Thanks to everyone on this forum I am confident this will be a great summer for enjoying my pool. I have ordered and anxiously awaiting delivery of my new filter, pump, and sag. I would like to hard plumb my equipment and was looking at the Hayward union fittings. However, I have no idea which ones to order. I would like to attach my pipes with a PVC nut, so I was looking for the threaded unions and not the slip connectors. My specific equipment follows.
* Hayward AquaTrol SWG - HP
* Hayward Pro-Series 24-Inch Top-Mount Sand Filter with 1-1/2-Inch Vari-Flo Valve
* Hayward Power-Flo Matrix 1 HP / 2-Speed
My return and skimmer already have male threaded connectors, and were previously connected to flexible PVC pipe with a PVC nut. However, the installer glued the PVC to the slip unions on the pump and filter which did not make it too easy for winter storage. Could anyone point me in the right direction and perhaps model numbers or a link to order the correct unions? I would greatly appreciate it. My pool is a 24' AG that is 52" deep. Thanks again for all the great advice.
