Our pool has about a foot to go and it will be full
Water has been running (except for when we go to bed) since Sat morning so it's slow going but almost there! Hard plumbed PVC, pump & filter were all set up yesterday. Electrical being finished today (since we got rain both Sat & Sun we're behind). I promise to post pictures shortly.....
As much as we planned, anticipated, bought an upgraded filter / pump, etc, I am now finding things I didn't consider - vacuuming being one of them.
The pool came with the Intex "attach to the waterhose" vacuum. From looking at the instructions I have no clue how it's suppose to work. I was hoping to at least use this until we can get some basics figured out over the next 30 days. I'm thinking by then, the pool will have "settled" all it's going to, we will hopefully have gotten up the nerve to cut in a skimmer, and from there can buy a true vacuum.
Does this plan seem crazy? If not, can someone tell me how in the world to use this vacuum? If I hook my waterhose to it, and then turn on my waterhose, won't it then shoot water in my pool. I am fairly intelligent (we just setup this 26' pool with a real pump + filter) but I can't figure out this simple Fisher Price looking Intex vacuum to save my life.
