Hayward Pool Vac Service Tips
The vacuum hose is a vital part of the operation of the Hayward pool vac cleaning system. Having the proper length of hose and correct water flow are key ingredients to a clean pool. The video below provides an excellent description on how to connect vacuum hose to the Hayward pool vac.

When installing vacuum hose there is an important aspect you need to be aware of.
The hose must be able to reach the farthest point in the pool plus have an additional 2 lengths of hose for efficient cleaning.

Once the proper length of hose is installed the next step is to ensure there is ample water suction through the hose/pool vac. The best way to determine and set the correct water flow in the vac system is by using an inline vacuum gauge (as pictured below) to test and set the correct vacuum.

To test and set the correct vacuum in the suction line, separate the hose at one of the connections then insert the gauge and reconnect the hoses. Turn the vacuum pump on and ensure the vacuum gauge reads 12 - 15 lbs of pressure. Adjust the pressure as needed at the corresponding control valve.
In Arizona, vacuum hose is subjected to extended sunshine which accelerates plastic deterioration. It's a good idea to inspect the hose every 3 - 6 months for cracking and splitting.
