I would like to re plumb my intex pool to get rid of the stupid T conector in the first pic. It seems I can never get the smaller tubes tight enough and everytime I try to vacuum the pool they start sucking air.My question is how to I take care of the two small input holes? The 2 inch return hole is a piece of cake I found PVC adapters that fit. I do plan on putting a through the side skimmer on as well. Any advice is much appreciated.
