can`t vaccume my pool

having problems with my pool. Just purchased a new house with an inground pool and when i connect my vaccum to my skimmer, i don`t have any succion. What am i doing wrong... I live about 2 hrs away from any pool shop and can`t get a specialist to come down unless i pay them 400 $ just for the trip and then 85 $ an hour after.....i want my pool fixed but not for the price of a new pool.....please help me.

Sounds like you are getting air in the line. Are you filling vac hose completely with water before connecting to skimmer? Is vac head in water? Do you have a hole in vac hose? Are you shutting off main drain or other skimmer?
