I have had my pool for 13 years. My filter is not the best to use to vac the pool; the bags need to be cleaned a few times while doing this. I have had a pool company do a weekly cleaning on it for the past 5 years or so. I want to stop using them and do it myself because it is very expensive. I have noticed that when they come to vac the pool they bring in a pump and connect a vac hose to it and another hose for the "return" water to my lawn. If I could get my hands on a pump like this I could do myself. The problem I am having is that all in-ground pumps come hotwired; meaning no 3 prong plug to plug into an extension cord. I am almost positive I could wire this myself but I want to be sure first before I buy the pump. I spoke with a tec to a pool supply that I use on-line and was told I would need a lic electrician to do this or it would void the warranty on the pump.
Has anyone done this?
