Hello, bran new to the forum. I nave read quite a bit, and most thread have links to other threads that have pics of a lot that Im not looking for lol. Im looking for the fitting to add a new inlet/outlet to the pool. Id imagine its something like a sandwich fitting but I couldnt find one at the pool store, hardwar store or online. Everybody just thinks I'm nuts.
Forgive me if Its there and I missed it but this pool ownership is turning into more than I bargained for.
I thought I was just gonna go buy a couple hundred dollar pool and cool off, yeah right.
So... I just recently set up my 42 tall 14 foot intex metal frame pool.
Today I bought the Sand filter, upgraded pump, the 2-2x20 solar mats and a saltwater kit.
My daughter is not even 2 years old yet but she really loves the water. She had an absolute field day in the pool while we were filling it and so we have decided to leave the pool only halfway full so she can touch the bottom. So currently I have the outlet and inlet hoses draped over the side and tied onto zip lock baggies full of sand to keep them submerged. Id like to have them attached to the inlet/outlets of the pool but the water level is too low.
Somebody please point me to the fitting I need or help me understand how to add a new outlet / inlet to the sidewall.
My other option is to build a toddler training platform , Ive seen them available but they are like another $400 I dont want to spend, I was going to build one out of pvc piping but don't have a good idea as to what to use for the actual walking platform. Thought maybe some canvas I could stretch tight and twine to the pvc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and forgive me if this has all been answered before.,
