    Help with Intex Upgrade - Connections & Hoses

    I have a 14x42 intex ultra frame. I am trying to upgrade my pump from 1000gph to 2500gph. This new pump came with 2 hose. The holes for the hoses in my pool are smaller than the openings for these new hoses. I do not want to cut my pool.
    My pool also has 3 openings instead of 2. How in the world do I make this work?? Can I use my original intake strainers or do I have to get new. I have no idea what I am doing. Any help and/or pictures would be appreciated!

    Re: How do I change out filter pumps??

    Many people have upgraded their Intex pool. Here are a few examples:
    Intex 18X48 filter, plumbing upgrade/relocation project.
    Useful links for fellow Intex Pool Owners
    intex hard plumb - pump to 1.5 pvc

    Hope these links help give you something to start with. I'm also going to rename your thread to grab more Intex owner's attention. Hopefully other Intex users will reply.

    I also did a major upgrade on mine, changing inlet/outlet connections to more standard ones.. along with PVC and a diagram showing which parts i used.. it might be helpful, unsure, but figured i'd mention it (link in my sig).
