Currently my Hayward 1.5hp pump is connected to the return and skimmer by flex pipes. I didnt install this pool but whoever did cut corners on it. Over the last month my flex pipes have been cracking and leaking I assume from age and the stress thats put on them.
The other day I got everything I needed to hard pipe everything with 1 1/2 PVC. Well at least I thought I did.
I was going to start on the return first. I have a salt water system with the Turbocell T-5 which is pictured below. I noticed that it only has a connector where you can attach flex tube. I dont have anything that I can use that will allow me to use PVC. The issue is I have no idea what I need to buy so I can allow a connection to 1 1/2 PVC.
Can you guys help me out? Would one of you know what I need to get? Is this a custom piece that I need to get at a pool store? I would love if this is something I could by at lowes. I would love to get this done today. My flex pipes are a ticking time bomb right now.
