Above ground pool hose

Postby poolwannabe » Wed 03 Jan, 2018 09:54

Thoughts on best standard pool vacuum hose for my Intex 18'x48" above ground pool with Sand Filter pump...3gph with .95 motor. I purchased a hose adapter so I can hook it to my Intex skimmer fitting. I've read many reviews on hoses and it sounds like none of them are much good. I would like one that is 25' long, swivel end and doesn't kink or suck flat.

Thoughts on vacuum head and pole. Thank you

There isn't much to add, vacuum hoses are normally a convoluted design to stop them going flat to easily but if you have a to bigger pump then they will.
Swivel cuffs are pretty standard fit.
Make sure you buy a head for a vinyl pool and not concrete and no sharp edges!
