    Remove floor jet eye and replace

    I have a jet in the floor of the pool, in which the eye ball broke and need to be replaced. I can't turn it with a pipe wrench. Any ideas or special tools.

    A strap wrench usually works for that kind of thing.

    That is for removing the part of the ruturn fitting behind the eyeball. You would use that AFTER you get the eyeball out.

    Well that explains why I am confused!! Going to try a chain wrench to see if I can break it loose.
