PVC Cap For Central Unit

The utility valve is a spring loaded door to allow a hose to be attached for cleaning. The PVC cap goes over the intake neck that is not being used to maintain a seal for proper suction. If that is what you need, then it might be available at the hardware store. Just be sure that the inside diameter is 2 inches for a proper seal.
