with vacuuming. I got most of the leaves out of the pool with a bag net and bought one of those caps that go over the strainer basket for the vac hose. It all worked great vacuuming the other day but today the cap just kept popping off.
I had blocked off the other skimmer and shut off the main drain valve. Got kind of frustrating. Should I just pull the strainer basket and plug the vac hose directly into the bottom of the skimmer ? Then clean out the strainer basket in the pump when finished ?
