So I'm trying to hard plumb the intex Krystal Clear Pump/Filter setup below. I tried using the connectors inScreenshot_20201117-181226_Amazon Shopping.jpg 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?
Thanks.

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...

you can change to one Like this :)


Use these high temp unions for hard pipe, once you receive the pump measure and see if it is 1.5 inch or 2 inch :)



you can use one of these in your skimmer and the through wall for the return also...

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
