    Adjusting return eyeball

    I have some problems with my eyeballs (that is pool eyeballs) if I make them too tight they won't move if I make them too loose they eventually fall off. I want to snug them a little bit, but still be able to move them. I'm thinking about greasing them, but I'm not sure what type of grease is pool friendly? They are hayward and have 3 parts to them. Any suggestions?

    Safest bet is to grit your teeth and go to the pool store and buy a tube of pool lube. Otherwise go to a hardware store and ask for some silicon grease. Don't use a lot of either, just a film is enough.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
