    First time pool owner

    Good Morning, this is my very first time attempting a forum like this.. I am in need of advice... The manual to install my dual suction pump is so confusing. My 26x52 intex pool has been a pain from the beginning. I now have it up and almost full, but need advice as to how to attach the rigid tubes to the rubber nipples they have sticking out of it.. If i tighten the hose clamps, it simply collapses on itself, not attaching properly. Am i suppose to feed the larger diameter tube into these rubber things?? HELP! I have an 8 yr old dying to go swimming, and my fiance is a disabled vet in need of water therapy!!

    Looks like they were given 2 blue rigid parts to put in from the inside of the pool wall to do what I need done. Guess I'll head to the hardware store to look. Thank you so much!

    OK, I figured out the filter. Now I need advice on whether I'm supposed to have a skimmer or not. They did not supply one with the pool, but I'm having issues getting my salt level correct because I don't have a skimmer. Help! Summer is almost over LOL
