Thread: adding extra strainer and flow valve s to agp.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    adding extra strainer and flow valve s to agp.

    I'd like to add an extra set of strainer and flow valves to my intex pool. do I need to reinforce the holes prior to putting the valves on?
    I have a separate pump that runs my solar panels. I'd like to keep the two systems separate.
    Thank you

    I would reinforce before adding them. You could probably use a patch kit to add an extra layer where you will be cutting.

    Here's some videos that people have done:

    Good idea with the patch kit. I may reinforce the edges of the holes with the patch kit. Or glue the patch kit to double up the liner then cut the liner .
    Thank you

    If your pool has the intex installed drain plug at the bottom of the pool you can use that and 1in pvc for plumbing.

    I use the bottom drain for my solar. Its hooked up using the 1000gph intex pump and hoses attached with some 1in pipe and fittings.

    My sand filter is plumbed with the larger intex valves which I cut in. The area I cut for the larger valves were already reinforced tho.

    I saved some liner from previous pool for patching and or reinforcement

    That's a fantastic idea. Did you use a certain valve in the inch drain plug? I could use one as intake one as flow valve?

    I dont remember my photobucket sign-on at the moment. although I did take new pictures. the ones in my thread above are much better

    where the connection is made at the pool the pcv consists of a 1inch section, the 45 elbow then some more pipe the valve and more pipe again. where it hooks onto the pool is a adapter that was inside one of my smaller intex filter hoses it slides snug over the 1inch pipe and is hose clamped, where it is hooked onto the pool fitting there is a piece of rubber from my old strainers and the adapter over that with a hose clamp. hopefully you get the idea. The small intex hoses slip over the pipe without any adapters just used hose clamps
