    How to remove this eyeball fitting?

    Hope someone can help, any idea's on how to remove this eyeball fitting? I'm wondering if there's a tool for the job as it looks like there are 2 holes top & bottom. The reason I want to remove it is to fit a slimebag to collect the fine stuff that goes right through the filter.. If it can't be removed easily, I was thinking of rigging up a hose to the backwash waste pipe and the other end to the slimebag in the pool. The idea being I could then vacuum to waste through the slimebag and save the water at the same time. Does this sound feasible?

    Cheers Martyn

    Just a little off the subject, but if visible debris is passing through your filter, there is a problem with your filter.

    Secondly, what many people assume is debris returning to the pool is actually dead algae settling to the pool floor.
