    Connecting a Hayward return fitting to standard threaded pip

    I want to put a slime bag on the return line by unscrewing the eyeball fitting and connect a PVC pipe to the bag.

    Apparently the fitting is a non standard thread though. This has to be removed and apparently once removed you have access to the regular standard threads.

    This explains it a little better...

    According to that thread there's a special tool to remove it, but the op didn't provide a link, and of course the thread is from 2006.

    Does anyone know what tool I need for this?

    Thanks!

    Usually you can get it out with a strap wrench. Finding the correct tool is difficult. I have heard of people grinding down putty knives to the correct width so they fit the notches.

    That looks right.
