    how to vacum my intex???

    ok i'm confused here I wanted to vacuum my pool today and so i went out and bought a 21 foot long vacuum hose with a vacuum head piece but once i got home i realized that i dont have anything to attach the the hose to for the suction. So hubby being smart that he is tried to make one up with his pipes that he has ( he's a plumber) and i thought forsure it would work not sure what kinda pipes he used but it was working until i attached the hose to it the suction just stopped sucking....tried again and same thing...so eventually i gave up and put everything away.....just wondering what everyone else is using with their intex ultra frame pools???
