    Pool Hoses Leaking, Going to attempt to hard plumb today hopefully

    Hi all,

    So over the past few days, I've had major complications with the regular old hoses that I've been using for several years now. For some reason, they just aren't fitting properly this year, as they have in the past. Not sure why.

    Anyway, after a good bit of research, it seems that hard plumbing is the way to go as it is more efficient, more attractive, and easier to maintain.

    Could someone experience provide some information on what type of pvc pipes, fittings, etc. I will need to complete this? As well as any advice.

    Is this something that I should be able to do in a day?

    Thanks,
    Jared
