    Flat Return Lines

    Hey everyone,

    My pool doesn't have eyeball return lines. They are flat, and don't really give the pool any decent circulation. All of my surface debris gets trapped on the shallow end of the pool away from the skimmer which is on the deep end.

    Has anybody come up with this issue before? I don't believe the returns can be unscrewed and new ones put in. I'll get a pic of the return lines up soon.

    Thanks for any help!!

    I also have the same style. I had my pool remodel contractor put eyeball compression fittings in. They do not have a lot of adjustment though, so still limited circulation pattern.

    Hmm well I did purchase the Pool Skimmer, and it will arrive next week. My pool cleaner line is near the shallow end so hopefully that will help out.
