3. Vacuum hose
You just want to make sure you buy one long enough to reach all areas of your pool.
4. Skim vac (vacuum plate)
This allows you to use the skimmer basket instead of the pump’s strainer basket, eliminating the need to turn the pool pump on and off.
How to vacuum manually
Step 1. Prime the sweeper
The first thing to do is to remove air from your vacuum system.
Air pockets can cause your unit to lose suction, so take the time to prime it the right way.
To do this, simply assemble the hose and telescopic wand onto the vacuum head. Then, lower the whole thing quietly to the bottom of your pool.
Then, simply stick the other end of the hose against a jet and allow it to push all the air out of the hose.
You’ll see air bubbles floating up, telling you that the air in the hose is being pushed out.
When there are no more bubbles, the hose is free of air and you are ready to begin.
Step 2. Connect to the pump (suction)
Your system will work by attaching it to a skimmer suction.
Remove the basket from the skimmer and connect the hose to the female part at the bottom of the skimmer.
Step Three. Let’s vacuum
Now simply move the vacuum head back and forth over the pool surface until it is clean.
If you lose suction, you will need to repeat steps 1 and 2.
Tip: If you have a sand filter, use primarily the Waste/Drain function, not the Filter function.
