another thing I struggle with.
when I vacuum, can I vacuum to the filter, as the sand filter foes have a basket to catch debris +a recirculation setting.
or should I vacuum using the skimmer and plate I bought that fits my skimmer?
I normally use this vacuum that has a built in debris bag, but I honestly find it leaves things behind, and is not weighted so it sometimes floats upward as I move it about the water. I am honestly sick of it, and as you know intex pools don't come with a thru-wall skimmer.
see photos so you know what I'm referring to.
