We have a major leaf problem and got a manual vacuum that hooks up to the skimmer. My wife clogged up one of the valves with leaves. Twice! At least the second time I could fix it. I got the Hayward Standard Leaf Canister W560 with the intention of putting it the line of the vacuum. It has a 1 1/2 inch line with connectors on each end that will slide into the skimmer intake. Is there an adapter available to help me or a good old fashioned backyard solution?
