I have an intex ultra 18x9x52 and I need a vacuum to hook up to the intake in order to go through the filter . Can anyone help me figure out what I need ? Im so confused with the hose and the connections.

Right now i’m using a water powered vacuum that uses the venturi effect and it’s just not cutting it!

With those pumps if u have alot of sediment to vac up you’re better off vacuuming to waste via the siphon method over the side of the pool- you can do that with the vac u have if u just cap off the hole where the bag goes.
i have an intex auto vac that’s on its 4th season & it has worked well for me but it’s starting to show its age lol. 2 seasons on my intex pool & 2nd season in my 33’ above ground. It’s preferable to avoid the filter when u have small filter as those pools do. If u have the $ the dolphin e-10/s-50 is excellent.

U can use a standard manual pool vac on the intake as well- you may need a cone adapter to make it fit

It might- if u have the adapter u could take it to the store (home depot/lowes/ pool supply) & see if it fits a hose or if u need a cone/ or other adapter

Don't fool with hoses at all! Get the WaterTech Pool Blaster leaf vacuum for $80 or so bucks. This thing is battery powered and picks up leaves, large acorns, and even small sticks with ease. I've had mine this entire season, changed out the batteries twice, and it's given complete satisfaction.

Here's my review thread with links.
