So today i started semi hard plumbing the pool.i found a adapter that uses the nuts that comes with the hoses.
The adapter lets you go directly to 2" pvc.
Now i have a thru the wall skimmer and a bottom drain hooked up to the pump and also 2 return goin back to the pool.
I also used the plunger valve for the bottom drain and for one of the return.
So far i just had some minor leaks where i used the adapter with the plungervalve,but i just put some teflon tape on the plungervalve fitting and so far no leaks.
