    My pool has leaves at thee bottom

    My pool has a bunch of leaves at bottom, can anyone point me in a direction to get these out, tools to use or make. I have a leaf rake, think its called that hooks to a water hose but that seems to take for ever.
    ???
    My Pool:
    Foxx Pool Grecian style 19' X 39'
    27k, with a sand filter=300 lbs of sand

    vinyl liner

    The leaf eater you have is a good option for a lot of leaves. You may just not have enough hose pressure. if you buy the proper fittings (1.5" male threaded reduced down to 3/4" male threaded on the other side) you can run it from one of your pool returns which will probably give you more power and allows you to use a shorter hose.

    Now that is a good idea! I'll have to do that for mine.
