    Need help my deck jet sunk

    Hey all, one of my 4 deck jets sunk down. If I run the jets this one is down too far and the stream of water hits the edge of concrete. Do you think if I tie some thin rope around the center of it I can pull it back into place? Also do you think the plumbing is messed up? Thank you for help.

    get like a piece of wire or chain.. with some type of rod at the end to make a "T", that can be slid into the deck jet hole. The pull up on it. Maybe get some kind of epoxy on the sides, to hold it back in place.

    Clearly there is nothing below the plumbing holding the jet in place ... so that is not good.

    JBlizzle, I hear ya on that. Do you think the back fill settled in that spot and the plumbing dropped?

    Hopefully that is all that happened and not a water leak shooting out and eroding the dirt under the plumbing.
    Although I am not sure how it could settle just under the plumbing, unless the installers did nothing to compact it.

    Re: Need help my deck jet sunk

    Well, now I'm not sure if it sunk or they just did a terrible job at install. I've never adjusted the direction of them until this week. That's when I found I was very limited on adjusting it due to it being so low. I got a slip knot around the nozzle base and couldn't get it to budge. Not even a little wiggle. I guess I will see what PB has to say. Thanks
