    Can I use a pop up rotating cleaner jet, as a regular return jet?

    Just wondering if I can plug one of these into my wall return jet... This way it would circulate the water better.

    I keep waiting for some kind of long term review.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    In theory, you could. You would have to glue in a fitting to accept the head and you would have to do it for all returns so the loop is pressurized

    I have the 'circulator', but it will stop rotating from time to time. The smallest speck or grit will jam it. A 'pop up' head seemed to be a good alternative if I could just screw one in...
