    Question Intex Plunger Valves - What's The Deal?

    Just received my intex pool yesterday and unlike my old bestway pool, it came with plunger valves..... Now I've heard both good and bad things about them.... Bad being the air leaks and cracking and not sealing.....

    My new pool has two intake valves that are just the plastic stumps.... I do plan to replace these as soon as I find the right parts here in Australia..... However, I have these from my bestway pool, which do fit....

    Not having any experience beyond the reports here, I agree that those would be better.
