    PVC to a Splash pool

    I'm setting up my new Splash pool and the pump and filter are about 10-15 feet away. I want to use pvc but can I attach the pvc pipe directly to the pool fittings or should I use a small length of hose to account for the flex in the pool sides?

    I have seen it done both ways. PVC has some flex to it, but if the pool wall is moving all the time it is better to use a section of hose.

    frogman_94,
    I used "hard-PVC" to "flex-PVC" to "hard-PVC" to pool. That way the flex-PVC absorbed the pool movement.

    I think the way I'm going to plumb it, I will be OK with pvc all the way. I'll snap a few pictures when I'm gone. Thanks.
