    Is there some kind of vacuum hose adapter?

    I installed a dedicated vacuum line with a vac-lock fitting like this when I built our inground pool. I've got a basic vacuum head with a 1 1/2" vacuum hose. The hose fits fine into my skimmer, but it's too big for the vac-lock fitting. The vac-lock is 1 1/2" I.D. and the O.D of the hose is 1 3/4. Is there some kind of adapter I can get?

    Bump. I have the exact same problem. I stupidly measured the vacuum opening at 1.5", and ordered 1.5" hose, only to find the hose is way too big.

    I don't have any experience but I did some google searching and didn't find out squat. Hayward's website is worthless. All I found was in the Hayward Navigator manual that said you didn't use the skimmer cone adapter when you plug the hose into the vac lock. Are you guys using a different cleaner than the navigator?

    I have a hayward part # V093C. Its the cone adapter mentioned above. You can Bing that part # and see the part. It might get you on the right path. The one I have measures 1 1/2" ID on the small end and 2 1/16" ID on the big end. It's made of a soft rubber.

    I'm wondering if this thing will work:

    http://www.amazon.com/Hayward-AXV092...ayward+adapter

    If it's made to fit inside 1 1/2 hoses, then it should fit right? Looks like this:

    AZ, I found that adapter too. I guess for $5 I'll order one and give it a shot. I kind of wish there was a solution that would allow the locking tab of the vac-lock to still grab the hose like it's supposed to but hey.....if it works!
