my vacuum always gets i noticed that there was a lot of water being pushed out of the connection hose. The part that connects from the wall to the vacuum hose. there is a lot of water being pushed out of that connection so the vacuum isnt getting enough water pressure to keep it moving....then i noticed that outside the cement beyond the skimmer there is water flowing from under my cement onto my the pressure is getting backed up and forced out somehow...when i turned the vacuum off but kept the pump running this stopped....any ideas

It sounds like the pipe that supplies water to the pool cleaner is leaking. From your description, the leak is probably underground, presumably not to far from where you are seeing water come out. That leak will need to be fixed.
