I've got 3 returns on our inground pool which I believe are 1" diameter. They all point slightly sideways and pretty much horizontal. I'd like to point at least one of them slightly down to better circulate the deep end water. I know that it doesn't circulate that well down there because the bottom part of the deep end is lighter in color than the rest of the pool, I'm guessing a result from when I converted my swamp this spring with lots of liquid chlorine.
The problem is that there are no eyeballs and no threads. Are there any options for me, or should I just deal with what I have? The pool seems to stay pretty clean running the pump on low for 7 hours and on high 1 hour to run the sweep every day. I'm thinking with better circulation, I can run the pump fewer hours.
Also, there is some gunite slop in the pipes right where they enter the pool- any suggestions on the safest way to remove the excess without hurting the PVC pipes?
