So i have 2 return jets in my pool. They are original to the pool (20 years), the eyeball is gone, and they are quite deteriorated (most likely due to lack of pool water care over the years but is fixed now because of me and tfp). If you touch them, plastic dust and chunks come off.
So i went to remove them to replace them, but they do not have a ring that can be turned! I am unable to turn them no matter what i do. They also do not have any indentations in them for using a ruler or other removal tool.
Is it normal (20 years ago if you will) to glue returns in place?
Any suggestions how to get them out?
How do i know what jet/eyeball size should i buy?
If they are threaded, is there a standard for the thread sizing?
It looks like 1.5" pipe - is that a standard?
Thanks very much to anyone with any help on this!
