    Smile Cover for stair jet air intake?

    I just opened my vinyl in-ground pool myself - I had a service do it last year which was the first opening since I bought the house. The stairs have Hayward stair jets but the company that opened it last year left the air intake in the deck plugged. I'm pretty sure they assembled the jets wrong too. Anyway, I got everything assembled and working, but I didn't find any sort of cover for the air intake in the deck. I believe it is a 1.5" unthreaded tube. It seems odd to leave it open as it could fill with junk. Are there covers for such a thing? Tired googling but couldn't find anything...

    Can you make a sink or tub hair strainer fit? It might be time to go browsing the hardware store. Something like this, maybe? http://www.lowes.com/pd_473918-1366-10533_0__

    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!
