Flexible PVC/vinyl tubing for pool plumbing

Postby wdpool » Wed 16 Aug, 2006 10:11


Is it OK to use flexible PVC/vinyl tubing or pool vacuum hose for pool plumbing?? I would like to use the flexible stuff on both the suction and return side, ie. intake to 3/4" Hayward pump to DE filter and from DE filter to return.
