    Return Inlet Faceplate Broke Off Fiberglass Pool

    Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post.

    I have a fiberglass pool that has two return inlets. They are the type that have an eye-shaped center that fits in the middle of the donut shaped faceplate. The eyes are then used to control the direction of the water flow. One of the faceplates somehow broke off. I still have the broken faceplate and the eye-shaped center. I want to glue the faceplate back to its original position.

    Does anyone know what's the best type of adhesive to use? It's obviously going to be underwater, in a chlorinated environment, and I want to ensure whatever I use will hold.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    My apologies if my terminology is incorrect. If you need clarification, please ask. I've attached a few pictures to help.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Those parts are PVC so a PVC solvent cement migh work. A+B Putty might hold it also.
