What I Hate About Vacuuming The Pool


Recommended Posts

I hate to pull out the hose, kneel down on the aggregate stone (ouch!) hold the hose over an return to fill the line and then finally put the hose into the skimmer. Seems there has to be a better way. I have devised in my head away to plumb in a 3 way valve that I would connect to the vac hose. In one position, it will send water out the line to purge the air and in the other position, it will then reverse and suck from the pool. If it works, I just hook up the hose to the vac head and drop it in the pool. Purge, then vac.

This seems reasonable on paper. Has anyone done this? Am over looking something that spells impending doom? Other solutions?

Let me hear what you have done.
