Vacuuming large debris through skimmer without using a leaf trap.

A leaf trap has a bag inside for catching debris and is placed between the end of your pool vacuum hose and the skimmer. It keeps leaves from clogging your skimmer line when you vacuum.

It's OK to not to use a leaf trap as long as you are vacuuming small things that can't clog the skimmer line, but never go without it when sucking out acorns, sticks, large quantities of leaves, etc. This can lead to a service call to unclog the skimmer line.

No quiten las hojas (don't remove the leaves). No saquen las hojas (don't take the leaves out).

Remove it and blow through to see if it is clogged. Rather than seeing if it is clogged just replace it to make sure.
