Pool Vacuum Hoses serves as the connection between your flexible vacuum head and your pool’s skimmer box via a vacuum plate.
Vacuum hoses straight from their packaging may have a little bit of “coil memory” to them causing them to coil around the first few times that you use them. This is normal and there’s nothing to worry about.
To get the best efficiency when manually cleaning the pool, make sure that your pool vacuum hoses have no leaks in them or damage. While small leaks are okay (since you’re going to be the one manually pushing and moving the telepole around) it’s still recommended to replace your vacuum hoses at the first sign of damage to ensure that you’re getting the maximum suction power from your skimmer boxes.
Tip: Get only the hose length that’s enough for your pool to avoid tangles and to maximize the suction power from your skimmer boxes. More unneeded hose length = more wasted suction power.
