    Shop Vac Question - STUPID!!!


    We are in a bit of a bind - we ignorantly left the shop vac hose in the skimmer hole until the pool is filled to the skimmer, and you guessed it - we can't remove the shop vac hose!

    Any suggestions? We don't know what to do!

    Can we remove the top rail above the skimmer panel and try to get the liner away from the hose a little at a time and try to remove it, or will the pool liner slip or do something so we lose our water?

    We're desperate!

    You can take a piece of the top rail off and then take two pieces of pvc pipe sanded really smooth on the end and slide them on each side of the vacuum hose. Then slip the hose out and then you can slip the pipes out.
