Okay. As soon as I posted that I don't need a manual vacuum because i hardly get any leaves in the pool all year, wind blows pretty strong for two days and I had enough leaves stuck in the skimmer to constrict flows. I think polaris 280 wasn't working as usual due to low flow or something. My pool got very dusty in two days.
Anyway, so I am thinking I need a manual vacuum for windy days. I don't want to leave the pool pumps for more than I have to just to clean up after a storm.
Here are what i found on amazon. If you have a recommendation, please send me a link.

My question what else do you need in order to use a manual vacuum. I have a telescoping pole. That's covered.
Now, do I need a separate hose? Can I use the pressure line for Polaris 280? If I can use the pressure line, do manual pumps come with correct adaptor?
I think I found a garden hose version at Home Depot. Is that good or bad? This might be good because i don't have to unhook the polaris.
Anybody using pressure side manual vacuum and happy with it? I am specially interested in picking up fine particles. My pool looks very cloudy today.
