Everything in my pool is working perfectly until I plug in my hose and then I lose suction. I have checked for holes or leaks and found none but replaced hose just in case. I have tried different skimmers, checked the valves were in proper place, filled the hose and tried vac to waste as well as thru filter. Nothing works. Please help me.

Is there normal suction from where you plug in the vacuum hose?
When you connect the hose does the pump basket fill with air?
When you fill the hose with water before vacuuming do you lift it out of the water without sealing the end?
Have you lubricated the pump basket "O" ring with silicone grease?
