    Need help with connections!

    I have these two products
    image.jpg(Intex Surface Skimmer Replacement
    Strainer Hose Adapter)
    image.jpg(Haviland PA00061-HS30 Forge Loop Pool Hose 30 ft x 1 1/2 in)

    They are both approximately 1 1/2" diameter (a little less on inside, a little more on outside).

    I want to connect them to each other, and cannot for the life of me find a contraption to do this!

    Any ideas?

    Can you clarify a little? You're saying the hose is too small to fit over the adaptor nipple?

    If they're close to the same outside diameter, go buy a short chunk of rubber hose at the hardware store or auto parts store. Or make something by slicing a section out of a bicycle inner tube that can stretch over. If there's a bike shop in town, they probably have a whole bunch of thrashed tubes in the trash cans.

    Intex equipment is always a slightly different size than any other brand. Trying to mix Intex stuff with other brand equipment requires adapters.

    The hose has hose cuffs on both ends that we don't want to chop off. I found this YouTube video with the perfect part if anyone else has this issue: http://youtu.be/YfLnsQnt5mc
