Question about Emerson Pool & Spa
You need to pre-prime the hose with water. remove the hose, vac head and pole from the pool. lay the hose out straight (not coiled up). with the pole and hose attached, lower the vac head to the bottom of the pool. carefully feed the remaining hose over the pool wall vertically down into the water hand over hand until the end of the hose is at the water line, water should well-up out of the end of the hose. keeping the end of the hose low at the water line, bring it to the skimmer and through the skimmer opening. stick the end of the hose down into the vacuum port in the bottom of the skimmer pot. this should resolve the loss of flow at the pump from gulping air through the hose.

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.
