Need help to determine inlet

Postby Jackooze » Tue 02 Jun, 2020 19:31

Hey guys, I’ve a new home/pool owner and ran Into a rodent issue that created leaks in several lines. All the plumbing lines have been dug up and I came across one line that was previously cracked and plugged off on the inside of the pool. I am trying to determine was this a return outlet or inlet for vacuum. Its placed in the middle of the pool roughly 4 ft from skimmer. I have two other returns one in the shallow and deep end.

So here is my question should I convert this outlet for return or vacuum?

Pool is 32x16 25,000 gal
Inground vinyl liner.
Pool build in 1980’s
One skimmer
Main drain
Two return outlets
One undetermined.

It’s at the same height as the other outlet

Probably an old return
I would have expected a vacuum port wouldbe higher
