I know there is a bunch of threads on this but all I've found are products that are no longer carried by Lowes or Home Depot or the manufacturers have altered their designs (conduits, box adapters etc.).
So, I currently have the smaller 1.25" hoses and want to upgrade to 1.5" (40mm) Intex hoses or 1.5" PVC. I just don't know what adapters to use? I want to use ball valves and a Hayward skimmer, along with my Intex pump and Intex SWG. I'd prefer to use flexible hoses instead of all rigid PVC to account for pool movement.
This is a great link I found but I can't find the box adapter at Lowes or HD:

Anybody with updated info?
