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

Replaced the pump in my above ground pool as it wasn't pushing out enough pressure for the vacuum now I have thick looking stuff at the bottom I don't think the auto vacuum will be able to move it.?

Have you used clarifier or flculent at any stage to clear the pool water. If you have the thick looking stuff is the clarifier or floculant settled on the bottom. The pool pump will pump this stuff only it is important not to put it through the filter as it will block it up in no time. Gently hand vacuum it to waste.
