Your valve should be set to filter when you vacuum, not waste.

How do I vacuum my index pool


Even with an "upgraded" pump, it still doesn't provide enough suction to do a good job. They are just a better than non upgraded 'toy'! But... Take your vacuum hose with the vacuum head attached and one end connected to your telescopic pole and send it to the bottom of the pool. Then slowly feed the rest of the hose pushing water into the hose until you reach the opposite end. Water should come out of the other end! If it does not, you did not prime the hose correctly. Try it again this time push deeper into the water beating the hose slowly pushing the water up into the hose at the surface level. Once you have water coming out of the other end you plug it into your suction port. Turn on the pump and now you have section at the other end of the hose, that the vacuum head. Now just vacuum the bottom of the pool, as you would vacuum your carpet in your home.
all of that dirt, sand, silt, and other debris, will end up in your filter element. You will have to clean it, if not replace it.

What would be the best automatic pool cleaner for intex 18 x 48 easy set


the vacuum you are using is probably the best for the system you have. if you want a REAL pool vacuum, get a REAL pool. there is a reason that these are considered disposable pools. dont get me wrong, any way to cool off is great and these pools allow people this 'luxury' at a reasonable cost but they are assembled with low end, non standardized equipment that doesnt match with traditional pool equipment.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool


Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

How do i set up the vacuum for intake pool?


The first thing you need to do is make sure the pump is primed and able to draw water from the pool and return it with full flow to the pool. Now turn it off and make sure that your hose fits into the suction port and that the hose connects correctly to the vacuum head and the pool pole fits to the vacuum head. Next you need to disconnect the vacuum from the suction port and place the vacuum head with the hose and pole connected to it onto the bottom of the pool. Now force the hose straight down into the pool so it forces water into the hose and forces all the air out of the end that connects to the suction port. Keep forcing more and more hose into the pool until all the hose is filled with water. This is called "sinking the hose". The end of the hose can now be connect to the suction port. When the pump is turned on it should start pumping water from the hose into the pump and when flow is able to draw dirt as you move the vacuum across the bottom of the pool until it is clean. I hope this helps.

There is a 3 way valve that regulates water to the pump from my in ground pool. Is there a way to attach hose and vacuum without repeatedly unplugging and replugging the electrical supply? The suction...


1. My pump has a switch on the bottom of the back of the pump opposite the impellar, check yours.
2. Does the 3 way valve change where the suction is coming from? If so, when done vacuuming through the skimmer, switch the valve to the bottom inlet and skimmer suction should stop if the valve is working properly.
