Where do I plug in my pool vacuum?
In this manner, how do I turn on my pool vacuum?
Leave the hose in the water, place the vacuum head to the end of the hose, and then connect to the filter suction end. You should notice the hose sink into the pool and the vacuum head rest at the bottom of the pool. Then you can turn on the vacuum setting on the control and it should start moving the vacuum head.
Additionally, do you vacuum a pool on backwash or waste? To begin vacuuming your pool: If you do have this option, it is highly recommended that whenever you have algae, you will need to vacuum to waste. This option allows you to vacuum the algae up and send it out through the backwash line, avoiding getting algae into your filter sand.
Simply so, why is there no suction on my pool vacuum?
Suction-Side Problems Possible reasons for this problem include the following: The water level in the pool is too low. Make sure the water is high enough to cover all the skimmers—if there is more than one—and all the return jets. The suction hose for the vacuum has holes, or it isn't fully connected.
What setting do you put your pool filter on when vacuuming?
For routine vacuuming, the filter valve is left in the normal “Filter” position. This directs dirty vacuum water through the pool filter to remove the contaminants, then conveys filtered water through return lines back to the pool. The "Filter" setting is used for light to moderate levels of pool sediment.
