I recently purchased a home with an older swimming pool, but with somewhat new stamped cement deck.
One of the three returns is leaking at the inlet, so I ended up running the pool this summer with the leaky inlet capped off. When I closed down the pool this week, I noticed the other two inlets have threads that are looking very tired, with lots of small cracks in them. The previous owner had tried to putty the one that I sealed off.
I am planning to replace the liner in the spring, so am starting to think about what I should replace or fix while I have the liner out.
Is it possible to remove the inlets from the inside of the pool, without needing to cut or dig under the cement deck?
I can envision cutting it out with a dremel tool or something, but then not sure how I would be able to connect and seal a new one?
Anyone have any suggestions?
