Location Of Vacuum Points

The location of vacuum points in a swimming pool is a crucial aspect of pool design and maintenance. 

Vacuum points, also known as skimmer boxes or inlets, are strategically placed openings where pool cleaning equipment, such as vacuum cleaners or automatic pool cleaners, can connect to remove debris and maintain water clarity. 

Here’s a closer look at the significance of vacuum point placement:

Efficient Cleaning

Properly positioned vacuum points ensure efficient cleaning of the entire pool. They should be strategically located to allow for complete coverage of the pool’s surface, walls, and floor.

This helps remove dirt, leaves, and other debris, keeping the pool clean and inviting.

Water Circulation

Vacuum points also contribute to water circulation in the pool.

They work in conjunction with other pool circulation systems, such as skimmers and return jets, to ensure that water is filtered, sanitized, and evenly distributed throughout the pool.


Vacuum points should be easily accessible for pool maintenance. They are typically installed around the pool’s perimeter, allowing for convenient attachment of pool cleaning equipment.

Accessibility ensures that pool cleaning can be done regularly without obstacles or challenges.

Aesthetic Considerations

The placement of vacuum points should also take into account the pool’s aesthetics. They should be positioned discreetly to minimize their visual impact on the pool’s overall design.

Some pool owners choose decorative covers or lids to blend vacuum points seamlessly with the pool’s surroundings.
