What is this apparatus called in "pool language?"

Referring to the set of black pipes connected the filter and with the handle on top. I see some hairline cracks on the union and am thinking about replacing it.

It's called a push-pull or slide valve. Can be used to backwash or bypass the filter.

Well, you have the push pull valve (the big black thing with the handle on top), the filter (r2d2 shaped thing) and plumbing.

That's a Pentair 263064 2" slide valve assembly to fit your Pentair filter.

There are many places that sell it. Amazon is one place although
I'm not pushing them at the current time due to their aggravating shipping times.

amazon/Pentair-263064-2-Inch-Slide-Backwash-valve-asst.
