Installed my new pump/filter with the Intex B adapters for the time being. I wanted to verify that the unit worked properly. I will however be installing the new wall connections just wanted to make sure the new pump wasnt brand new broken as I like to say. Hopefully the larger wall inlet/outlets will cure the problem of the pump losing prime when using the Intex wall skimmer, it seems to lose prime after a little while. but if just using the inlet as a main drain, no problems at all.
I assume that the losing prime problem will be worse when I attempt to use my Intex manual vacuum as it has a even smaller inlet on the screw on adapter for the wall inlet.
I have my outlines traced on the liner for the larger connections which I will do later today and then test the skimmer and vacuum again. if the losing prime still happens then I will prob drill some relief holes in the blue screw on adapter. I know that I will lose some suction to the skimmer and vacuum when doing this but if it allows the pump to keep primed im sure there will still be enough suction at the vaccum and skimmer. If the relief holes dont work then I will be forced to install a thru wall skimmer as well as a different vac set up.
