    Aerating the Intex pool

    I needed to lower my TA and jumping in the pool wasn't getting it done in regards to my aeration. So, for now here is my quick and dirty solution

    I removed the swivel eye return that comes with the pump and attached the blue adapter that comes with the vacuum (and with the Intex skimmer). Then slid on a 1-1/2" (I think) PVC elbow and a piece of PVC pipe that I had laying around.

    I'd attach something to make it shoot further, but the extra pressure makes the elbow slide off the nipple so this is it for now.
