I have decided that I have a problem with my pressure side washer and I need to clear up the pile of stuff on my pool floor. I have the attachment below (left by the previous owners), which back in the old days used to work to vacuum the floor of our pool when I was a teenager (ages ago). I bought a hose this morning because the one left here by the previous owners is old and probably has leaks.
I don't really want to spend money on another vacuum but I can't wait to get this stuff out of the pool.
I have no suction outlets on the sides of the pool, only a skimmer and the main drain. i have 3 returns to the pool - 2 for the pump and one that is for the side pressure washer.
It's been a thousand years since I had to vacuum and even then my dad set it up for me. I did a little reading on this site and someone mentioned some sort of cover for the skimmer so if I suction up big items, they will not get stuck. Can someone enlighten me as to what this item is referred to?
Also, will my ancient vacuum guy in the photo below do the trick? It's not going to be an every day thing just a now-and-then thing.
