MAKE SURE YOUR SUCTION HOSE IS GOING TO THE PUMP INLET ON THE FRONT SIDE OF THE MOTOR ON THE PUMP. YOUR DISCHARGE SIDE WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FILTER SIDE OF THE PUMP. IT SOUNDDS AS SIMPLE AS YOU MIGHT HAVE THE HOSES REVERSED.

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?

Direction of flow is FROM the skimmer to the pump and back to the jet. Its easy enough to determine which hose is the "jet" hose and which is the suction hose. Put both into the water, or in a bucket and turn on the pump, find the one that is shooting out water, that's the jet hose. On these systems, filter replacement and cleaning is annoyingly frequent if you want it to work even remotely efficient.
