    Slide return replacement

    The returns on my slide are leaking from the backside. I've had this problem in the past and had been able to stop the leaks but now they have returned and now I've put myself in the spot where if I mange to remove them they will not go back on. The problem with them leaking is they are washing the dirt away from the bottom of the slide.

    Attached are older photos of the returns. Can anyone identify these parts, or suggest an alternate. The backside picture has a sticker for "Horizon spa and pool", but I can't seem to locate the part on their website.

    The return came with an eyeball, but I had removed that to lower the pressure coming out. I have also ground out the inside threads and the wrench ring (or whatever it's called) to reduce the splashing. Also, the backside of the jet now has two selves back to back from previous repairs, so I don't want to reuse it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TIA

    How about Spa Parts? Some of the "Spa Unions" here look like they might be something like what you need? or Spa Jets?

    Thanks.

    I've identified the part, it is sold as a high volume suction spa part from Hydro-air.

    http://www.allpartspoolandspa.com/store ... 4-470-5850

    That link shows the 90degree nut I need, I would need a different suction assembly. But most links I have found show the part as discontinued for for an outrageous price.

    Looks a lot like a spa jet. But without the air. You could plug up the air pipe in the link below?

    Probably, but it isn't the most elegant solution. I'm going to contact the company I bought the slide from and see what they are using now.

    Thanks
