    Intex pool cleaner hookup question

    i broke down and bought an intex pool cleaner. i took it out of the box, and then i realized i do not have the right parts to hook it up. i have the hayward return eye. can anyone help me in getting this thing hooked up? i cannot think of anyway to get this thing going.

    Good news!! If you're talking about this one or one like it, it hooks up to your inlet/return valve and functions with a vacuum created by water pressure not pump suctions. Easy button...yay!!
    Hope that helps.

    P.S. The "leaks" at the hose section joints are intentional in the design, apparently.

    yes that is the one i am talking about. my problem is i cannot hook it up to the return jet without making mods to the return jet. i am going to home depot to find a way to get it going.

    well i think i got it beat. i got a 1 1/2" screw in connector then i went to a 1 1/2" to 2" adapter then to a 2" screw on fitting. looks like it will work. i will see in about 2 hours when solar cover comes off the pool for the day so we can swim.

    Chayne, do you have pictures of how you did that? I have the same setup (hayward skimmer & auto intex vacuum) and cannot for the life of me figure out how to get this thing to work. The hayward skimmer came with a vacuum attachment but I don't think that works with this intex auto vacuum because it uses the return valve. But like you, I have the hayward eyeball return and it does not hook up.
