    Re: Intex hose coupling

    I'm not exactly sure of your question but if you're asking about the threads on the Intex hoses I believe they are an odd size of maybe 40 mm. This may be helpful if you're wanting use Intex hoses with other standard size fittings.

    Re: Intex hose coupling

    I understand now but unfortunately don't have an answer. This seems to be a popular way to do what you're describing though.

    Re: Intex hose coupling

    thx for the help.i found out there is a thread here where someone cut of the part from the hose before it turns in too flex pvc and he said that it fits in a regular 1.5" coupling,so tomorrow i'm gonna check it out.

    if everything works out i will now have two outlet and two inlet.

    Sounds reasonable but I'm not sure regular pvc primer and glue will hold the hose to the pvc pipe. Possibly a two part plastic epoxy may work

    Re: Intex hose coupling

    i'll have to try it out,anyways it's just the part from the hose where the nut sits and not the whole hose,
