Hi, this is Anthony with Pool Trooper University. Today we’re going to talk about sinking your hose, and then also retrieving it after you’re done with vacuuming. The first thing I’m going to do is go ahead and lock my vac head in. If it doesn’t fit, you have to extend your pole a little bit. Mine was fine, so I don’t have to worry about that. Go ahead and drop it down. You want to set it up next to your skimmer because you’re going to have to plug it in. This one is a bit of a challenging one because there’s a step right here, so I have to actually have to stick my hose over here and then bring it over here to the skimmer. I’m going to grab my hose, take my connector, drop it in my tin bucket so I don’t lose it. I’m going to drop my hose in, plug it into my vac kit, and then drop it down here on the floor of the pool. Extend your pole out as long as you need it so you can control it. I always settle it right in here so I have both hands free. Once that’s done, we’ll go ahead and start sinking our hose just by spinning it. The key is spinning it with your wrist (01:00).

Once you’re done, if you’ve done it correctly and it’s full of water, when you hold this part just above the water, the water will spray out. We’re going to go ahead and bring that over to the skimmer, make sure I don’t lose my vac head, and then pop it in. Then you can begin to vacuum the pool. It’s that simple. Now we’ve finished vacuuming the pool. We’re going to go ahead and get ready to pull our vacuum out. Once again, this pool doesn’t have a screen cage, but you do want to be careful in case it does. You want to drop your pole all the way down. What you’re going to want to do is pull your vac kit out, so you’ve got this straight (01:48 unclear). Go ahead and unplug your hose here, start it out with the skimmer. When you’re retrieving your hose, you want to wind it nice and tight so it will be ready for the next one (02:00). As you lift the hose, you want to curl your wrist to make the hose go where you want it to go. That’s the key for it not to go where it wants to go. Then you slide in, you’re going to retrieve your hose connector, which is always in my bucket, reconnect it, and then place it right back on top of your tile brush. That’s how you reconnect your hose. If you have questions, see your coach.
