I would like to use the pre-installed drain to supply water to a 1000g/hr intex pump to run my solar.
The new intex 637R pump I have uses new 1" hoses, a step down from 1.25" from previous years.
I was going to use the supplied fitting that screws into the drain (pic2) then add a inline shut off (pic1) then the garden hose.(not shown) (threading on the drain in the pool is very odd ball)
need ideas to go from the garden hose to the pump inlet hose or inlet itself. I have both 1" and 1.25" hoses at my disposal, along with the plastic reducing bushings that came with the 1.25" hoses.
The 3rd picture is something I found on the WEB pretty much doing the same thing but has no shut off. (I want a shut off)
Also having a little leakage with my output going in to my solar collector, ill take picture tomorrow showing where problem is, its a real frankenstein!
