Holy Moly! $99???

Please consider Skippy's Cooling Fountain (link in my siggy line) $20 bucks, but could be even cheaper without the wall fitting we bought.

A little PVC, an hour of time... voila!

Looks good, does it cool the pool down?

However, My pool does not have that threaded wall return for the Polaris Universal Fitting Wall Collar. That is what I am trying to figure out. What is my solution?

What type of opening is your return? size? picture?
It is a 1 inch or 1.5 inch angled tube that is flush with the plaster. There is no threads or anything. Looks like a pvc tube.

Can I insert some smaller tube into the tube and give it a threaded opening? The problem I see is the tube is at an angle and not perpendicular with the plaster wall.
