Hi, new pool owner here. Have just opened my pool this week and had to replace my sand filter so that was a little bit of a suprise expense.
Now today I tried to get the vacuum going and it really did not work out well. I watched some instructional videos online and I think I did what I was supposed to. I pushed the kreep krauly all the way to the bottom of the pool, filled the hose with water and put the hose into the skimmer hole. When I turned the pump back on my filter top immediatly began spitting water out from where the top of the base meets the adjuster. Not sure why so I just stopped as I did not want to ruin anything.
One thing I have learned is that there is a 2" adapter that I should have used to put my vacuum hose into the skimmer hole bc I dont have a threaded hole.
But would not using that have caused the leak in the filter?
Any help that can be offered would be great.
