Included with every PoolSkim is a fitting that connects to a 1&1/2 inch threaded outflow return jet -- the industry standard size for the majority of pools. However, for those pools that have either a 1 inch or 1&1/4 inch threaded inlet return, fitting adaptors are available.
The four pictures depict female and male threaded adaptors for fitting 1 and 1&1/4 inch returns. These parts can be inexpensively purchased at Home Depot -- two HD part numbers are listed under each picture. The top two parts in each picture join together, as shown in the bottom image.

The bottom picture shows pipe joint compound, which is needed only for the above 1" and 1&1/4" return fittings, and PVC pipe cement. Both are available from Home Depot.
These available fitting options will enable pool owners who do not have the industry standard 1&1/2 inch threaded outflow return jet to enjoy the PoolSkim benefits -- a hassle-free sparkling pool and more leisure time!
In rare instances where a extended length of PVC pipe is needed (longer than the PVC pipe included with the PoolSkim), go to special fittings for more information.
Important! If your inlet return is a 1 or 1&1/2 inch straight pipe (unthreaded, then you will need an adapter that will connect to the PoolSkim. One type of fitting that works well with the PoolSkim is made by Polaris
and can be found at Pool Center.
