    Default weather tight 3/4" plug for a plastic timer box

    Installed a new electronic pool timer and inadvertently knocked out the wrong side of the weather tight timer box. Are their plugs specifically designed for this application?

    Check a supply house. I doubt a home center will have them.

    That's exactly what I figured. Just didn't want to drive around San Jose unless I was sure. Also didn't want to revert to the universal repair, duct tape.

    I take a metal one, lather it with silicone and install it that way, in a pinch..

    quite watertight in no time.
