Hello everyone! I joined recently after installing my first pool, a 21' above ground, here in Fairfield, CT. Pool school has been an invaluable resource!
If anyone is up to providing a small amount of advice... My pool package came with an automatic vacuum. Tried it out for the first time today and couldn't seem to get any suction after plugging it into my skimmer hose. To be fair, I only let the pump run for a minute and when I saw no water flowing I was worried I'd damage things by running it dry.
Did I chicken out too soon?! Is there something I goofed up? The hose came in sections that connected, so maybe i didn't push them together tight enough?
Anyway, you all have a tremendous community here, thanks!
