    Kontiki thing with a bunch of hoses, is this the vacuum??

    We bought this house last October and it came with an above ground pool. In the crawl space of the house we have found a large plastic storage tub with lots of white hose (kind of stiff), one hose with a nozzle thingy (has a rusty spring), and a blue handled something with "Kontiki" written on it (has a large b lue web like circle around one end). Is this a vacuum? If so, how do I hook it up and use it? I would love to use it as we get up the last of the debris from the bottom of the pool. Will it pull up sand?
    I measured our above ground pool side to side today and it was 24 ft and 4 inches. It is about 4 ft deep.

    My pump is this:

    New to pool ownership, it came with the house we bought last October.

    It is a suction side cleaner that hooks into your skimmer. Just do a search for Kontiki pool cleaner.
