All the return fittings I am seeing on youtube and here show 4 pieces... remove outer ring, eyeball comes out... unscrew eyeball housing and you are left with internal threads to screw a winter plug into.
Did my PB screw this up for me? The fittings he installed have an outer right and an eyeball, BUT, whet is left after they are removed is one piece... the fitting the eyeball fits in and the outer ring screws on to.. and it is glued into the PVC pipe... there are no inner threads on it. How does this get winterized? Is my only choice an expansion plug? The day they glued these in, they had them all done in a few minutes and I was pretty ****** that none of them sat flush with the gunite... 1/2 inch gaps on most all of them... and no way to redo it. Some I have seen on youtube actually have another wider flange beyond the first piece that screws off.
What are my options here... for interizing, and for making it look better next spring?
