    Pump Replacement Part

    I have a small leak in my pump and it looks like it's from a drain screw(?) that is broken.

    Would a local pool store or hardware store have a replacement or is this something I need to order online? The o-ring looks good.

    What's broken about the screw? You might try some teflon tape (about three wraps) if the screw is not broken.

    It's plastic and the first thread below the O ring is cracked.

    Yes, it's cracked and water is leaking from the pump.

    I went to my local Warehouse Pool supply but they didn't have one.
