Backwash hose adapter broken!

Postby frc412 » Tue 20 Mar, 2018 18:53

Hi all- I am hoping someone may have some insight on this issue i have. I went to connect my backwash hose to the filter and saw that the piece it connects to is cracked. The piece ended up breaking off and now I cannot connect the backwash hose to it. Are there replacement parts for these? Im not even sure how I can take the adapter off to replace it. I have included a link to a photo that shows where it was cracked/broken off. Thanks in advance

I can't see to clearly but I can see a hexagon which is probably a threaded fitting which should unscrew from the body
Get some grips on it and unscrew anti clockwise
You can then take it to a pool store to match
