    DRAIN PLUG NO LONGER STAYS SECURE IN HAYWARD PUMP. PROBLEM IS INTERNAL THREADS ARE WORN DOWN.

    Hayward CL200 Automatic Chlorine Feeder O-Ring Needs Frequent Replacement

    First of all, yes I did do a search and found some old posts but thought I'd throw this out there again. My Hayward CL200 Automatic Chlorine Feeder needs its O-Ring replaced about 3 times a season. I live in NY, and have a 25,000 gallon inground. I've tried original Hayward rings, and...
