My husband upgraded our pool to pvc fittings today and we got rid of the inferior intex plunge valves, etc. (Which, thanks to you guys was pretty easy since someone had already done the trial for us!)
Immediate results are that our 1 1/2 hp pump about sucked my hand off and our return is so much more than it ever was. My lil shark also moves much faster. I wish we'd done this 2 years ago when we upgraded the pump and filter. I didn't realize the difference it would make.
