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.

When our above ground automatic pool cleaner is contected(zodiac manta) our pool pump keeps filling with water and the vaccum does not move. The hoses are fine and we have changed the diaphram just...

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.

The pump lose prime when we vacuum

The reason the pump will lose prime anytime is because insted of the pump pulling in water, it is now pulling in air from some source. When you set up the pool to be vacuumed, you must be sure to prime the vacuum hose with water before inserting the vacuum hose into your suction. The easiest way to do this is to:
1. attach vac.head unto the vac.pole and 1 end of the vac hose.
2. holding on the the other end of the vac. hose so it doesn't get away from you. slowly lower the the set up into the pool and make sure the pole doesn't get away from you either.
3. now you will notice part of the hose is filled water and part of it is floating ontop of the water with air still in it. Now while sitting on the edge of the pool, pull the hose toward you to where you think the part of it is now full of water. than slowly feed the rest of the hose, hand over hand until the end of the hose and you will see water come out the end, the hose is now totally full of water.
4. This is the tricky part, cuff your hand over the end of the filled hose and with the pump running plug the end into the suction, re: skimmer or suction port.
At this point you might have induced some air into the system and the pump may lose prime or start to lose prime. Go over to the pool equipment and if present, bleed the air out of the filter.
Hope this solves your problem.

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?

My Lindhaus Diamante 300 has great suction but clogs

Sounds like you have some form of an obstruction in the hose ( i once found a tooth pick sideways in mine) most models allow for the hose to be disconnected from the vaccum itself, also make sure theres not a setting for attachments also, some models need the suction redirected.

My well pump keeps losing its prime. The pump

There may be a slight leak within the suction piping, just enough to allow air to enter as its sits for an extended time. I'd be ceratin the foot valve is good and check over all of my suction pipe connections.
I hope this may have helped,

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.
