Pool vacuum cleaner nozzle for INTEX filter hose

3D model description

This is a printable pool vacuum cleaning nozzle designed to fit INTEX 1 1/4" filter pump hose. It also fits standard broomstick pole.

It is designed to allow cleaning of the small 8-12' INTEX/Bestway pools via filter pump rather than Venturi type vacuum.

EDIT:

Version v2 added. Modified design has improved bevel angle to allow more natural nozzle to ground parallel position.

I have only tested (printed and used) old design therefore v2 nozzle is not shown on pictures or video.

Pros:

- it's cheaper than INTEX vacuum kit

- filters smaller particles than Venturi kit (original INTEX pump filter vs vacuum net)

Cons:

- It's fiddly to use if you don't have the hose extension

- takes 3h to print (0.3mm with 30% infill, no supports)

- unknown durability

Tested on MB 2x using ABS at 0.3mm with 30% infill, enabled raft and no supports.

NB. Let me know if you would like a different nozzle angle or any other size modification.
