    Hi and Been awhile have problem hoping you guys tell me it's no big deal.

    as per my older post my pool at the time was not set up. well now it's up, Went to set up filter and ran pump and filter (was a proud moment for me) 20 min later I could of died. Filter has 6 very tiny stress fractures that I did not see when I was installing it. So needless to say hubby came home I was crying (yes I was so ) not a lot of money is sitting around and can buy new filter. So I pumped out water to small pool thank goodness I still had it up. Don't want to lose any more money at this point. I went to bed.

    While I was sleeping my beloved hubby does something I never thought he would do. he bought us a new filter and a used pump from a local guy he just droped it off this morning while I was at work.

    So no getting our money back on this. I have no idea what he paid he won't tell me Sorry getting off track

    it's a Jandy dual speed pump (used) I'm told it works just fine.

    And a New Hayward c3030.

    My question is both of these have 2" connections can I dial them down to 1 1/5" ??????????????

    Please someone give me some good news I don't have the heart to tell my hubby it's not going to work.

    ABSOLUTELY!!!! you can use PVC reducer fitting to attach to your 1.5" PVC plumbing.

    Sounds like the pump is a nice upgrade with the 2 speeds able to save money on power.
    Remember the new filter is now a cartridge and not a DE filter so the maintenance is a bit different.

    You should be able to adapt the pvc from 2 inch down to 1.5inch. Check the filter tho it may be built to accept both sizes of fittings.

    I bought a pair of these at Leslie's for $9 to hook up my aftermarket pump to my Intex pool. It was cheaper and easier than making my own from PVC from Lowe's.
