    intex replacement parts

    Broke my vacuum body yesterday, it has held up good for the 3 years that I've owned it. It was completely my fault instead of pulling the hose from the vacuum I bent it and it snapped off the rotating plastic hose connection and the teeth that held it on. The little teeth got caught up in the pre-filter basket on the pump so no damage to the pump. It was a additional purchase and did not come with my pool when I bought it. I found just the replacement body on Intex website for $6 plus $6 for shipping. Hopefully the ground shipping will be within decent time ill be ordering monday unless I find a alternative. I personally like the intex vacuum it has the brush head, with the debris bag. I would like a auto vac with a debris bag but all the ones I have found say they dont work with intex.

    Wife was questioning about a platform for our ladder. we have the ladder that came with the pool, its a 48" with no platform. on Intex website it lists a replacement platform for a 52" ladder. I'm questioning if this could be adapted to work with my 48" or if I would just have to buy the $68 52" ladder. the platform is only $15.

    yes you can use the platform for the taller ladder. I used a 52 in. ladder on my 48 in . had to drill new mounting holes, but it woked very well holes

    Do you think this platform would fit my 42" ladder? Or maybe I should just invest in a new, sturdier ladder.

    This is what I have now, the ladder that came with the pool. My kids and I are used to it, but it's kind of rickety.

    Yeah, that sounds like a better idea.
