    Question Hayward Xtream Cartridge filter - How do I vacuum?

    I feel seriously silly asking this, do I attach the vacuum to my filter? Its a Hayward cartridge filter. Here is how it was listed on the delivery manifest...Hayward Pool Products 150 SwimPro Elem w/Base/Hoses CAR. I called the manufacturer because there was no instruction manual provided. Hayward told me that it was basically the Hayward Xtream and they sent me that manual.

    Here is all it says about vacuuming, "VacuumingVacuuming can be performed directly into the filter whenever needed. For fastest results, clean the filter before and
    after each vacuuming. For heavy spring clean ups, we recommend using a Hayward SP0727 diverter valve to bypass
    the filter and accelerate the clean up process. Consult your local Hayward dealer for a detailed explanation." What?!? Crappy customer service if you ask me.

    Anyone have some guidance?

    Most folks hook vacs up into the skimmer with an adapter.
