    Inlet Eyeball Direction

    I have gone through all the posts for setting the direction of the eyeballs and the more i read the more confused I get. Can someone help me with how to adjust the inlet eyeballs in my specific set-up ?

    20x40 rectangle hopper pool
    Goes from 2.5 to 8.5 feet
    On the long sides of the pool near each corner there are three inlets with the skimmer on remaining side
    Skimmer is at the shallow end
    I have floor drains at the deep end

    Do I am them up/down and what specific direction ?

    20*40 Liner 2'-8' deep, Spill Over SPA, Electric Cover, Jandy Purelink (Aquapure & PDA), Hayward SP2610x15 (1.5HP Single Speed), Hayward H300 (Millavolt)

    Each pool is different and requires a certain amount of playing around with the aim. You should try to get the eyeballs aimed so that the water flows by the skimmer in a circular pattern. Aim some of the returns level and some toward the bottom.
