Research "Pex" or "shark bite" tubing/parts. I'm afraid of my stock filter leaking all over the electronics. For now I have a one gallon zip lock bag with 2" slits down the side seams. I'm able to put the filter inside the bag and still zip it up while the hose sticks out of the sides.

If I decide to keep it for future use I may end up getting one of those battery operated basement water sensors and throw it in the bag. If I decide to remove it permanently I can the bag will capture the leaking water when I unscrew it.

I looked at a 296 a little more than a year ago before deciding on something else. That may very well be the pump switch, but I seem to recall the switch for the LED floor lighting in about that area.

I never installed the water filter when I had my HW256. I just figured if one uses an outside filter then why bother. Also. how the heck can you replace it. Looked like a small specialty part that would be hard to find = expensive. I wish it was not even there. Takes more antifreeze to fill it up.

Yup it's the water pump, filled the water tank, turned faucet with little water, turned on switch, faucet water is powerful.
