I have a 1" line that's not being used. I assume it was originally installed fro a cleaner, but its currently just capped off.
If I plumb this to the skimmer return at the pump, will the 1" line be suitable to run the cleaner and skimmer with my Pentair VS? I'm concerned with such a small line, I'm asking for trouble for getting obstructions of debris. However I was thinking an in-line leaf catcher in the hose should reduce this from happening.
Also, how does one install a cap, or removable cover for the sidewall port? I'm thinking of the safety side here, if the cleaner was not attached and the cleaner schedule came up with kids in the pool near the wall port.
