POOLSKIM connector too big for my 1" pool inlet.

Postby Mfpluna » Tue 27 Jan, 2009 11:35

Iv been looking everywhere online for a fitting to fit INSIDE my (im guessing very small rare) 1" pool inlet.

Im trying to install the POOLSKIM I ordered but the connectors were too big to fit inside the inlet, the inlet also does not have any "teeth" to screw it in, the inside just seems like a regular pvc pipe. So iv been looking everywhere for some kind of adapter fitting to fit inside the 1" inlet and make it bigger to either a 1.5 or 2" im not sure yet I have to see how big the connector is again on the POOLSKIM.

if anyone can help it be much appreciated, or where something like this can be bought or found. Im stuck.

Ive seen this before on some Intex pools, and on at least one of them the 1" blue fitting actually screwed into the side of the pool. Do you know if yours unscrews (be gentle!) In this peticular case, the fitting unscrewed on both sides revealing a 1 1/2" threaded fitting (which is fairly standard.)

Hope this helps.
