    Any idea where I would find a replacement flange nut for the old metal DE Persia Bailer?

    Open to new or used

    It's standard drain plumbing supply. I get them at a True Value
    hardware store.

    This De Persia flange nut was somewhat corroded, so this Snap-On six-point socket fit it. A new nut may require a slightly larger size.

    An Eastman 45041 plumber's set of sockets (eBay $8) should contain the 1-7/16ths socket you need. (The largest in the set).

    A handy set for plumbing jobs also—including replacing heating elements in water heaters. :)

    unfortunately, I have not been able find one at any of my local hardware stores including truevalue, ace, menards.


    Do you happen to know a part number?

    I'll go get a couple this week and mail one to you. I never have any luck
    finding things at the big-box stores. Usually Ace and True-Value seem to
    work best.

    If you go to: Freshwatersystems.com they have Brass Flange Nuts
    in a range of sizes. I can't remember but I think it was a 1/2" nut.
    I had my bailer with me when I went to the hardware store so
    I did not measure.
