I have a 14" Summer Escape ring pool that came with a small 1000 gph pump. Recently I purchased a Intex 2500 gph pump with all the attachments and the "required" adapters. Other than cutting a large hole in the side of my ring pool, I'm not seeing a great solution to attaching this nice strong pump to my ring pool. the adapters don't fit over the openings to my existing ring set pool. Anyone have a better more permanent idea how to connect all this up without cutting a bigger hole? we have considered using radiator hose and clamping it to the adapter and the existing small wall fitting but not sure how it will hold up over the summer. I would love not only suggestions but pictures as well. also the pump came with these nice strainers for both ends. can't figure out how to attach them to the smaller adapter either. thanks, any help would be appreciated.
