    Pool Skim Help

    I was wondering if anyone might know of a possible way to attach the Pool Skim to a straight recommended here:

    I have an older pool with slanted 1" diam return pipes....can I use the Polaris 1" stub pipe connection recommended by PoolSkim or do I need to have a pipe that return straight on perpendicular to the wall? Also, is it just as easy to find a pvc adapter that can transition a straght 1" pipe to a 1.5" threaded connection? I've looked but it seems none are made to insert which is what I need since the pipe in enclosed in the concrete wall. Thanks in advance for any comments or advice!

    This is my original post...
