can special order the kit for $70. This is ridiculous for a $5 piece of plastic. And I need three of them. I an hoping that this piece was not special made for this bubbler, and I can find the manufacturer. Of course, Pentair was no help in giving me this info. The company line is to go talk to a dealer. It has no markings on it. The neck fits into the PVC bubbler pipe (has a bulge that makes tight fit with inside of pipe). The flange sits flush with the top of the LED bubbler, and the inside of the neck accepts one of two little plastic nozzles (push in vertical and rotate into place).
I have searched all over for this. I am hoping it is just a standard eyeball type fitting that I can buy for a lot cheaper than the $70 Pentair kit price, and would appreciate any help if you have seen something like this.
