    Thinking about hard plumbing my pool

    I have been thinking about hard plumbing my pool but I also have the fear of the hard PVC not allowing any flex. Has anyone had any problems with this.

    Thanks

    Could you please let us know what pool you have? It might be easier for others to advise if we knew what we are working with.

    Yes I guess it would, Sorry. It is a 16X48 intex ultra frame. I have seen that several have done this but It just seems as if it would need to flex.

    PVC pipe actually has some flex in it. It should have enough flex to handle your Intex pool. I had a 15' round Intex pool hard plumbed with no issues.
