    Want to Replace Cleaner Port With Return Eyeball

    Is this easily accomplished? I would like to be able to swap the cleaner port back in if my robot ever needs service. The cleaner is a Pentair Racer if it matters. The Pentair is okay, but I prefer to have an eyeball there.
    Thanks!

    I had a port that had an eyeball in it (because it looked like a return when they replastered). Turns out, it was a capped off line that I turned into a vacuum port.

    I just had to unscrew the eyeball from inside the port and screw in the adapter that the cleaner hose attaches too.

    But, yours sounds like a pressure cleaner, so it may be a different setup. If you have female threads inside the port, you just need to buy and eyeball and retaining ring and put it in.

    Okay, I will try to twist it out this weekend, thunderstorms permitting.
