Vacuum to waste??

vacuum to waste refers to moving the valve on the filter to waste position and running the vacuum. This pumps the vacuumed water out of the pool.
What kind of pool and filter do you have ? sounds like it takes a cartridge is it above ground? If thats the case it may not be able to bypass the filter and directly discard vacuumed water.
