    Leak behind return jet assembly

    Thanks Decoy205, that makes sense. I didn't know about the need to replace the gasket so often.

    Leak behind return jet assembly

    Hey everyone, I guess I'd just like to know how "involved" it is to replace the return jet assembly. Any advice here?

    Leak behind return jet assembly

    Dear all, firstly I wish everyone here a great upcoming pool season. Especially in the Northeast, as I know that in the South pools are already pretty hot. I'm just opening my above-ground pool and have unfortunately noticed a leak behind the return jet assembly. The pool must be 15 years old...
