Hi all, still learning every day about the pool at a recently acquired home.

There is a plastic knob attached to an elbow along the 1.5" return line to the pool. What is this knob for? There is a wire in the middle of it. What is the purpose of this knob? My filter has a knob on top of the dome to bleed out air. Is this something similar? :?: :?: :?:

That is an electrical gland nut, it is probably from a temperature sensor.
