I have dug up my skimmer to find that my pool was plumbed with flexible PVC. It has rigid 1/1/2" PVC coming out of the skimmer.
So I cut the flexible PVC off at its coupling. Now I'm trying to put a fitting on the end and I can not get it to fit. The fitting is 1.5" and the pipe is 1.5" but they will not go together. I have worked with PVC a lot but mostly smaller diameter...
Are there any tricks to getting the two pieces to fit together? I've already ruined a couple and I don't want the pipe to get too short.
Thanks for any help.
