    What is this thing on the pool wall?

    We just bought a new house with an inground pool---I've had some friends come by and show me the basics, and I'm perusing the pool school stuff, but no one has been able to tell me much about this...This picture is of an item on the deeper end of the pool---I originally thought it was a broken light, but I now know that we have fiber optic lights, so that's not it. Someone mentioned it might be part of an older salt system, but I haven't been able to confirm...anyone here know what this is?

    Nope. Not me. Maybe someone will come along though.

    My best answer is a chupacabra.

    Man, I just don't know. Certainly the first one I've seen. Nothing to do with a salt generator.

    Is that a light behind it?

    Could it be some sort of attachment hook for pool game nets? Is there a spot across from this, perhaps this side wouldn't come out and they left it in?

    No idea ... a picture straight on might help to understand what we are looking at if you have a waterproof camera.

    I sent this pic to my pool builder. He had no idea what it was.

    Re: What is this thing on the pool wall?

    I did a little more researching, and it appears it may indeed be part of an old salt system...the salt control box is called "Pure & Clear", and looks to be marketed originally as a product called "Kreepy Kleer", which has now been discontinued by Kreepy Krauly...I found installation instructions, which line up with how it's positioned, and it looks like what I have is just a more decorative version of that in the pool...barring anyone who can determine otherwise, that's what I'm going with, and this thing is coming out next time I get in the pool (after disconnecting the power control system of course).
