I am trying to find a way to hook my cheapie intex vacuum (cheapie that came with pool) up to my sand filter without the wait time of ordering new parts.
Here's my situation. We have cottonwood trees that are doing their thing right now so every morning I am having to vaccum tons of tiny little seeds off the bottom of the pool. I do not have a skimmer yet. I would like to have a hose that hooks up to the pump feeding water pressure to the vacuum. This way I am not adding or taking water away from the pool every day.
I went to my local hardware store today and had someone rig something up for me. Thought it was going to work great! Got home, hooked it up to the pump only to find out that the threadding or somerhing is off so it leaked. I did proceed to use it though and it did exactly what I wanted And worked better than the garden hose hooked up to the faucet on the house.
Is there anything I can do or add to make this contraption work with the intex sand pump?
