    Output Jet Alternative

    Can't find the tread about changing out the output jet to get more water flow. Just recently upgraded the plumbing on my 15x42 and would like to change the output direction. Don't really like the one that came with the pool.

    I'm sure how to add an eyeball fitting is in the Intex thread, but basically you just buy an aboveground wall fitting and replace the original one with the new one. You have to cut the hole a little bigger, but no one that's reported doing it has haad any problems with it.
