    Re: intex hose fitting

    The flexible part of the intex hoses are going to be hard to get to seal if you cut your hose to install a tee. I think I would take one of my hoses to a plumbing or hardware store and see if they have a tee and a PVC nipple that will fit in the end of the hose where it is smooth and will clamp properly. If so, I would buy a 14" sand filter interconnecting hose and 1.5m pump to pool hose. The 14" hose will reduce the amount of hosing you have laying around. I would attach it to the pump and put the tee down close to the ground. Don't forget to get the PVC shut off to connect to your fountain. Aeration raises pH and lowers water temp, so you may not want to run it all the time.

    I did this, and it works great so far. I use a venturi skimmer most of the time, and a fountain when we want one, because the fitting is a standard thread size.
