    Vacuum Confusion

    So I'm a little confused about manual vacuuming. I've read on here and have watched videos where you hook the hose up to the skimmer. But I have a kreepy krawly that attaches to a dedicated port on the wall of my pool. Can't I just remove the kreepy from the end of that hose and attach a vacuum head and my pole? Wouldn't that accomplish the same thing? The kreepy does pretty good on its own, but sometimes after a rain or wind storm there is more than it can handle on the bottom.
