Question on fittings/inlets size etc....

Hello, i just purchased a Intex 10x30 prism pool (26700EH) and a Intex 1500GPH pump. (28635EG).

Seems like the pool is designed max for a 1000GPH pump and fits 1.25 size fittings/inlets. Now would a 1500gph pump size of 1.5 inlets fit with the existing pool liner holes?

Do i have to buy 1.25 inlets/hardware/pipes etc... and then get adapters from 1.25 to 1.5 to make the 1500gph pump work?

Any help would be great. I haven't received any of the items yet, but i want to get all the parts together to get the pool up asap.

Thank you!

I also cut in larger openings. Was going to post photo of set up but photos don’t seem to be working at the moment.
