SKIMMER SYSTEM Pool Maintenance Kit Instructions Works with SFS & RS Skimmer Filter Systems Only PARTS LIST 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. VACUUM BODY LEAF SKIMMER 5-PIECE POLE W/END CAP HOSE VACUUM ADAPTER (INCLUDED WITH SKIMMER FILTER SYSTEM) ASSEMBLY 1. Assemble the 5-Piece Pole (3) by inserting the crimped ends into the round ends. Make sure that the section with the hole through the side is at the far end, and the end cap is at the opposite end. 2. After the pole is assembled, it can be attached to either the Vacuum (1) or the Leaf Skimmer (2). To attach it to either one, squeeze the white spring pins in, while inserting it into the 5-Piece Pole. 3. To install the vacuum adapter turn off your pump, remove the weir part and place in a safe place because you need to reinstall it after vacuuming so that your skimmer operates properly. 4. Next attach your vacuum to it’s handle and place the swivel end of the Hose (4) on the Vacuum Unit (1) and lower vacuum into the pool. OPERATION 1. Use the skimmer to skim debris off the surface of the water and the vacuum to clean the pool bottom. 2. Place your vacuum hose into the pool (it will ﬂoat somewhat), keep the remaining end near the diverter ﬁtting, now turn on the pump and hold the hose up to the diverter ﬁtting ﬁlling the hose, this primes the hose with water pushing out the air. The hose will sink as it ﬁlls. Now that the hose is ﬁlled, turn off the pump again and slide the vacuum adapter into the skimmer opening and attach the hose to the adapter. Now start your pump, keeping the vacuum under water at all times during this process. Now you can move your vacuum along the bottom cleaning your pool. Never use the hose alone without the vacuum attached, liner damage could occur. Never vacuum with the strainer basket or ﬁlter removed as pump blockage and damage will occur. Never leave hose hanging out of the pool because a siphon can occur draining your pool. 3. When you ﬁnish vacuuming turn off the pump once more. Slide the vacuum adapter out of the skimmer and reinstall the wier back into place. Remove the hose and vacuum, draining the hose back into the pool as you raise it out of the water. Remove the strainer basket, empty and rinse it, also remove your ﬁlter cartridge and clean or replace it as necessary. 084-120179 Should you encounter any problems, contact the Customer Service Representative/Parts Department at (800) 813-0206 from 8 AM to 5 PM Mon. thru Fri.
