I looked for some ideas on using a regular vacuum with my intex ultra frame pool and didn't really come up with much that I could do without ordering parts online. So here is what I did and maybe it will help some of you too.
I went to lowes and picked up the cheapest vacuum head, a 25' x 1 1/4 vacuum hose, and a couple PVC fittings. After that all I had to do was attach them together and my filter now powers my vacuum. I don't know what the PVC fittings are called but here is the pictures.
After attaching the fitting to my inlet on the pool filter I just feed the air out of the vacuum hose and attach it to the PVC fitting. It works like a charm and I no longer have to deal with trying to scoop the small particles off the bottom of the pool with the skimmer net. The whole set-up including an extender pole cost me about $65.
I hope this helps at least a couple people.
