    Vacuum attachment?

    Do they make a pool vacuum attachment sorta like they do for regular vacuums that "sword" shaped and made for getting in couches and stuff....my pool has hard angles on it and I would love to have one sine my regular flat head brush attachment doesn't pick up the dirt, rather just disturbs it into the water....maybe a picture will help me explain myself better.

    I did see those but i was wondering if there was one without a brush.

    The brush just seems like it would disturb the dirt even more.

    Guess I could make my own....

    You need the brush to protect the liner. A wheeled plaster vacuum can get sucked down and stick pretty good. Trying to pry that off your liner may damage it or create a wrinkle. With full vacuum power on that skinny head, I don't see any dust escaping. If it does, maybe you don't have enough suction. You might have to shut off the second skimmer or the main drain or something.
