    Intex Pool Question - Hose Connections to Pool

    We have a 16' Intex metal frame pool. I think we're getting ready to start season #5. But our pool has the simple rubber holes in the liner for attaching the inlet / outlet hoses to the pump.

    Has anyone added the threaded connectors from the larger Intex pools? Maybe they cannot be purchased, I'm not sure.

    I'm asking because we've had a "big pool" Hayward pump and sand filter for the last 4 seasons that has worked great. But I can only find cheap plastic 1.25" hoses for attaching it to the pool. These cheap hoses are always springing leaks and needing to be replaced. I would like to find some better quality hoses, and after looking at some of the links, maybe an external skimmer as well.

    The hoses I have are just attached with a force fit and then clamped in place. The threaded versions, with the on/off valves, looks like a worthwhile upgrade. But I'm not sure how to integrate those with the type of liner holes I have.

    Any suggestions on how to modify these inlet/outlet parts of the pool would be appreciated. As well as a source for related hoses to attach to the pump!

    Thanks in advance,

    You can trim the holes to accept 1.5" fittings, then you will have an easier time finding the parts you need, be it hoses or hard pvc. Check the different links in Useful links for fellow intex pool owners. Several folks have posted instructions for adapting the pools.
