It looks like it is not possible to use a 1" line as a vac line. So I'll be getting a pressure side cleaner, leaning towards "The Pool Cleaner".
Here is a picture of my equipment pad:
From what I have read on the Pool Cleaner (pressure) manual I should put a valve between the pump and filter (horizontal gold pipe in the picture) to direct pressure to the cleaner. If this is correct how should I do this?
Put a 3 way valve and re-jigger the plumbing to make it work? Inlet from pump, Outlet 1 to filter Outlet 2 to pressure cleaner.
Install a T and a 2 way valve after the T. The valve would turn off (some flow) to filter and direct it to the pressure line for the cleaner.
