I have the ultra 18 by 52" pool with dual ports going to the filter pump.
The sand filter has the drain port.. obviously when doing a backwash it just comes flooding out like a fire hydrant.
I'd like to connect this up to a garden hose.. and maybe bury the hose as well (or maybe not).. yeah i could use pvc (i've seen some mods that use this, but some of the details were missing i think) and try to make fittings but it seems like thats an accident of leaking waiting to happen and if buried i wouldnt know its leaking?
The intex pump has the non standard 1.5 inch hose i'm pretty sure..
I've seen a few adapters online that may work..
There is the intex 1.5 to push on 1.25 style.. which maybe using a clamp could be modded to then connect to a flexible pump hose then from there to a garden hose somehow? I think the standard thread on a garden hose is about 3/4"?
I see there is a pushon 27 footer 1.25" hose i could get.. if this pushes onto the intex adapter.. i guess having that as the only connector with a clamp would be ok, because i could see if there were leaks, though 27 feet is really not long enough, i'd need 4 of these to make it all the way to my drain to the sewer or more. Probably not the best idea to bury something that can "collapse" though. I guess this is where pvc connection would come in handy if i knew the right parts to get, parts that would be visible all the time for leaks and not buried
Thanks in advance
