    Completed hard piping Intex pool (pics)

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this website who helped inspire me to upgrade my Intex 14X42 pool.
    Parts I used:
    Intex 2650 sand filter
    1.5" Intex Inlet and strainer
    Intex plunger valves
    Hayward 1091LX skimmer.

    My pool originally had the pump and hoses facing towards my deck, but I ran a new electrical outlet to the opposite side of the pool by my fence so you cannot see any hoses or equipment, I ran 1/2 PVC underground from the fence to under my deck where I had existing power.

    The skimmer was nerve racking to install, but it came out great, and no leaks.

    I now have a crystal clear pool.

    Thanks.
    Also forgot to mention I did make up the box adaptor connections to attach to the plunger valves, and to the pump.
    I did not use any unions, but in one location, below the skimmer, I did use no-hub coupling for easy removal. Also I think it adds a little cushioning and play for the skimmer to move a little when the pool is in use. I think if left rigid, it would put some strain on the liner with a lot of movement.
