Thread: Port for Automatic Cleaner

    Port for Automatic Cleaner

    I have an 18 X 36 inground vinyl and have been using a Baracuda G3 which I have been pleased with except having to plug it into my skimmer (it skims a little but not enough while it's plugged in).
    There seems to be a port under the liner about 6 inches below and to the right of the skimmer and a pipe that is plugged stubbed out of my plumbing pad that goes to it. My question is how do I go about cutting out this outlet? Do I need to drain down below it?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    I'd proceed with caution. It was probably covered up because it didn't work for whatever reason.

    man you guys are to quick!

    I was hoping it might be common practice for pool builders to do this so it would be there if someone wanted to use it at a later date.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    Thanks for the quick reply
