What is this thing and is it useful?

Postby seaaggie » Fri 20 Jan, 2023 20:25


I've got an inground pool from the 80's and while replacing some plumbing i came across something I can't identify.

Going through the pvc pool return line is this rusty metal thingy. Is it a temperature sensor or sacrificial anode or what? Do I need to keep that section of pipe?

Certainly a pic would help greatly and if I can figure out how to include it i will.
