Ok, so this is starting to drive me a little mad, this is what has happened thus far. We bought a hose from walmart that was a 2inch, 35 ft hose and set out to find something that would fit into the white hose coming out of the basket (which I have a spare for) and fit onto the other end of my vacuum hose.
I ended up with this contraption thanks to the guys at True Value (I am not handy) . That did not work as I kept losing pressure because it wasn't airtight. Even after gluing it all with pvc pipe glue there was still air leaking and I couldn't get pressure.
So then I got this magical piece that actually worked . I had two wonderful vacuuming sessions where I had great pressure (as opposed to having the girlfriend hold the tube up to one of the two returns and getting very light pressure which is annoying for everyone).
But all good things end. Oddly it cracked in between uses somehow but now this hose is kaput as well and I'm starting over.
So I figured I should probably come here because you guys have always helped me out of a jam. I am using the 28651EG Intex Krystal Clear 3000 GPH Sand Filter Pump and am wondering if anyone has an easily repeatable solution (hose/piece combo) that will fit allow me to connect my vacuum hose (which I will have to buy now) to my spare white hose.
