    Summer Escapes pool with intex sand filter

    I wanted to upgrade our summer escapes pool (15x42) to the intex sand filter (sf15110) but cant figure out the setup.
    What would be the best way to modify the the fittings, without having to cut the pool to accept the new parts from intex.

    Welcome to the forum

    There is a lot of good info here: http://www.troublefreepool.com/usefu...rs-t29612.html

    And if you Google you can find adapters made to do just that.

    I think this might be the adapter you need.

    You'll also need the 1 1/4 inch hose clamps too, if you don't already have them.

    I was hoping Home Depot sold something similar to that.

    I used a 1 1/4' pipe that fit perfect on the pump and used a reducer to go to the 1 1/2 and the went up again to 2'.
