    Re: installing a hayward pump to 14ft x 48 intex ultra pool

    You have two ways to go: The first is to go look at the hard plumbing an intex pool threads here. That way you will replace all the **** Intex stuff with standard pool parts. It will be worth the work....trust me.

    Second, if you keep the Intex hoses, you will have to get some 1 1/2 inch hoses and and cut them into about 1/8 thick in order to make a spacer to connect the Intex hose to a standard 1 1/2 inch threaded PVC part.

    Done both and I can tell you hard plumbing and getting rid of the Intex hoses make my Intex pump into a real "pumper" of sorts. Just us a couple of lengths of flexible PVC so you have some flex around the pool.

    Welcome to tfp, pakkrfans

    Easiest way I know of is to use this:

    with this:
    Though this part will only work well if you have 1 1/4 inch hoses coming to it.

    The first fitting above slides over the black cuff and then you screw down the nut on it to "squeeze" the black cuff (you must have the poolside fitting on). The second fitting above screws onto the first fitting.

    If you are going to use for the hose to the pump? Post a picture if you want.

    all the hoses going into the pump and filter are installed with the hayward hoses which are 1 1/2 ....problem is we cant connect the hoses into the pool because the two openings are 1 1/4..........the intex pools have 2 rubber 1 1/4 spouts sticking out

    Re: installing a hayward pump to 14ft x 48 intex ultra pool

    I have rethought my advice to you. I would just use your 1.25" intex hoses and attach that to the 1.5" nipple on the pump end. They will expand enough to go over with a little heat and lubrication. This will get you by for at while.
