    threads in wall for polaris hookup

    the guy that used to open and close my in ground pool messed up the threads in the
    fitting in the wall that I attach my Polaris cleaner.
    How do I replace the fitting in the wall?
    Gunite pool by the way.

    Thanks in advance, Phil

    Since it's a cement pond.
    You may be able to use a rambit to remove the old one and then glue a new one in.

    This happened to me. I carefully sawed from the inside of it just till I got to the walls. I had to do it in a few places. You have to be careful not to cut into the threads on the other side. It did come out and I did accidentally cut through some of the outer threads but the damage was minimal and a new one screwed in and holds fine.

    Thanks for the replies guys
    How does the threaded portion that the Polaris adaptor threads into get attached to the pool wall?

    Thanks again, Phil
