Hi Kim,

When you are vacuuming what position / setting is the valve in? (i.e. Filter, Backwash, By-Pass, etc..)?

Thank You


Thank You

I vacuumed the pool for the past several years so I'm familiar with the proper settings.  This year, my vacuum suction is hit and miss.  At first it seems to be sucking some leaves from bottom but as I progress, the suction gets worse.  I clean out the pump so it's not that.  The hose floats in some areas so does that mean air is getting in there?  Also, the hose crimps in some areas.  Thinking I may need a new hose.

If the filter filling up is not the issue, there could be air getting into the hose. The hose crimping is a sign that the hose should be replaced.
