i found something almost identical that worked in the plumbing dept. at our local hardware chain store! go look, unless you don't mind throwing away like $10!
not look like the item Amazon is showing.
See my JPG of the real item.
The thing probably leaks, because it has no gasket.
If you rely on this way of emptying your pool, you will be at it for a couple
of days and that is if you have a small pool; if your pool is over 1500 gallons, I would
recommend using a sump pump, or at least your pool pump until the water line gets down to
the pool exhaust (pump intake) line at which point it starts sucking air and you have to go
to some other system.
Also keep in mind that in order for this to work, the place you're draining the pool too has to be lower elevation than the water in the pool, otherwise gravity says the water doesn't have to go anyhere. So if the pool is in your backyard (like mine was) and the backyard is lower than the street where the drains are, you can't drain it to the street. You can drain it to the backyard, but if you wanted to do that you wouldn't need a hose, you could just pull the plug and let the thing drain. So even after I spent the $15.00, I ended up going another way.
If you own a pool, you probably also own your home or at least rent a house vs an apartment, so here's my advice: Go to Lowes and spend $50.00 on a submersible pump. Or buy a Submersible pump on Amazon.com, Amazon is cool too. But this adapter is tiny piece of plastic that you're CERTAINLY going to lose after the first time you use it, and on top of that you have to pay $10-15 plus shipping for something that it cost the Chinese eight cents to make. Even if you don't lose it, you'll never use it for anything else ever again other than the one situation of draining your pool..Read more ›
As for the leaking issue everyone is complaining about, with a regular hose hookup, yes there is some leaking. More like a constant drip. BUT I found a hose at a hardware store that has a coupling attached to the one end. I used this side to attach to the drain plug connector and had NO leaks whatsoever. So my advice would be to get a coupling or buy a hose with one already attached and you then won't have to deal with the leaking issue.
Other then that though, connector works greats and does the job. We have a 4.5ft by 6ft pool and it took about 2 days to drain the entire pool using the hose and the connector. Nice added thing is that the speed that the water comes out isn't so quick so I was able to put it on the concrete part of our backyard and didn't have any flooding issues on our grass.

Would it have been so hard to design a plug that contains a gasket and doesn't leak? Hey Intex...I would like the water to drain through the hose instead of having half of it... Read morePublished 2 months ago by anonymous

This is extremely over priced. Intex sells the same piece for about 6 bucks including shipping. I had no choice but to buy one here because intex were out until mid November. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Judith
Horrible didn't fit at all! I wound up using plastic and tape to fix my garden hose to the piece on the pool and called it a day! Waste of time and money! Do NOT order this part!Published 3 months ago by Keith Webb
I wish it had been cheaper for what it is, but it was much better than emptying the pool where it was, causing flooding near the neighbor's fence. Read morePublished 5 months ago by C.A.
