I woke up this morning and had water leaking out of my pool heat pump. I
determined that the fitting that attaches the drain/discharge line to the
bottom of the heat exchanger had broken. I'm assuming this allows the unit
to be drained for the winter or something.
Anyway, the male end of the broken fitting is still lodged in the hole in
the heat exchanger. I don't have a tool that can grab it to unscrew it.
Does anyone know if something like this is available? Thanks in advance!

Well I would (and I don't recommend you or anyone else do this) using a
hacksaw blade cut through the inside of the fitting down to the threads
of the heater, careful not to damage them, and pry/twist the broken piece
out in one piece hopefully so you can try to match it up with something.
Have you any experience with PVC pipe installation/repair? If not you'll
need to get a plumber.
Thanks for the information. I don't have any experience at this. Someone
told me I might be able to use a stub extractor or a nipple extractor, but
the smallest one I could locate is 1/2 inch. That is still much larger than
the hole in the broken fitting.
