1. Start with the Garden Hose
Make sure that you know all the parts and material of your swimming pool. Now you can start with the garden hose.
The hose should adjust with the pump spigot and due to that, it should be long enough to reach the farthest corner of your swimming pool. You should not strain or stretch the hose anymore.
2. Attach Telescoping Shaft
The telescoping shaft comes with two pieces that you need to attach and lock together. Attach one side on the end of the vacuum and then twist the shaft to allow you to lock the two together.
3. Alight the Shaft and Vacuum Head
The next thing is to alight the vacuum head and the shaft to ensure that you see the spring. Squeeze the top of the spring and plastic together and let the shaft enter the head.
4. Attach Debris Bag
Take a trash bag and attach it to the vacuum head when the shaft connects with the head. Now you can tie the bag with your vacuum head.
5. Attach the Garden Hose
Attach the hose adapter on the opposite side of the vac head – ensure that the nozzle is in place. Clip the hose to the shaft and then wind the hose of the adapter.
There is also a flat washer that comes with the adapter that you need to place in the hose coupling.
6. Adjust the Water Pressure
Now you can test the water pressure. Adjust it accordingly to meet your cleaning needs.
The critical thing is to set the perfect pressure to allow all the leaves, debris, bugs, and dirt to get inside the vacuum.
