I live in Arizona and we have dust storms pretty frequently in the summer which leaves a nice layer of dirt on the bottom of my pool. I try brushing as much as I can to my main drain, and the in-floor pop outs do an OK job of moving some of it along, but there can be significant buildup of the dirt. I purchased this vacuum recently and gave it a try:
Amazon.com : Swimline 8150 Weighted Flex Vacuum Head, Blue : Swimming Pool Vacuum Heads : Patio, Lawn Garden
I have two skimmers. I closed off one skimmer, and hooked up my hose and vacuum to the other. The vacuum was able to remove a few leaves from the bottom of the pool, but didnt make the dirt budge.
Any suggestions for how I can get rid of this dirt? Is the vacuum I purchased not great? Is it operator error?
