wcjcnc: I tried this but no matter what I did the pump wouldn't keep working. I
finally just let the water syphon straight from the vacuum hose onto the
ground and it worked great. much more water flow too. thanks for the idea
though. My pool is crystal clear now.
Cindy N: OMG!!! Finally...someone actually said what I needed to hear...THANK
YOU!!! I kept vacuuming my pool and wondering why the dead algae was
getting through the filter!!! Is my pump dying? Are my filters bad? Is
there a leak somewhere in between? What the heck is a filter for if it
doesn't filter the crap out?! I was going mad trying to figure out the
problem. GRR....I will definitely do the vacuum to waste method once the
crap settles down to the bottom again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Tito Alvarado: Great Video, wish i would have seen this before dumping all my pool water
out and refilling. lol I tried so many things and making my own filters too
but algae kept coming back in the pool. Thanks for the heads up.
Victoria England: You don't even need to use the filter. Just fill the vacuum hose with water
then drop it over the side. It will drain into the grass and the suction
will act as a vacuum. You just add the water to the pool when you're done
and you're good to go! Easy Peasy.
Lisa Kimber: Omg! I was ready to stab myself! Thank you for sharing. So frustrated.
You're a lifesaver
Rebecca Vassar: Thanks! Same problem, trying to vac without the residue returning to the
pool, making it a 3 day job. I am going out to do this now. MJCH
Fritz Mulder: I'm about to buy myself an Intex Sand filter. Think it might be easier to
clean the pool with a proper filtration system.
Brenda Crow: This video does not tell or show what exactly he is vacuuming with. I
assumed it was similar to what I had. I bought extra hoses and this did
not work. $35 wasted. I don't know what kind of pump he has and I did not
know to try taking the filter out, so in all my frustration I was thinking
it may be time to drain my pool and start over. So I started a siphon hose.
My next thought was maybe I could just siphon the algae off the bottom of
the pool. It works just as well as the vacuum in this video and very simple
to set up. Same principle. My point being, if this video does not give you
enough info, try a siphon hose (just the garden hose).
kimberly newman: Thank you for this video:-) I'm going thru the same thing right now, don't
know why I didn't think of this! !
Sonja Studnar: My pump quit working too, until I found I needed to stop and keep cleaning
the filter. Then it worked great. Next time Ill just remove the filter.
Thanks for the advice!
chantal villegas: Awesome thnx for the video
dylan vanzutphen-kann: So I'm going to disconnect the output of my pump from the filter to put
into a bucket?
MikeCraft minecraft Gaming: my water is very green i tried the sink and swim and the water is still
bright green and the pool is clean .what do i do?
Julia H: The vac he is using is called a SKOOBA--you can buy them online or at
stores for around 35 bucks--it hooks up to your pump and using the intake
pressure to suck the waste--problem is it filter back thru into your
pool--its a great tool but not for algae--what he did was unhook the return
and let it run out onto the yard--The reason he keep the pump working was
to increase the suction. Using a siphon works but you don't get the same
suction that the pump will give you and it takes longer. Clear it up any?
meloyisla: This is a waste of time and water. In order 2 make ur water blue clear
sparkling again. U have to go to the the home depot and buy 1 gallon of
chlorine and 1 gallon of muriatic acid. U will see results in 24 hrs.
IrishEyes1009: I usually just syphon to waste. I am interested in why you have the box of
water next to the pool? I mean, what use is it? Do I sound totally ignorant
here? LOL And people are saying to syphon with the garden hose; is this the
same concept as just vacuuming to waste with the pool hose?
Catherine Roe: Freakin awesome!! Thank God for YouTube...I have been fighting my pool to
keep the water clear...this helped soooo much. Again thank you!
Andy Atkinson: What vacuum do you have?
Julia H: and might I add--after watching this and shocking my own vinyl above ground
pool for the last 4 days--I will DEFINATELY be doing this this this
afternoon--Thanks dude--i will let you know how it works--my pool bottom
looks like his did and its just on the bottom because my filter cartridge
when I went to clean it has no algae on it at all.
Charlotte Braneff: wow, I am so impressed with this idea. I will be trying this this
weekend. I'll comment Monday with my results
charles grubb: You're pool is infested with algae
Put chlorine shock and senkinsweet and natinal clarifier and regular
And hth pool start of a maidens kit and vacuum well I'm going to subscribe
to your Chanel
And bye bye
Hugo García: Thanks, I'll try it tomorrow.
gotlucky6972: how did u let it get this dirty, haha..dang
Heather Sandlin: I have a smaller amount than this that has settled but it's still floating
right above the bottom and as soon as I get the vacuum going it all poofs
out and then I can't see to vacuum. Seems impossible to suck up. Help!!
samnanez: What exactly is it that you are using to vacuum the pool? How are you doing
whatever it is you are doing?
Autum Schmidt: I just ordered this vacuum off of eBay today. I can't wait to try it your
way it looks so easy. When I first opened my pool this year the algae
wasn't as bad as I thought it would be so I wanted to get a jump on it. I
used 5 bags of hth super shock not knowing about the blue to green kit. It
cleared it up but was really cloudy so I have been running my filter and
it's getting better each day. question is maybe you can help me out here.
when the particles settled to the bottom it was only a little (not as bad
as yours was) but will this kokido scooba vac get them out without having
to vacuum to waste? also it's still a little cloudy what can I use to help
with that? should I just go and buy the blue to green kit anyway.
Ciaran Davey: Bob
cossjuan1: good idea it worked and i didn't loose much water 100 galls maybe
MikeCraft minecraft Gaming: do i leave my cartridge filter in? or do i take it out and run this?
Spencer whited: Thanks so much
jomo seventyseven: tear down the intex and buy a pool.
Jessica Canas: After watching this video, I went and did this to my pool. Most people were
telling me to drain it completely but I knew if I would the vinyl liner
would shrink and risk cracking. I would rather replace the water than start
from a completely empty pool. This was awesome! Thank you so much
jomo seventyseven: sink and swim...dipcrap
ONEK PROOF: we didn't cover our pool this winter , was planning on draining and
starting from scratch , do you think this would wrk for ours ?
DaGhostOfOldTomJoad: What setting do have your pump to?. Waste? Flush?
salondlali: Wow I just opted green to blue at 2 ands already clear thank you . I needed
to ask you that once I vacum it tomorrow what do I put in the pool. All
I've been doing s putting the bio guard chlorine tabs is shocking something
different. Thnks for help
maverick4684: Oh my god! I've spent weeks trying to get rid of this! Thank you for
posting. Going to try tonight. The summer is almost gone and the hotter
days were spent without a pool. Booo! Thanks again
kaycoleful: Pool looks uhhh!!
LynneR84: Worth a shot- just did the second half of the Green 2 Blue, have to let the
pump run for the rest of the hour, and then sit overnight. Can't wait to
see if this works to,or row after work!
Alma Farias: i had algae in my pool to its inground tho
Bob Le: If you want to develop a nasty skin rash lol
ragtopmann: I bought my pool vac on ebay for $45 which included shipping. Its called
the "Skooba Vac". It works excellent. I highly recommend this type of vac.
I wouldn't bother trying one that hooks up to the garden hose. Hope it all
works out for ya. Thanks.
ragtopmann: And um Nick....what about the tens of millions who water their lawn to make
it look pretty. Do you brush your teeth and leave the water on? If so,
you've wasted more than I did. Do you flush on #2's only? You know how many
gallons you use to shower each day? Go complain to a golf course. They use
anywhere from 20 million to 35 million gallons a year and your complaining
about my -1,000 gallons????
ragtopmann: If the pool is completely green to where you can't see 2 feet down, i
recommend the Green to Blue kit at Walmart. It's only $15 and it really
works. I couldn't believe it.
ragtopmann: Thank you everyone for all of the kind comments. I'm so glad I could help
Nadine Mosley: great idea...thanks!
ragtopmann: I use a skimmer and always keep 2 chlorine tablets in the skimmer. I run
the pump 12 hours a day minimum. Best to have a strong pump (1500 gl per
hour is good). I also use algea guard to keep the algea from coming back.
You'll want to replace the filter after cleaning the pool. There will be
algea in the old filter. You don't want to reintroduce the algea into the
pool or it will grow really fast. I rinse my filter every 2 days.
Adam Tech Channel: Woow thanks man, that's great idea!
MsAmandaloves: I have a problem where it won't vaccum. The tube is filled with water and
the pump is making big vaccuming noise but it Kay tent vacuum!! Help?
ragtopmann: Thats great to hear Nick....you're doing your part. :)
