    threaded directional nozzles, mine are missing

    pool came with the house
    got the swg up and running
    and am getting very close to getting all my numbers right

    anyways
    i do not have any jet nozzles on my outputs into the pool
    it just goes from the 1.5" pipe into the pool
    it is threaded like nozzles should be there

    but it does not feel like there is a great amount of water pressure coming out
    and i think maybe some water directioning owards the skimmer would be benificial

    is there any particular size i should be looking for as per the output hole?
    i see 3/8"
    1/2"
    3/4"
    1"

    anyone better then another?
    any reason to get them? any reason to stay without them?

    thank you

    Yeah, they help direct the circulation of your pool. You definitely need them. I would start with 3/4 inch. Note your psi before you put them on and then after. The smaller "eyeball" you use, the higher your psi will be. There is no "correct psi but you should probably be at least 10 and not much more than 20.

    well finally got around to measureing to double check

    having a brain fart
    i think i can talk my way threw it, but want to be sure

    i measured the threaded output and it is about 2"

    so is it a 1.5" threaded output i need
    as the threaded adapter glues over the 1.5" pipe it will be larger
    which could net me 2" at the threads

    correct?

    Correct! 1½".
    How many returns do you have. If it's two or less I'd go with 1" eyeballs. Just my personal choice.
