So I'm trying to hard plumb the intex Krystal Clear Pump/Filter setup below. I tried using the connectors in the picture but the 1.5 PVC pipe is about a millimeter too big on all sides. Are there any other adapters I can use with 1.5 PVC?
most go hard pipe when they change out the Intex pump and filter.. if your staying with the same filter and pump it is easier to stay with there system as it is not a US standard system as you have found out...
I’m in the UK and got one of these Intex Rigid Pipe Conversion Kit
That allowed me to put rigid 1.5” pipe onto the pump. I’m sure there will be an equivalent product in the US and probably cheaper too!
Hello, This is just an FYI as I remember people had difficulty getting the Intex pipework converted to PVC pipe. There are adapters that work off the shelf: Those two screwed together make this: Which you add the stepped / L profile Intex rubber washer to: And here is the blanking cap...
I’m planning on doing this myself as i use intex swg’s w/ my hardsided above ground pool & plan to convert to pvc this spring.
Here are some pics from a post (which I can’t seem to find now) to address the pump & swg connections - basically you slip the grey intex nut over this & add the black rubber gasket & screw it in then you can glue pvc into the other side of the fitting

What these 2 said... BUT it doesnt have to be electrical.. it can be regular slip reducers, you just have to sand off the raised size letters. Finding a gasket was a little harder, went to my hose supply and found some.. umm ill try and track down 1 and take a picture.
But you cut your intex hoses and keep the connectors
