Question about Pool & Spa
For clarity of terminology, within the pool and spa industry, there is no such thing as a sand pump!
The normal way to attach a vacuum hose so that you can vacuum your pool would be to connect it to the skimmer, or suction port, inside the pool. Not directly to the pump. As that hose is connected to the outside portion, of the through wall fitting, sucking water from the pool, and bringing it into the pump, and then to your filter, and then returning back to the pool, through the return inlet fitting.

Okay. I think I gotcha covered.
I have one mocked up here right in front of me.
Still going on the PVC pipe assumption...
- Install a PVC 1 1/2 " - 1" reducer on the new pump nipple.
- Install a short piece (nipple) of 1 1/2" PVC pipe in the reducer installed on the pump
- Install an 1 1/2" MIP adapter (PVC) on the 1 1/2 " nipple
- Screw the hose onto the threaded 1 1/2" MIP adapter.
There are several ways to do this -- the above is a good way.
Have you ever mated PVC piping/adapters with solvent? I can help you with the details of this if your unfamiliar with it...
