Hello,i have a vacuum cleaner but their is no air pressure in it


Do you mean the suction is very low? Or really none at all?
If low, there can be a hair/dust ball clogging the tube way deep. If you can remove it and the vacuum cleaner has an 'blow air' out you could connect the tube and blow the junk out possibly. The clog could be inside the unit instead.

If no suction at all then it's probably a complete disconnected tube somewhere.

I think you meant that the pump keeps filling with air. You may have an air leak on the suction side of the pump. If you turn the pump off, you should not see any water leaking out of anywhere, if you see any water drip near the suction side of the pump, you should consider that an air leak and repair it.

The problem you're having seems to be an air leak. when you connect the manual vacuum or if the system is running normally, there is not nearly as much suction that is created as when the zodiac is plugged in. The air is forcefully pulled into the system when increased suction is created.

Try replacing the lid o-ring and investigate any possible places on the suction side of the pump that could be a potential leak.

Hope this helps.

THIS IS WHAT VACUUMES DO THEY RESTICT WATER FLOW, YOU NEED THE PIECE THAT ATTACHES TO THE HOSE TO REGULATE THE AMOUNT OF SUCTION. YOUR LOCAL POOL SUPPLY SHOULD HAVE IT ,, AROUND 10 BUCKS .. KOOL FIX .. JAY THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FL HIT THE YES BUTTON IF I WAS OF HELP THNX J

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.

When i put my hose in to vaccum i lose suction but with out hose it will **** your hand down the pump is workin great


Are you filling the hose with water before you put your hose into the skimmer? Put your vacuum in the pool - put the other end of the hose over a discharge ... when the air bubbles stop coming from the bottom ... , put your hand over the end of the hose and then stick the hose into the skimmer suction.

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

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.
