Located on the top of the filter and sometimes accompanied by a pressure gauge, the bleeder is opened to release air trapped in the filter.

When and why do I need to release air? After each back wash?

Release the air to keep a safer filter and for greater filter efficiency. Open the air bleeder also when removing the filter lid, to let the water drain down, out of the tank. After cleaning pump basket, or after backwashing or when starting up a dry filter, open up the air bleeder and let it spray until it is a steady stream of water

Where does this fit in the filter?

Air bleeders are usually on top of the filter tank, but most filters also have an internal air tube with air strainer that is used to suck air back into the pipes, sort of an automatic de-airing system

Need to replace this part in my filter. Any idea where I can locate this part

Air bleeders are ordered by particular filters, they are different by manufacturer. Order on your pool filter parts page

Where is the bleeder on the "Air Bleeder Assembly?"

I guess that is where the air bleeds out, or sprays out of the assembly
