Extra suction hole

Postby ljmesg » Sun 18 Mar, 2018 12:04

It's not attached to a skimmer. Just a suction hole with massive suction well under the water line. There are threads inside the pvc of the mouth of the hole.

I assume I can attach my vac hose here or install a topside skimmer or whatever.

My pool is larger. 2 skimmers, 4 out jets and this additional suction hole.

Thanks for any advice.

You should be able to attach a vacuum hose and vacuum your pool with it. There should be a valve to turn it off at the pad.
