Are you enjoying an inflatable swimming pool for the summer?  Chances are you are not enjoying the dirt that collects at the bottom of it.  Here is how to inexpensively build your own handheld pool vacuum that will make cleaning up dirt a breeze.

Step 1: Supplies Needed

Plastic tubing - at least 1" diameter, length will vary depending on your pool size
Plastic funnel
Rubber band
Knee-high pantyhose
Hot glue gun
<p>This looks like something I'm going to put to make. I will change it up and use the extra parts I have from a Kirby vacuum cleaner that's broken. I'll use the hose with the 2 ft. straight plastic attachment at one end adding the wood floor cleaning attachment to that. Sometimes being a single mom comes in handing when you're trying to come up with an inexpensive way to make things happen. Thank you for this!</p>
We tried it for the heck of it. It worked, not that great lol but it worked.
Glad you tried it. I've found that to get the best results you have to first make sure all of the air bubbles are out of the filter pump.
Wow! Simple idea. Why didn't I think about it? <br> Good job!
