The Intex pool vacuum system is a little different than most other vacuum methods that you would use on the pool floor.http://www.aurorapoolsandspas.com/

No pressure on gauge on filter pump


The same thing happened to me. So frustrating! I guess the pump that comes with the intex pool is not strong enough to do this. At least that is what I was told. So I just ended up sending that vaccum back and getting a catfish vaccum. Works great!

How do i hook a vaccum up to my model 604 filter pump?


You should take your vacuum hose and plug it into the hole in the bottom of one of the skimmers. Fill the hose with water first or your pump will loose suction. I fill my hose by putting the head of the vacuum in the pool. Take the other end and hold it over a pool's discharge port (where the water comes back to the pool from the pump. When the air bubbles stop, put your hand over the end of the hose and move it to the skimmer and connect it.

That work for you?

WWas working just fine then hooked up vaccum and cleaned pool now the skimmer does not have any suction-- water blows out other side just fine and I have gotten all air out of lines--- any ideas


Depending on how much you vacuumed, your filter may just need to be cleaned. The filter on these units are not very big, so they can get dirty fast. Make sure it is cleaned out. Make sure skimmer basket is not clogged up, and make sure none of the flexible hoses are crimped. Also make sure there isn't anything stuck in the impeller. A stick, twig, or piece of toy, etc, can get stuck and cause low flow. Check for leaks between the suction side of the pump and the pool skimmer. One more think you might want to check is for leaks on the suction side while equipment is off. a leak here will let air into system and effect flow.

How do you hook the vacumn to the skimmer?


First connect hose to vacuum head mounted on handle. Put vaccum in water. Take other end of hose and hold over return outlet filling the hose with water until the vacuum floats up and all the air bubbles stop bubbleing. When it sinks again, hold your had over the hose and take it to the skimmer. If you have an adaptor plate for skimmer have it already on the hose. If you don't have one, then remove basket and quickly remove your hand and put hose down ito pipe in skimmer. You will get some air and once the pump recovers, and starts pupming, then begin vacuuming.

Low flow indicator on saltwater pool filter


If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

I have a 18" Intex pool and I need directions for hooking up the pol's vaccum. The pool was given to me.


hi
the tricky part is to avoid air from coming into the vaccum pipe and from there to the pump .

1. the first thing you got to do is fill the pipe with water .you can do that easly by putting the vaccum pipe next to the outlet water exit while the pump is working till you see that there is no more air inside the pipe .
2. connect the pipe with the cone to the skimmer , at this stage you might get some air inside the pipe but don't worry .
3. once all part are connected and the vaccum head is in the water activate the pump and open the top screws on top of the pump and the filter to realese the air that might have entered the pipe .
once the air is out and the vacuum works close the screws and you are ready to go .

enjoy

The jets quit working when I prime and attach the vaccum hose


you could have a leak in the vac hose or a shaft seal on the pump, if there is a wet spot under your pump there is a good chance the shaft seal is BAD.... some pumps are so strong you can starve the PUMP for water, the trick is to set your valve more towards the main drain./ hope this helps.. i'm your local pool pump motor repair guy
