    Too much suction when vacuuming

    There is too much suction when I vacuum the pool. I use a vacuum head that has wheels but it still doesnt work. The head routinely gets stuck on the vinyl liner. Does anyone have suggestions?

    mine came with an adjustable regulator valve that allowed you to decrease the suction. i tossed it because i had just the right amount. this is the one that came w/ the poolvergnugen. im of course assuming you have a suction side vacuum, which may not be the case.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Wheeled vacuum heads are generally not intended for vinyl pools. You want the kind that has brushes to prevent sticking.
