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
