Hello friends: This morning I heard a rattle in my piping next to the chorinator . I wonder if you guys know where this piece of hardware would come from that I took out. System is running without any leaks. The rod did not enter the chlorinator due to basket.
Al systems are Pentair. I looked at the diagram for the filter and pump and did not see any hardware like this.

I look at that and wonder if it would even be able to make the corner inside the plumbing elbows. Now is that a chlorinator that uses pucks or is it a saltwater chlorine generator I see?

After 5 years of membership, maybe you could fill out your signature? Please?

Thank you for the replies. Apologize for not having a signature.
My Heater is MiniMax 100.
What does the PoolValve assembly do? Heater is 10 years old. The pool has a salt water generator.

Thank you again. I love this site and propagate it among friends who have pools.

Looks like a thermal regulator.

I suspect that it fell apart and the parts went into the plumbing.

Do you have a picture of the heater where the water goes in and out?

I was wondering if this is the beginning of the end for this heater. As I've said, its about 10 years old.
I appreciate the advice.
Pool is 11000 gallons fiberglass pool.
