Moved from here... INTEX STRAINER GRID CLOGGING
I see that this is an older comment /question. I have the same problem. I’ve tried both intex vacuums(garden hose and suction into a small net bag), as well as a standard suction vac and a ladybug vac both going right into the strainer grid. The strainer grid is an engineering mistake. It prevents you from genuinely cleaning the pool. Have you had any success or progress on this?Thanks for the reply. I disconnect the hose form the pool skimmer and i plug the bug hose into the adapter on the strainer grid. There is mostly dirt and dead bugs at the bottom right now, When the bug picks it up it the grid just gets clogged. I dont know if there is a way to leave off the grid since its screwed on by a nut for that application. Could i just make the holes bigger on the grid?
