Ok what I would like to do is have my original hoses run to a piece of pvc that would be attached to the leaf basket on my intex sand filter.
Im not sure what to get for pipe and fittings. I have a couple of old intex hoses I can use the ends off of if I need too.
I bought a 2 inch cover but it doesnt seem to be exactly the same as the intex 2 inch cover. It only threads on so far then locks up. It was for the backwash port on my sand filter.
So in short I want my sand filter hard plumbed but I want the flex of the original hoses so I would like to have 2 spots on the PVC coming off the sand pump that I can screw my skimmer and intake into.
I will try to find the time to do a paintshop illustration of what Im looking to do.
My budgets tight so I cant keep running to the hardware store and buying pieces that wont work, Like I have done all week lol.
