I'm trying to install flexible PVC this year instead of the normal plastic hoses from skimmer to pump to filter to return. My pool installer used PVC glue to glue the threaded hose fittings into the unions of the pump and filter.
I tried to tighten the flex PVC onto the hose fitting but the hose clamp wont get tight enough. Can I glue the flex pvc directly to the hose fitting? I'm not aware of anyway to "unglue" the pvc. Should the local pool store stock replacement unions? This way I can use the barbed hose fittings with the hose clamps.
