how can i reduce pressure in the vacuum hose?

Postby Joanne » Sat 08 Jul, 2006 20:12

While trying to vacuum the pool, the pressure in the hose is so high it is impossible to move- it adheres to the bottom I've tried reducing the prime, turning off the pump, etc. How can i reduce the pressure in the hose? :? Thanks for your help

I have the same problem. I have posted it on here and no one has answered. Did you find a solution?

Go down to your local pool supplies shop and ask for a "Speed Control Valve" for your hose. It will let you adjust the suction speed at vacum head..
