Paul Ferrara: Algae cannot grow without phosphate. Buy phosphate remover and algae will never come back after you initially clean it!
Jeremy Clem: Wow genius! I was trying to figure out how to do this myself. Thanks for sharing.
Regina Saari: it worked!!
Tek Legion: Thanx buddy
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.
chantal villegas: Awesome thnx for the video
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.
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.
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!
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.
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?
Andy Atkinson: What vacuum do you have?
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 APPRECIATED!!!!!
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! !
dylan vanzutphen-kann: So I'm going to disconnect the output of my pump from the filter to put into a bucket?
Sonja “Sue” 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!
samnanez: What exactly is it that you are using to vacuum the pool? How are you doing whatever it is you are doing?
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?
cossjuan1: good idea it worked and i didn't loose much water 100 galls maybe
