Go slow when vacuuming pool. Learn tips for vacuuming your swimming pool in this pool care video from our swimming pool expert.
Now you're ready to go. Extend your pole, wherever you would like, so that you'll get a good reach with the vacuum and not have to make a bunch of extra trips. You just roll the vacuum across the bottom of the pool and it picks up all the debris and carries it to your filter. You have to go slow or it won't pick up all the debris good. It's kind of like vacuuming your floor. It works in the same manner, other than the debris is going to your filter and not to a bag. In some sense it's in a bag because not all filters have sand in them, some filters are called DE filters. DE means diatomaceous earth. It's pretty much just dead earth that you put in your bag, in your filter, and it collects all the debris, pretty much the same. I, myself, like a sand filter because the sand filter is more user friendly. When you vacuum you may not get everything the first thing, it may take another brushing and another vacuuming, to collect everything.
