Hope someone can help determine this replacement part for Hayward SwimClear filter C5025. Small tube connecting one of the return pipes to the pressure gauge assembly. Plastic screw in assembly to pressure gauge broke off. Assume it's an air relief tube or something pressure related but cannot find part on any Hayward diagram. Local Leslie's pool supply not helpful.

That's not an official part. It's just a jury-rigged tube to bleed off air out of the filter.

I would eliminate the tube. Just screw the pressure gauge directly into the threaded hole without the brass T.

If the filter is getting excessive air, then you have an air leak on the suction that needs to be fixed.

It's not ozone. Someone rigged it up to bleed air but I don't know why. Maybe there's a suction side air leak.

The tubing looks like it's from a Rainbow off-line tab feeder.
