I have an Intex Ultra Frame 12 x 24 pool. Need to replace my handheld vacuum (loved it until battery stopped holding the charge). Figured I'd go with an automatic one now. Liked the Polaris Vac Sweep 65 as it has the bag - have a lot of trees around the pool and don't want to clog up my filter. From my research (Google!), it looks like it hooks up via the inlet - but we installed a thru-the-wall skimmer and closed up those holes. How would I hook up the vacuum? TIA BTW - love this forum - it has helped me navigate how to maintain and enjoy my pool!

Mrs LBH, you have to have a good healthy return flow of water to make the Polaris 65 work. That water is what pushes it along.

Perhaps another rechargeable vac?? I like the PoolBlaster Max .
