    PVC question

    The pool is drained and drying and we're looking ahead to next year! We have upgraded our pump/filter and added a skimmer to our pool and are now wondering about converting to PVC. (We have a scramble of flex hose right now.) Since our intex goes up and down each year, I am worried about the pool not being in the EXACT same place every year and the PVC not matching up correctly. Any experience with this? How much "play" is there with the PVC?

    Also, has there been one thread started about hard plumbing an intex pool? I've found lots of threads here and there, but wonder if it's been consolidated into a "how to" thread with the latest parts available. I know there are some real experts out there!

    still a work in progress...

    Use Flex PVC, it uses the same fittings and glue as regular PVC but is somewhat flexible.
