    Oh no, it looks like you used flex pvc. Big problem. Small pool.

    On the good side it wont take long to fill... on the bad side, dude really needs a different swim suit if he wants to pick up any chicks.

    Flex PVC is all that lego offers right now, trying to figure out how to make the "pipe" off the front of the motor took more time than the rest of the plumbing

    I don't think the diving area is large enough. If someone gets hurt, they will own your piece of Legoland!

    I would recommend a cartridge filter. Installation is a snap...

    Once I get my order in I think I'll put tiny Hayward stickers on the pump and filter. I'll upload them after everything is built.
