One of the hoses on our Intex SWG just broke....at 10:00 pm....THANKFULLY, I went outside to feed the cats and noticed the pump was running but no water was circulating. I had lost only about 1in of water so it probably hadn't been busted for long. Anyway....of course I don't have a replacement hose. The only junk hoses I had are "standard" 1.5" pool hoses that were also busted. The hose in question goes from the SWG to the pump and has (had) a threaded fitting on one end for an o-ring style connection (actually both ends, but the pump end was just using a pipe clamp so one of the threaded fittings was just hanging). I rigged up an adapter on the SWG end to kinda adapt it from the o-ring style to the regular hose clamp type connection, but the problem is my broken hose won't "seal" onto the barbed adapter that I created......anyway....heck! Has anyone ever adapted their Intex SWG to use something besides these hose/"nut" style hoses. Attached is an image of the hose I'm talking about. One end went/goes to the corresponding threaded portion of the SWG, and the other is going to the pump and clamping with a regular pipe clamp. Is there a way to fix this up, or just buy a supply of these cheap *** hoses?
