Tunze 9415 skimmer help.

Hoping to contact Roger.

I broke off the threaded nipple that the hydr foamer attaches to while servicing/cleaning the skimmer. Temporarily repaired using cyanoacrylate glue. Is there a way to replace that part?

Advice please.

Thanks.

On the body or the pump? Yes, but they are not easy, you essentially drill them out and glue in a replacement, I would need to check on getting the part.

Yes, the part attached to the body the pump threads on to.

I have that part, I have replaced one once and you need to remove the black plate to get good access inside, you need to save or replace the connector and T piece inside. The threaded fitting you will basically carefully sand out with a dremel and glue in the new one. We use Tangit at the factory, it is made by Henkel but to my knowledge they don't sell it in the US and because it is flammable, I can't import it. I would either use Testers model cement or PVC/ABS cement from the hardware store.
