    Discharge hose

    We usually get a discharge hose from Leslie pool - works fine but is hard to stretch onto the filter output part. I was wondering if there was a better one out there that is easier to get on and stay on?

    Just plumb it with PVC. Much easier and it doesn't need to be buried deeply.

    If you want to use the hose, I'd suggest dipping the end in very hot water for a while before trying to install it.

    Yep and if you have one of those you should have one of these to keep it on.

    Thank you! I was missing the piece Richard320 posted and the blue plastic hose was too small to connect to filter. I've been using a smaller 4-5' hose and a kids slide to try and direct the discharge water away. it's quite the sight and honestly not working very well..... Adding these to my pool store list.....

    awesome thanks! definitely missing that $2 piece. We have the silver clamp - just have to try to stretch the discharge hose to get it on first but looks like that hose adapter will solve that!
