    return jet

    I have a standard eyeball return jet (I beleive) and would like to add a T fitting at return jet (remove just eyeball) and relocate original jet to end of T fitting and add pipe down to bottom of pool with 90 degree fitting and add second jet inside of pool.
    My trouble is how to adapt to original return inside pool. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Should be just a standard 1.5 inch female connection. Unscrew what you have and take a gander at it. You could just buy a 1.5 threaded male adapter and come off of that with a T connection.

    The standard return jet uses 1½" pipe threads, so all you need is a 1½" Close Threaded Nipple, a 1½" Threaded Tee, a 1½" Threaded Male Adapter, a 1½" Female Threaded Elbow, some 1½" pipe and two (2) eyeball fittings and you should be good to go.

    Hi siebo,

    As Bama and woody said it is easy. I have an Intex pool but I did the exact same thing to my pool last year. Here is the link.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: return jet

    Was hoping that I could just remove nut that holds eyeball and remove eyeball and thread 1 1/2" pipe into it. Thanks for info and was kinda looking for a pic of the eyeball assy. as I didn't drain down and pool is not open yet. Trying to get things together before hand.

    You can do exactly that. Remove the eyeball assembly which includes the ball ring the eyeball itself and the holder that screws into the fitting. The fitting is 1½" female pipe threads.

    looked at my fitting and it does not look like center turns out. looks as it is all molded.

    can you show a picture? If you don't have the holder, someone might recognize what you do have...

    Re: return jet

    Does it have threads on the outside when you take the eyeball out?
