I have just built a 15x24 AGP with a Hayward 1HP Extreme Cartridge filter. How can I connect 2 flexible 6ft hoses for my pump and filter? After my deck was built to wifey's measurements, I need at least 10 ft to connect my pump and filter to the skimmer and return. My local pool store sold me flexible PVC, but when I went to the hardware store they told my flexible PVC is too rigid to clamp. I purchased 2 additional 6ft flexible hoses with a pool hose connector but the connector seems to be flimsy. Can these be clamped? HELP!!!! Kids dying to get wet!
