I have a low cost above ground Intex vinyl pool and a filter with micron cartridge and it is not effective in filtering the semi-solids that accumulate on the bottom unless the bottom area is constantly stirred up. This semi-solid material is an assortment of body oils, lotions, dirt, algae etc.
So I wonder if there is an adapter available to allow me to hook up a length of hose to the pool filter intake screen and then attach a suction tool at the opposite end.
I am not sure if this idea will work because both the pump and suction tool will be at the same level but the pool intake screen is higher. If I can get this to work, I think the micron cartridge will trap these semi-solids.
I would like to know how others have solved the problem of sucking up semi-solids that lay on the bottom of above ground pools.
