I'm supposed to lube these joints/threads with petroleum jelly? Huh?? What part about petroleum being good for plastic did I miss?
Can I use the o-ring lube instead, or is it too sticky?
Intex doesn't provide much in the way of hosing. I am having a hard time finding a spot for the sand filter n pump unless I move the ladder yet again. I could use three times the amount of hose they included.
I should just stick it over the side and weigh the suction end down huh? What a PITA. If I didn't hate the dumb stock pumps so much I would not bother. Maybe I ought to just cut new holes in the other side. Would it be bad to cut an inlet near the bottom and return it around mid water level? This would leave the skimmer pump (1000gph) near the ladder nestled nicely out of the way.
My yard is tiny. argh!
