    Finally made it back.
    I ordered and installed the three Hydrasweep jets. I had to remove two of them because they raised my pump pressure about 10 lbs.
    I can't tell any real change using the one.
    I'm just going to have to experiment with what I have and try to push the debris toward the skimmer.
    Thanks again for your interest.

    I'd take the other two and -- carefully -- use a Dremel tool, die grinder, wood rasp, or small coarse file to open the slot, till you achieve sufficient flow.

    To stabilize the work, you'll probably need to screw the jet into a 1.5" FIP adapter on a piece of 1.5" PVC pipe.

    I have rasps. I'll make that a weekend project.
