Did this video help you?

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!

Andy Atkinson: What vacuum do you have?

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?

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.

MikeCraft minecraft Gaming: do i leave my cartridge filter in? or do i take it out and run this?

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

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.

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.

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? 

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!!

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!

Sharane Dunn: Thanks for sharing this

Hugo García: Thanks, I'll try it tomorrow.

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?

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.

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). 

Lisa Kimber: Omg! I was ready to stab myself! Thank you for sharing. So frustrated. You're a lifesaver

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!

Charlotte Braneff: wow, I am so impressed with this idea. I will be trying this this weekend. I'll comment Monday with my results

gotlucky6972: how did u let it get this dirty, haha..dang

charles grubb: You're pool is infested with algae Put chlorine shock and senkinsweet and natinal clarifier and regular clarifier And hth pool start of a maidens kit and vacuum well I'm going to subscribe to your Chanel And bye bye 

Spencer whited: Thanks so much

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

samnanez: What exactly is it that you are using to vacuum the pool? How are you doing whatever it is you are doing? 

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 ?

jomo seventyseven: sink and swim...dipcrap

jomo seventyseven: tear down the intex and buy a pool.

DaGhostOfOldTomJoad: What setting do have your pump to?. Waste? Flush?

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 

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?

cossjuan1: good idea it worked and i didn't loose much water 100 galls maybe

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?
