First off I must say this is a wonderful place. I've already learned a ton and the community seems to be very friendly.
I'm sick of leaking flex hoses after 3 seasons and plan on converting my AGP to hard piping this weekend. I've read the other threads on the subject and they have provided me with a lot of helpful information. I do however have a question on how people might tackle this.
I recently purchased this light:
It works great, really lights up our 24' oval. unfortunately it has the standard connect to a flex hose connection on the inlet side of it (on the bottom). It leaks no matter what I do with a flex hose - I just can't get it clamped tight enough. I even slipped a fernco over the flex hose and tried using that - it completely blew off when I started up the pump.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to include this in a hard piped set up? Does anyone have a link to a better flex hose connection that I could clamp to this thing? If I can hard pipe everything but say a 1' section of hose that connects to the light...maybe that would work?
