I have a Hayward sand filter with a waste/backwash spout on the top at the side. Currently to drain or backwash, we have a piece of 6' PVC pipe that we set around that spout. Problem is that the water always goes to the same spot because neither the spout/port or the PVC are flexible and it's ruining that spot in the grass. I guess the best solution is to use a garden hose but I need an adapter to fit between the 1.5" waste spout and a standard garden hose. Suggestions on what I need? I promise I did try Googling but anything plumbing is not my forte and it easily overwhelms me. Also, what about the volume of the water that comes out of the waste port compared to the smaller diameter of a standard garden hose? Do I need to worry about that? The PVC pipe we use is wider than the waste port so it's not an issue.
