How does the mainstay pool vacuum work?
Also asked, how does a pool vacuum work?
Your vacuum system works by attaching it to a skimmer inlet powered by the suction of the pool circulation pump. Before you connect the open end of the hose to the inlet, you will need to remove the strainer basket. Then simply plug your open vacuum hose in to the suction port at the bottom of the skimmer.
In respect to this, when vacuuming a pool What setting should the filter be on?
Make sure to empty all skimmer baskets. If you vacuumed on waste, you will need to turn your filter to the “rinse” setting, turn on the pump and let it run for about 30 seconds, and then turn the pump back off. Make sure to set your filter back to “filter” after you do this.
HOW TO VACUUM TO WASTE A POOL:
- Fill the pool before beginning, and run the hose while vacuuming.
- Shut off pump and switch the multiport valve to the Drain to Waste Position.
- Vacuum as fast as possible, the water level can drop fast.
- Stop vacuuming when the skimmer begins to suck air, allow the pool to refill.
