    Pool Hoses

    I currently have an above ground pool surrounded by a deck. I run the hoses under theck about 15 feet to the filter. Everything seems to be runnign correckly. I am using the cheap hoses that came with the pool, but one seems to have a very small leak. What is a good strong hose to run under a deck?

    Most people around here that have problems with the hoses go with either flexible PVC or hard PVC for the plumbing and get rid of the hoses all together. That would be my recommendation.

    Agreed, if you don't want to hard plumb buy flexible PVC, that stuff seems indestructible (costs a few bucks, where I live anyways)

    You'll use glued and threaded adapters to connect the equipment ot the piping.

    Your pump should have come with male/female ends for pump intake, filter outflow and skimmer/return, and metal clamps to tighten the hose to the ends.
    Get the flex PVC, cut to length, screw the ends into all the proper places (with plumbers tape or similar product) insert ends into the flex pvc and tighten with the metal clamps.
