    PVC Drain and Water Fill


    After reading this site for a year, buying the CYA kit, TF-100 kit, it feels crazy that this is my first post!

    I'm having my pool rebuilt and I have a question on my 1" drain and 3/4" water fill pvc pipes. Prior the PVC would be almost flush with the tile, but now the tiler basically put it slightly behind the tiles and grouted it. My concern is the grout eroding (we fill it constantly due to the So Cal blazing hot sun!) and water eventually getting behind the tiles and causing all sorts of havoc.

    Are there any recommendations on PVC fittings (links would be helpful)? I'm looking for a fitting that I could use PVC glue to slide it in and having it line up flush with the face of the tile.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    It is pretty rare to find fittings that will slip into the PVC pipe. There are pipe extenders that will, but it might leave a pretty small hole.
