I've purchased a 2500 gph pump from intex (Model 633) but the fittings that attach to the pool are much larger than the omes for the smaller pump. I'm going to cut the holes in the liner to fit and see what happens. If I don't rui it, a sand filter is in the workd.
Were you able to cut the holes in the liner with no problems? I have a 15x4 intex metal frame pool that came with the 1 1/4 hoses and I'm upgrading pump but hoses at 1 1/2...I'm also thinking of cutting holes larger.
I previously did the same to another pool and had no problems but this was an older/smaller pool.
please advice if it worked...I would think this would be a better fit.
