    New pump, incredibly frustrating fittings!

    This picture from a customer on amazon is the closest I could find to what it should look like, but my hose would not fit around any of the 1.5 inch threaded pvc pieces at home depot, so I'm really not getting how he got that to fit on there.

    New pump, incredibly frustrating fittings!

    Please help! I just got a new above ground pool pump on amazon, and it doesn't come with fittings. The outside and inside is threaded, outside is 2.5" I believe and inside is 1.5". the hose that comes with my pool has a 2" threaded end. You'd think it would be easy to find a 2 to 1.5 threaded on...

    Decent leak from above ground pool pump

    So am I correct for saying I don't need a whole new sand filter, I just need the new pump, like the one I attached in this pic? Not saying I'm going to get this one, but perhaps you all have a suggestion for a good pump for a 6,500 gallon pool.

    Decent leak from above ground pool pump

    Just took it apart...nothing wrong with the o-ring, everything looks fine. No clue why this is happening. Perhaps the screws are just weak?

    Decent leak from above ground pool pump

    It's about a 6500 gallon pool. I don't plan to have it forever, but it got us through covid and I figure every year we have it just makes the average cost of swim go down lol. If we got 2 more years out of it I'd be more than content. What I'm more sad about is the fact that once it's gone I'll...

    Decent leak from above ground pool pump

    So there's nothing that can seal it? I mean if I have to choose between a new pump and filling the pool with water for like 20-30 minutes every 4-5 days I think it's probably cheaper to refill water lol

    Decent leak from above ground pool pump

    2nd year using this best way pool pump. I know people mention they're not great, and I wasn't expecting a miracle. However it has worked great to keep our pool clean for a whole year and now going on 2. 1 problem though, there's a decent running leak coming from the frame and I'm not sure how I...
