    Jacuzzi air intake have a special termination screen?

    Just had the pool replumbed and the jacuzzi air intake for the jets was upgraded to a 1 1/2" pipe running back to the pad. Previously I had a 1" pipe that just had a couple of 90* turns so the terminating pipe was aimed down and nothing else.

    Now that there is a 1 1/2" pipe, I'm more concerned about something possibly crawling in there to take a nap and clogging the pipe. Anyone have any ideas what is normally done to keep the critters out?

    thanks for any thoughts!

    Maybe a fitting plus some aluminum screening? Cut the screen to fit inside the fitting so that when the pipe and fitting are joined the screen is trapped in place.

    Use caution with the screen - it is sharp once cut!
