If you have the regular set up that includes a skimmer, pump and filter then you don't have to waste any water. Get an lid-to-hose adapter, that fits over the skimmer basket at your pool supply store. Fill the hose with water and attach it to the lid. Place the lid inside the skimmer over the skimmer basket, then vacuum to your hearts content. Pool Masters

How do you vacuum an above ground pool?

Before vacuuming an above ground pool you should make certain the water level is mid-way up the skimmer mouth (opening).To manually vacuum an above ground pool, typically you:Insert the vacuum head onto the end of a telescopic pole.Attach one end of the vacuum hose to the vacuum headRemove the skimmer lid and skimmer basketIf you have a vacuum plate, install it.While holding onto the telescopic pole, allow submerse the vacuum head and let the vacuum hose float on top of the pool waterStarting at the end of the vacuum head closest to the vacuum head start feeding the hose down a foot or so into the water.Continue to do this until the air is out of the vacuum hose.Cup one hand over the end of the vacuum hose while putting it into the skimmer either on the vacuum plate or the opening at the bottom of the skimmer.The pump may lose prime but will generally pick prime back up within 10 - 15 seconds.
