How To Setup The Return Jets In Your Pool

What Direction Should My Return Jets Face?

Though conventional wisdom usually has people thinking upwards to create ripples, pointing your return jets down and in a unified direction actually is preferred. 

Downward Return Jet Placement (GOOD)

  • Less Surface Area, Thus Shorter Skim Time
    Greater Water Turnover
  • Less Heat Loss
  • Less Evaporation
  • Less Chemical Burn Off

Upward Return Jet Placement (BAD)

  • More Surface Area, Thus Longer Skim Time
  • Less Water Turnover
  • More Heat Loss
  • More Evaporation
  • More Chemical Burn Off
