    How to use suction-based vacuum with dual outlets?

    couldn't you just block one of the "outlets"(suction port) or valve one of them off ,just for vacuuming purposes.Did they perchance provide you with a t'd adapter(2 into 1) for vacuuming? Think Large sink stopper,rubber kind.Off white color,sometimes comes with small chain attached.

    Deck jets on an ABG

    Don't mind the mess. I used a 2.5" holesaw for the hole in the deck for the deck jet assembly.(very snug fit,didn't want deckjet assembly moving)a 2 9/16" holesaw would work well also.I use a dual stream nozzle. I used 1" pvc pipe and J hangers w/ a valve to turn jets on or off.(valve has...

    I'll be with in 40 min. of your general area sometime next week.Why stop at 1 I have 2 I think you should go for at least 4. They are easier to install than you think. Maybe I'll take pics,once you see how it's done it's a piece of cake.

    New Skimmer

    Half way up the skimmer or a little higher is fine,as long as your weir (small door in skimmer) still functions correctly.(keeps debris in the skimmer)
