We recently set up a 17'x42" Intex pool. I am using the small filter that came with it to run a solar heater and have purchased an Intex brand sand filter.
The pool came with small bulkheads which I am using with the original filter. The new sand filter uses 1.5" hoses. Rather than buying plunger valves and cutting them into the pool, can I just use PVC to make over-the-rim intake and return lines? I realize that I will have to figure out a way to prime the lines, but other than that is there any reason why this wouldn't work?
I am brand new to this pool thing, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
