water level to below the return line and remove your existing pool return
fitting. Install the Aqua Luminator into the return opening, reattach the
hose and refill the pool. If you have solid plumbing on you
pool be sure and order the PVC adapter. The adapter glues to
the light housing and a 1 1/2" coupler glues to the adapter.
