I have the 14 foot round (4 feet deep) Intex Ultra Frame pool. This is my second year with it. As many have done, I upgraded to the 2500 g/hour pump. Of course this meant I had to cut bigger holes for the intake and outlet nozzles.
My question deals with the adjustable pool inlet nozzle. This is the one that has the moveable "eye." I hooked it up and turned on the pump and the water coming out was just crazy. It was spraying out the sides where it tightens around the threads. I tighten it up, I loosen it. Finally I removed the intex adjustable pool inlet nozzle and was examining it and the inside has this clear plastic ring that basically covers all of the holes on the nozzle except for the eye.
What is the purpose of this plastic ring? It is blocking the water flow and forcing the water to only come out of the eye and due to the pressure the water is also coming out around the threads.
