    Replace return outlet in Pro Series

    I would like to replace the return outlet on my Pro Series Pool. I was curious if I could just by an Intex eyeball and make the replacement. I know that my return pipe is 1.5". The return outlet i am looking at says that it is also 1.5". so does it mean i can just take the one in my pool now out and add this one in its place?

    Welcome to TFP

    most intex stuff they use different fitting so I am not sure if it will work, you could always return it if it does not work

    Like cowboy said, you may have to purchase an adapter of some sort or retrofit it. Nothing too overly difficult.

    Consider the Intex sand filter combo. Sand filters are easier to maintain but do not filter as fine particles as the average cartridge filter although they will do their job wonderfully. They have a lower HP model for your size pool.

    There is a lower HP one as well. That one is good also. For your pool, the lower HP one would suffice.
