    New pool - in-deck water feature missing...

    We purchased a new home and it has an in-ground pool (spec's below in my sig line). One of the water features it has is built into the side of the pool, above the waterline. When I turn the valve on, water gushes out of it, similar to a garden hose. It's flush with the wall, but the hole is threaded, as if it had some attachment on it. When I was a kid, we had a pool and I remember there being some sort of small white adapter that produced a canopy of water - like a rainbow across the pool. My guess is that is what was here at one time, but they either removed it, or it broke and they didn't replace it.

    Hopefully I'm making sense. Anyone know where I can find such a thing?

    My pool:
    89' perimeter, 15,150 gallons, depth: 3x5x4
    Hayward C5025 w/Hayward 2HP tri-star pump, 2" PVC piping
    Goldline Pro Logic P4 w/salt system and Aqua Pod wireless remote
    Magnasweep in-floor cleaning system
    Pebbletec Caribbean blue
    Grotto w/waterfall and rock slide
    Play-step w/water feature

    Sounds like a water deck jet. Google pool deck jet nozzle. You will have to know what diameter it is but that should be it.


    18x36 Grecian Vinyl; 8' Roman steps w/t 2 spa jets; cozy cove w/t 6 spa jets; 2 MD, 1 Skimmer, 3 returns; Hayward Ecostar, 30" Ranger sand filter; Hayward color logic 4.0 LED light; Hayward aqua logic; 2" PVC pipe 4 Jandy Valves

    Maybe my Google-fu is weak, but I can't find anything. It turns up the kind that go on top of the pool deck and shoot into the pool, or jets for spas, means for under the water-line.

    Ok - a bit more time and I think I found what I was referring to. Unfortunately, they don't offer details about the size of the fitting:

    I am pretty sure it would be the deck jet style if it is above the water line and not a return. They may be all the same size not for sure though. Is this something like what you have?

    What is missing is your aerator. There should be a valve you can turn off that looks like a water faucet control. A replacement can be purchased from your local pool store. The aerator looks like this:
