    Venturi tee for aeration on external side of return fittings

    I'd like to add bubbles to my return jet for aeration but would prefer not to have plumbing in the pool. Does anyone know of any Venturi tees that fit on the external side of return fittings for AGPs? I found many Venturi tees but they all seem to have slip connections which could end up leaking at pressure. I'd like to find one with the proper MPT and FPT.

    Are you wanting to locate it inside or outside the pool?

    Not at all, I can see it working both ways. Oops, I apparently missed the part about 'no plumbing in the pool'. Sorry.

    What's wrong with slip connections? Every glued connection is a slip connection.

    I kind of just wanted to be able to unscrew the fittings and add the venturi to existing fittings without using glue.
