    Help! I cant move the eye!

    I really hope someone can help me. I have AG vinyl pool, approx 10 years old. I have had normal replacements, liner, a pump, etc. My problem is that I can no longer move my eyeball to change the jet of water. I am scared to put to much force on it, that I might break it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

    I typically use the handle of a small screwdriver (with the pump off) insert it into the eye and carefully move it around to my desired position. I only do this when they wont move with just the force of my fingers

    I used a brass drift, since it fit snug in the eyeball. The extra 6" of leverage makes a world of difference. Even a wooden dowel will give you leverage.
