While they all look almost the same, pool return fittings and pool suction fittings each serve a distinct purpose for your pool.
- Suction Fittings - They cover up your pool’s suction lines to prevent entrapment (a person getting stuck due to water pressure suction on a suction pipe) and to block debris from entering the suction pipes
- Return Fittings - Also known as eyeballs or directional flow outlets, these direct the flow of returning water in your pool to ensure proper circulation on all parts of your pool.
- Air Injector Fittings - Typically used with spas, air injector fittings break up the air going to the spa to provide you with therapeutic air bubbles, making the spa experience much more relaxing.
Tip: When purchasing returns and suction fittings, always measure the pipe where you plan on using them. These fittings usually come in either 40mm size or 50mm size, while air injector fittings come in 25mm size.
