If the Intex inlet strainer connector (1.5") is out of stock, try this! Due to incredibly high demand for stock tank pools, Intex has run out of stock for this part so I designed a very similar alternative which can be 3D printed on demand. This threaded inlet strainer connector is designed for Intex and Bestway pump systems which use threaded 1.5" hoses (it will not fit 1.25" hoses). It works perfectly with Intex plunger valves for 1.5" hoses too.
Free shipping included!
3D printing can be *very* expensive. In fact, the first iteration was twice as expensive to produce, so I made the following modifications to minimize cost:
- Integrated the inlet grill into the part, resulting in a less bulky, low-profile design
- Removed threaded connectors on the part which sit inside of the pool (it will not connect to skimmer baskets)
- Reduced the part's wall thickness.
Why is this so darned expensive?
Because this part is 3D printed (on demand) it is significantly more expensive than the Intex part which is injection molded in extremely large quantities, so before you buy this part double-check availability of the Intex inlet strainer (link). However, free shipping is included and I will stand behind and guarantee the product.
Guarantee: If the product fails under normal use, I will send you a replacement at no cost. However, due to the unique production of this part I cannot accept returns or refunds. If you have any issues with the strainer, email firstname.lastname@example.org,
Shipping and Production Lead Times
Please allow 2-3 weeks for production and shipping from the New York factory. Depending on demand, it may take longer.
