I've had my pool for about 2 years now and am looking to buy my first cleaner. I've been doing the manual vacuuming and sweeping to keep it clean, but now I'd like to have something do more of the grunt work for me.
I have a few questions for the brain trust here:
- Anyone have any experience with Zodiax MX6? I think for the size of my pool, I don't need the bigger MX8 (nor the added expense).
- How do others use their cleaner? Do you leave it in all of the time (taking out for swimming) or do you only put in for a few hours when needed?
- If you only put it in as needed, how often do you put it in and how long do you leave it in? I'm thinking of once a week, when I'd normally vacuum my pool manually and instead put the vacuum in and come back a few hours later. Or I'd put it in during a dust storm and let the vacuum suck up all of the dust from the AZ summer monsoon storms, etc.
