SOURCE: 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.

My pool pump is working great and then suddenly quits?


Do you have an in floor cleaning system? If so, the skimmer might be on a cycle and might not always have suction. Mine does this, and the skimmer (where u hook up the vacuum hose) only has suction for about 10 min. Try flipping your valve arms different ways to turn off the in floor heads

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?

Thanks fo your visit today.

When vaccuming pool,after attaching hose to skimmer water pressure resort to priming stage.wyh?


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

It happens because you are introducing a lot of air into the suction line when you attach the vacuum hose. Once the pump draws that air thru and expels it you should go back to normal pump flow in order to vacuum. To help eliminate this problem, place the vacuum under the water and take the end of the hose you will attach to the skimmer and place it over a return outlet. This will fill the hose with water and force most if not all the air out. Attach the hose to the vacuum plate and vacuum away.

How to hook up vacuum to sand filter


hooking up the vacuum assembly is done at the poolside skimmer. there is a vacuum plate that goes over top of the skimmer basket, allowing you to leave the basket in place to catch any larger debris. the plate will have a fitting at the top to attach the vacuum hose. before turning the pump on, be sure to bleed the air out of the vacuum hose so the pump does not run dry.

if this is a new thing for you (like you just bought the house with the pool, or something like that), please post any further questions in the comment section, i realize this can all be sort of overwhelming at first, and often the previous owners don't leave you all the pieces you need!

How do I vaccum the pool? I dont know if I turn the Veriflow to out and then where do I hook in the hose?..Its my girlfriends pool and she just expects me to know. Thanks


Oh then you DO need help. To vacuum you don't need to change the valve setting on the filter, but if there is a valve on the intake selecting main drain/skimmer you can select skimmer only, but I usually only do this after I have the hose primed. . You attach the hose to the skimmer inlet. Usually there will be a round plate attched to the hose that fits into the skimmer ( you may have to remove the basket) If you don't have that round plate on the hose, then you can insert the hose driectly into the bottom of the skimmer. Before you attach the hose, connect it to the skimmer head on the pole. Submerge the head and hose. Allow to settle to bottom. Put all the hose into the pool. Take the other end and hold over the discharge back into the pool to fill the hose with water (prime) until air bubbles stop coming from vacuum head. Then hold your hand over the hose (to keep from loosing prime) and quickly attach to skimmer. You may hear some air, and the pump may stop pumping fully mommentairly untill it is pumping full water again. Now you can select the valve to divert all the flow from the skimmer

You have air infiltrating the vacuum line somewhere. The hose may have a swivel cuff on one end that must be in the water, not attached to the skimmer. Next, check the gasket on to p of the pump housing. Under vacuum, the gasket may bleed air into the system shutting down the pump flow. Lastly, check the skimmer thoroughly for small cracks. Again, under vacuum it may open and allow air to infiltrate. The only way for a filter to go from 10-0 pressure is if the pump loses prime ie: air infiltration. Hope that helps.. Rob
