Intex Above Ground Pool Vacuums: How to Assemble, Operate and Store Them
One of the hardest things about operating a pool, specifically an above ground pool, is the job of vacuuming it. An Intex above ground pool is a kind of swimming pool that is constructed above ground (hence its name) and can be disassembled when you see fit, which is most often at the end of the hot season. Intex manufactures this kind of pool, which they have dubbed Easy Set Pools. These type come in several sizes, and naturally, the larger the pool, the more of a challenge it is to keep clean.
Of course, Intex understands this important need of consumers, thus with an Intex above ground pool comes with many different types of Intex pool supplies. Some of the very much in-demand cleaning tools are the Intex above ground pool and the Intex above ground pool pump. Both are tailor-made for cleaning Intex above ground swimming pools, and work incredibly well. An Intex Swimming pool leaf vacuum, more specifically, cleans the sides and bottom of the pool by sucking up unwanted debris and dirt, and maintains a clean pool. The apparatus cleans in a way in which the debris in the pool is captured inside of a filter net on the bottom of the pool cleaner. The Intex pool vacuum that is connected to the filter pump serves to circulate the water through the pool cleaner. It works in a closed system without air, and thus ensures that a generous amount of pressure is involved, and that the pool is cleaned in a meticulous fashion on a in a short time period, depending, of course, on how often you intend for your pool to be cleaned.
An Intex vacuum is relatively simple to assemble. Once you open the package, there are three vacuum shaft pieces that will all fit together. the next step is to attach the Intex vacuum head to the handle. Then, find the shaft that has round holes in it, and attach the head to it. It is not necessary to screw these pieces together manually, and you only need to hear them click to know that they are properly attached. Next you must align the springs to the holes. Note that everything will fit into place because the holes are already pre-drilled. The last step is to connect the bag that captures the debris from the pool floor onto the vacuum head that you have attached to the shaft. Simply make sure that the debris bag is lined up properly with the vacuum head. Use any piece of knot or string to attach the bag in place, but make sure to do so in such a way that it can still be removed for disposal.
Typically, an Intex vacuum is for cleaning the sides and bottom of the swimming pool. A second necessity for completing the cleaning process is a standard pool vacuum hose, which will serve to power the suction mechanism of the Intex pool vacuum. It should be simple to connect the hose to the vacuum, and should take you no more than a minute to do.
When you have connected all the proper parts, connect your vacuum hose to the vacuum head mentioned previously, making sure that each component is well aligned, otherwise it will be difficult to remove the hose from the vacuum.
Next, place the end of the hose inside the pool filter by threading it onto the water inlet port, which can easily be found in the vacuum end of the apparatus. Once the pump is turned on and the proper degree of pressure is achieved, you can start the cleaning process. Use the vacuum end to slowly vacuum all the dirt into the bottom of the pool. Feel free to repeat the process if necessary to be sure that the pool is thoroughly cleaned. simply dump out what is collected in the debris collection bag whenever it fills up.
Proper storage of the vacuum is easy. Simply be certain that the bag that collects the debris is emptied of its contents properly when it is already full. Use cold, clean water to rinse the bag. Let it dry under the sun before storing it so as to inhibit the growth of mold. Also, make sure to allow the interior of the hose to thoroughly dry so as to keep mold from growing inside of it. However, be sure not to let the hose dry in the sun, because doing so will make it brittle, and thus damage it. You can find garden hose hooks sold on the market that will certainly be of use in storing an Intex above ground pool vacuum.
