    how to yank out this eyeball? (pool return eyeball)

    20161008_160907.jpg

    closing the pool myself the first time...blowing out the lines, lowering the water level, etc...was the easy parts...
    this old pool return ..I couldn't figure it out..
    I tried turning it with pliers..it didn't give...is there a trick to this particular eyeball?
    I think it's a jacuzzi brand return from long ago....
    most instruction videos online shows returns that comes off easily...this one looks really different
    i believe the part with the three prongs holding the eyeball is threaded ..i kinda remember from last year's closing done by the pool guy...
    do i pull out the round circular cover around it first (didn't seem to come out)..or is there a trick to it?

    Welcome to the forum.

    While I'm not familiar with that style of eyeball, I thought I would 'bump' this thread to the top for more attention.

    Honestly, from that picture I don't think it's removable, but I guess you've personally seen it removed previously.
