I recently got an Intex SWG for this years pool opening. I want to plumb it in with hard PVC.
The person that installed my pool (which I can't find now), used silicon and apparently some type of glue on the flexible PVC from the outlet of the sand filter to the return on the side of the AGP. With force to try and unscrew the fittings, they cracked so I just had to break and cut them off. Still part of the return is in the pool as I have to go get a smaller hack saw to finish getting it out.
So.... I'm not sure what to get to replace it. When I search for 'pool returns' I get either eyeball fittings or returns that have barbed or tapered hose attachments on the back for use with flexible hoses and clamps.
What type of return do I need to search for and any suggested places to order, for a replacement return that I can use screw on type return fittings and hard PVC?
Would Leslie's have anything like this? That is the only pool products store I know of, about 45 minutes away. I'd like to get it for this weekend but will wait if I have to order online.
