Shut off the filter to allow the DE powder to settle at the pool bottom, preventing recirculation and cloudiness.

Connect the Vacuum Assembly

Attach the pool hose to the vacuum assembly and submerge it in the pool, connecting the other end to the skimmer to build pressure.

Direct Water Flow

Connect another hose to the release valve opening near the pool bottom, directing water flow to the nearest drain in your backyard.

Adjust Settings and Vacuum

Set the release valve to backwash, then turn on the filter and slowly vacuum the pool to avoid stirring up debris

Vacuum in Increments

Vacuum the pool gradually, allowing DE to settle between sessions for thorough removal.
