I am considering adding a dedicated vacuum port to our Intex when I plumb the new Hayward pump. I tried searching but haven't come up with much help.
My thought is to have a T at the inlet (stock inlet to pump- haven't mounted a through wall skimmer) to the pump and have the vacuum port come up over the wall. I will have a ball valve inline to shut it off.
Main question is do I have the vacuum inlet horizontal at the wall edge, or do I take it into the pool with another 90* and have the end just below the water line 1-2"? Not sure if we will ever add a auto vac or not if that matters.
If I go into the pool, I could use it for the pump to draw from along with the stock pump inlet, using the ball valve to fine tune the amount if needed so the Intex skimmer supplies most of the water.
Wasn't sure exactly where to post this, Pump Station, Cleaning, or here.
