Pool vacuums consist of a telescoping pole, a hose and a vacuum head. Insert the pole into the hinged connector on the back of the vacuum head, and push the hose over the tubing that goes through the head.
Use the pole to lower the head to the pool bottom while holding the free end of the hose.
Find the skimmer outlet on the side of the pool, and push the free end of the vacuum hose into the skimmer nozzle.
Watch the bubbles coming out of the vacuum head. When it stops bubbling, the hose is full of water.
Put the filter in intake mode so that it creates suction in the hose.
Push and pull the vacuum across the pool bottom. Work in an orderly pattern to cover the entire pool.
