So, Intex gave me a filter with little or no instructions or fittings to attach a backwash hose to. The backwash hose we found was this flat rolled up hose that came with a couple hose clamps. I haven't even opened the package (so expensive too!).
Intex backwash outlet had a rubber compression type sleeve inside, it's threaded on the outside and these threads match the hose coupling nuts that are in use to attach to the equipment. It came with a cap, but not a compression nut.
No fittings are left to use to screw to the backwash outlet. I am a little stumped as to how I'm supposed to attach this backwash hose to the filter. How have others done it?
I'd let it flow out but I have a flower bed directly in the path of the outlet and it's salt water. I already doused the plants with backwash water once now (and myself, I'm still damp). I need to find some way to re-direct this water so they don't die. I stuffed the vacuum hose in and held it while backwashing, most of the water went elsewhere but the pressure was too much and it sprayed all over so that's not much of a solution either.
