    enlarging pump fitting holes

    Using sand pump filter but holes are not quite large enough. Is it OK to enlarge existing holes?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
