    Connecting hard PVC to a ribbed Hose fitting

    Hey everybody - I'm new to the forum and lookingo an answer I'm sure someone has run into ...

    I was given a new DE filter and pump and both have the molded ribbed hose fittings on them (both inlet and outlet). I currently have it all "hosed" up to my pool, but would really like to install hard PVC pipe. The pool skimmer and pool return have female 1 1/2 threaded connections avail - but I'm not sure of the best way to attache the hard PVC to the ribbed fittings on the pump and filter. Suggestions?

    This is what I did on my molded skimmer box it is the hose fitting on the skimmer and a hose fitting on the end of the pvc pipe.

    I have a post in this thread that shows how I did mine since I also had the molded barbed fittings-
