Hello TFP, I could desperately use some insight from you.
I'm a reasonably new home owner who recently purchased an Intex 24'x12'x52" Ultra Frame pool (#28361EH) that came with a Sand Filter Pump (#128645) and I bought the upgraded filter salt system (#28679EG / ECO 20110).
After unpacking all of the boxes and setting up the pool, including watching the DVDs and online videos it became suddenly clear that I didn't have the proper parts to connect my filter system the way I was shown.
I've watched dozens of you tube videos now and even gone to the Intexstore and am unable to figure out what I need to do.
I was hoping from the pictures that one of you fine folks could point me in the right direction, suggest the parts I need to buy or something that gives me some hope on how to rectify the issue I have.
The filter has no suction power whatsoever due to the small hoses plus the split I think. I'm still becoming a DIYer but when it comes to this kind of stuff I'm very novice.
The first two pictures are my pool and the second set of pictures are from videos I watched on my pool. The filter appears to require 2 connections to the pool and I have 3 filter hose holes. I don't have any parts for converting one of the holes that I can see, beyond these little black plug things but only by themselves. Nothing that I can put them into and I don't see the converter parts indicated in the second pictures.
I apologize for this not being comprehensive to understand but I've tried to articulate as best I can.
Please and thank you in advance.
