    Pool Vacuum for skimmer?

    Hi Everyone - I installed a Hayward skimmer on my pool and it has the vacuum attachment. What do you recommend as a vacuum? I have an intex 16' by 48" deep pool.

    I went to Leslie's and bought a vacuum hose, head and telescoping pole. I got tired of the flimsy Intex pole and accessories. Having a regular pole is nice because standard accessories fit it.

    Here is the cheap intex pole that comes with the easy set pools beside the one that comes in the maintenance kit. The white one is a lot heavier duty.
