Question Vacuuming solutions for Aqua Leisure pool

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this forum, and in desperate need of advice. The kids have a 14' Aqua Leisure pool. The "vacuuming system" that comes with this thing, is at best, horribly insufficient! It hooks up to the water hose, and "sucks" the debis up into a little cloth bag. Ugh..needless to say, it doesn't work for dirt or smaller debris, nor larger items such as leaves on the bottom.

My question is this: Is there any way to use a more modern vacuuming system on this pool? We have no skimmer basket, only a pump with a cartridge filter and 1 1/4 inch intake and outlet hoses.

Thanks to anyone who can shed any light on this issue for me.

Thumbs up

Look around at a pool company or on line . There is like a inline trap that goes on to the intake hose and then you put more hose on it to do the bottom of the pool. this way it stops the big stuff so it dont go to the pump or filter. They work fine.
