    How to repair inlet/return jet on a fiberglass pool?

    Hello,
    Here are some pictures of a broken inlet on my fiberglass pool. One of the pictures is of some parts I was given to repair it. There is also some type of two part putty/epoxy that I am supposed to use for the repair. My question is do you think these parts will be sufficient to do the repair? How do I do it? To me it looks like a proper repair part would have threads to attach it to the pool. Any help is appreciated.

    Re: Broken inlet trying to repair

    Welcome to TFP!!

    They gave you the wrong faceplate & gasket (the faceplate and gasket you have are for a SP 1408 vinyl liner inlet/ outlet port!) This won't help you in the least

    Unfortunately, I don't know what return fittings they use on fiberglass pools \

    Hopefully, one of the other members will know about the fiberglass fittings (from the pics, it's NOT a SP 1023 AG fitting).

    I'll help as much as I can, but I've never installed/ plumbed a fiberglass pool

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
