    They do not come with plunger valves. I ordered mine from Intex when they were in stock.

    Many have used ball valves to build their own.

    M, but it makes it much harder to clean the filter basket on the pump. I found some caps I was able to screw on to keep the water from gushing out. I screwed them onto my outlet and inlet. It was a huge pain though and it is much better with the plunger valves now.

    It looks like I also need the nozzle assembly as well

    Those you can get on Amazon. Get 2 of these and just unscrew the eyeball from one. That is what I did.

    Amazon.com : Intex 1.5 in. Large Pool Inlet Nozzle Assembly : Toys And Games : Patio, Lawn Garden
