I'm about to vacuum my pool for the first time ever and wanted to make sure I understand the options I currently have available and the differences between them. Based on my reading and videos I've seen, it looks like I have the following options...
1) Remove skimmer basket and connect vacuum hose directly to skimmer intake line
2) Add skimmer vac plate on top of the skimmer basket and connect vacuum hose directly to the plate
3) Connect vacuum hose directly to in-wall intake
Can someone tell me what the difference is between each of these options and under what conditions I would use each option?
