Hayward AquaNaut 200 400 & 450 Suction Inlet Medium Black Met (PVX990M-236)
The suction inlet medium (black met) is a replacement part that was made by Hayward. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
The suction Inlets were created to improve the suction capabilities for the AquaNaut series suction cleaners. Having 3 interchangeable throats that improve the suction depending on the type of pool and pool system you may have. This medium suction Inlet is the default throat that comes with the cleaner and is meant to fit almost all average-sized pools and filtration systems.
The inlet is black to match the color scheme of the suction cleaner and has an average-sized mouth intake. It can be found below the skirts and brackets (both front and rear) on the bottom end of the cleaner where it snaps into place and is labeled left and right so that way it can be correctly installed when removed.
