    How to stop Hayward inlet from leaking. Will I have to draing water to redo?

    I have an Intex pool that I converted outlet to standard Hayward 1.5" inlet connector, but I can't get the darn thing not to leak. In fact I've tightened it so much that I've cracked it and will have to replace. I looked online (after the fact of course) and it stated that silicone...

    New liner, still leaking.

    I never could find the leak, so I drained pool, bought a new liner, filled up, and still leaks! I would figure the odds of a new leaking liner is low (maybe a bad assumption), so if it's not that I figure it must be the inlets/outlets, but I see absolutely zero water leaking out of the...

    Hayward Filter 1.5" or 2" fittings

    I need a new filter. The Hayward filter I'm looking at (cartridge 120sq ft) has two versions, one with 1.5" fittings and one with 2" fittings. I have a small pool and I know 1.5" size would be plenty for this pool, but I'm thinking about the future and was wondering if I should get the 2"...

    Did I buy the wrong sand filter/pump? Please help, experts. Thanks!

    I have a small 15'x48" Intex Pool, Intex CG-28669 SWCG, and I just bought an Intex 3000GPH Sand Filter/Pump. I'm wondering if I should have bought the next size down, the 2150GPH version. I was told a larger pump/filter would be better for vacuuming. Here are the manual recommendations for...
