New to this site a few weeks ago, and have learned a ton ... thanks for all the info.
Now I have a question I haven't seen asked ... I am trying to add a sunheater (2'x20') solar collector to my 16' x 42" easy set pool. I have upgraded the filter to the 1500 so I had to use the Intex adapters on the pool side that allow a bigger filter to be added to a small pool like we have.
Pic of that adapters used:
Now I have threaded 1 1/2" on the pool side, and threaded 1 1/2" on the 1500 filter. The pool place doesn't have anything to help. What I am asking is, what do I need to buy that would allow me to NOT use the intex threaded hose style connections, or more likely what would take the pool side from a threaded connection ... to a hose clamp connection?
It looks like on the filter side that I could connect a standard hose and and use hose clamps just ignoring the threaded option ... but on the pool side I am out of ideas.
4th year with this little pool (kids are still small) but now I am ready to get the solar collector set up ... that is new.
If more pictures would be helpful let me know.
Thanks in advance.
