    from what I have seen you just cap the ends and one end use a union connected to a pressure gauge and take everything to I think 25 PSI.. I have seen someone post a kit before that they used...

    here is a setup from a company

    Pool: Intex 16x32 15000 gal, 2 speed 340042, Pentair CC320 Filter, CircuPool SJ45 Salt System, Intermatic PE653RC; Hot Tub: 650 Gal SWG Megachlor

    So I used a tubeless stem in a cap and sealed off other ends. Pumped with air from compressor and brought it to 20 lbs. (checked with tire gauge). Checked about an hour later still at 20 lbs. a coupling is cheap compared to some of the stuff needed in that video. I have a 2" and a 1 1/2 that's on a male threaded for my jets. Problem solved
