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.

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.
