    Have polaris in pool - how do I clean spa ?

    New pool owner
    Simple crazy question

    previous owner left no hose for manual vacuuming the spa or pool

    how do I get the debris and stuff out of bottom of the spa?
    the polaris 3900 hose isnt long enough

    so much to learn

    Go buy a hose and attachment. That is how I clean the dirt out I can't get with the net.

    Use a net for the big stuff and just run the spa in spa mode. That should get any dirt to the filter without any need to vacuum.

    I use a Water Tech Catfish handheld vacuum for the spa. Costs about 100 bucks and works great. I have found that just running the spa does not get the fine dirt from the bottom. Between my robotic cleaner and the Catfish my pool is really easy to clean.

    gary300 thanks for that - I googled it and it helped me realize what was in a bucket in the shed covered in rags and dirt

    Its an old pool blaster - have to try to find the wide blue head for it but it works

    This site helps again
    The condition of it and the stuff it was with had me thinking it was dead but
    the
    Water Tech® Pool Blaster Eclipse

    works well

    thanks guys
