Getting rid of water in fuel sensor

My water in fuel sensor is bad in my truck and has been for about a year. It might be solid for a week then go off or just flash on and off a lot. I drain my bowl about every month anyways, does anyone know where I can buy a plug or what size the plug is for the truck? Thanks.

Note that the WIF sensor is made to also hold in the Fuel Heater pass-through device, so a plug may not work in that case. Also the WIF circuit contains both a sensor (on the bowl) and a switch (solid-state, cubed shaped device in the engine wiring harness on top of the motor driver's side towards the front). Might need to determine which part is failing first. Cheers!
