How to Install a Solaxx Saltron Retro Jet RJ to an Aqualuminator Pool Light

In order to install your Retro Jet RJ to your Aqualuminator you will need a couple of additional plumbing fittings and some PVC glue.

Follow the directions that are included with the Aqualuminator pool light to install it directly to your pool wall. Tighten the Fitting Body so that the hose fitting of the Aqualuminator is facing the right (away from the thru-wall skimmer).

The two additional fittings you will need are a Hard Plumbing Adapter for Aqualuminator Light and a Lasco 1.5″ FPT X 1.5″ SKT (Female X Slip) Adapter.
