What are pool eyeballs?
Pool return jets (sometimes referred to as eyeballs) are those fun little things you’ll find on pool walls that shoot powerful streams of water into the pool. Many swimmers stand against them for a relaxing massage. They’re called return jets because of how the chain of circulation works in a pool.
How does PoolEye work?
When triggered by motion in the water, the PoolEye PE23 transmits an RF signal to activate a remote siren located inside the home. The alarm features a swim mode that temporarily disables the alarm while adults are swimming or supervising children in the pool.
Which way should the return jet point in an above ground pool?
It’s good practice to point your return jets in a direction that will circulate the water in your pool. If your pool only has one jet, point the jet toward the skimmer and downward. This will circulate the water, and push the water at the bottom of the pool to the surface.
Which way should pool returns face?
To give your swimming pool the best filtration you should point your return jet away from your skimmer and downward to get the best circulation and filtration. The top few inches of your pool is usually the dirtiest and for your pump to clean properly it is best to keep the water calm on the top of the water.
How many jets does a pool need?
A pool typically has two to three return jets where the water that filters through the circulation system returns to the pool. For effective circulation, it helps to have these multidirectional jets, because they allow you to determine the direction that the water returns to the pool.
Is it OK to swim without goggles?
Swimming without protecting your eyes from the water can result in redness and irritation. The reason redness and irritation occurs is due to the pH levels in the pool. If the pH is too high, the chlorine in the water won’t be able to disinfect properly and keep both the pool and the water clean.
Is it bad to open your eyes in the pool?
Infection-carrying bacteria spread rapidly when exposed to moisture. Opening your eyes under any type of water–chlorinated pool water, lake water, sea/ocean water–immediately puts your eyes at risk for suffering an infection due to water-borne pathogens.
What is a pool return?
Pool water returns are places in the pool where water comes back in from the circulation system. The return is usually a 1 1/2″ threaded opening that may have a directional eyeball that screws into it, (directional eyeballs are used to “aim” the water thereby enhancing proper water circulation within the pool).
