    Hard plumbing my agp

    Hi there. I have a 12' metal wall with a vinyl liner and I want to change from the standard flexi pipes to hard pvc pipe. I have just bought a sand filter and a 0.5hp pump and also looking at getting one of the intex swg (any good with hard plumbing?)

    I can just unscrew the hosetail off my skimmer and return and replace with some sort of proper adapter but just concerned about the swg.

    I would also like to add some sort of vacuum point into the plumbing somewhere, can this just be done by putting a t piece before the pump with a shut off valve that I just open to hoover?

    Anything else I need to consider?

    Why are you hard plumbing? Unless you have very long runs, it probably isn't worth the effort. But if you do, then the Intex pump is probably not up to the task.
