Now that I have figured out how to keep my pool chemistry where it should be (thanks to this
forum), I would like to make a couple of modifications to my AGP.
I like crookm11's set up, but I need a little more information than I can garner from the great
pictures posted here and from all the posts...
1.) How did you connect the 4 way into the existing Intex thru wall? I took off the eyeball and screen
only to find that the 1.5" PVC is too big around to fit into the opening? Did you grind out the Intex
part and then cement in the 4 way? If so, how far in does the 4 way go? If not, what DID you do?
2.) Where did you get the eyeballs?
3.) I also have a 24'x52" Intex pool, but I'm not sure my holes are as far apart as yours...it's important
because I want to install a wide skimmer to replace the annoying over the wall that comes stock.
Assuming pictures are deceiving and both of our pools' holes are the same distance apart, did
you find the midpoint between the two ports and install your skimmer there? I assume you are
happy about the location of the skimmer? How does the location of the bottom of the skimmer
relate to the return? Or, how do I decide how far up the side of the pool to place the wide mouth
4.) I notice you have the regular intake and the skimmer both going into the pump and then you
have the modified return. Do you use the second intake for the vacuum or do you still use the
skimmer attachment to vacuum?
Additionally, I have the copper "gadget" in my SWG...couldn't I just remove that housing and plumb it with
PVC too? Right now, I have it disconnected.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide...
