Step 2

Connect the connector hoses by pushing the male ends to the female ends and twisting. Each end is labeled and will only fit in the opposite end. Make sure the gray lead hose is at the end; this hose connects directly to the AquaBug head.

Step 3

Submerge the AquaBug head into the water and wait for the bubbles to stop, which means all the air has escaped. While holding the head underwater, connect the lead gray hose to the head. Once connected, submerge the entire hose and head to ensure all bubbles and air are purged.

Step 4

Connect the opposite end of the hose to the skimmer. Turn the filter system on and allow the AquaBug to clean the pool.
