    Intex Pump upgrade with "Dual Suction Outlets" pool

    ANyone upgrade a pool from the 1000gph pump to 1500 or higher and have the "Dual Suction outlets"

    Basically, I have 2 outlets that go to a T connector before hitting the 1000gph pump...

    I bought the B hose adapters and plungers to upgrade to a 2500gph, but not sure how to actually connect everything....

    The manual only shows a 1inlet/1outlet configuration and has one page on the "Dual Suction" Setup....

    Looks like Intex makes a "T" style plunger for this setup, but I cannot find a P/N on it...

    Any help is appreciated.....

    Re: Intex Pump upgrade with "Dual Suction Outlets" pool

    I installed a 12 x 24 Intex Ultra Frame last year. Mine has the dual suction set-up. What you're looking for is listed on the parts list as:
    REF. NO. 33: SPLIT HOSE PLUNGER VALVE; Spare Part No. 11872.
    On my parts list, the same spare part number is listed for all four sizes of the rectangular Ultra Frame Pools that use the split suction set-up. You can go to the Intex web site and look at or download the owners manual for the "Rectangular Ultra Frame Pool" as well. The parts list I'm looking at is on page six.
    Hope this helps...

    Also, you don't use the b adapters. Just the 2 small hoses that connect to the dual valve. Then the larger tube to your pump just like it was new.

    Re: Intex Pump upgrade with "Dual Suction Outlets" pool

    Does anyone make a 3 way valve that supports 3 Intex 1.5" hoses? The only one I see on the Intex site (referenced above in this thread) has 2x1.25" and 1x1.5".

    I don't think so. I looked for the same with no luck.

    Hard pipe the two suctions into one and then connect using the Intex hose to the pump if needed.
