Connect a single pump hose to the skimmer pipe located below the skimmer basket. Lock down the hose that is over the pipe with a hose clamp. Attach the opposite end of the hose to the pump. Connect the return hose to the pool's fitting pipe, and clamp it down. Connect the other end of the return hose to the return valve of the pool filter. Make a tight seal with the hose clamp.
Use another hose to make the connection between the pump and pool filter, and use water pump pliers to secure the connection. Use hose clamps to seal the pipes and hoses.
