Hello, so I am new to pool ownership. Just had a concrete slab laid down to provide proper platform for the Intex 14x42 pool. Plan to landscape around it closer to fall, its just too hot right now.
Been quite a learning process as the pool and the SWG system neither came with proper fittings to work together, seems like most users have a larger pool with larger inlet/outlet diameters to work with. In fact if you put a noodle up to the oulet it will shoot water across the pool to the other side, kids like that I guess. I had to visit the local pool store and the internet to order the right parts. First I had to adapt the hoses to the inlet/outlets and then I had to order the plungers.
As you can see from the pictures below, the weight of the water in the hoses pulls down on the inlet/outlets and the pool sidewall gives way and bends. It has no negative effect of the operation, there is no leaking, but I would not want to leave it this way. I have seen where owners on here have made a system out of PVC piping, maybe that will be a project for next year. Has anyone found a creative way to prop these up with something other than a piece of scrap wood? It would be nice to find a way for the outlet to fit flush inside the pool as well.
Thanks in advance for the help.
