Wonder if someone can help me.
I'm relatively new to pool ownership - we have an inground pool that we inherited when we bought the house last year.
But my daughter has seen a pool fountain online and is asking about it for christmas.(despite living in the UK and pool weather being a long way off!) They look great and at about £25 seem quite cheap BUT I'm not sure they will fit on to our pool.
Our water inlet/return line does not look the same as the ones I've seen on photos showing how these connect. Even though they all say, multi-attachment, will fit most pools etc. There is certainly no round hole with the water coming in.
What there is is a flap (excuse my terminology, as I say, I'm totally new to all this), where the water goes in and then the skimmer basket sits directly below that. Under the skimmer basket is a round hole where the water goes down. I fit a vacuum adapter attachment on top of the skimmer basket when I need to hoover.
The water seems to be coming in through a plate attached to the pool wall directly under the skimmer basket flap. This is a rectangular plate that is about 20cm by 5cm and has lots of little holes in it. I have no idea what this is called, sorry.
Can I still attach a basic fountain to my pool? Or is it all just a bit complicated?
Thanks very much!
