Hello, and thanks as always for all the great info.
I did not open my own pool last year but plan on doing so this year. Throughout the season I was able to maintain a clean plaster pool through brushing and a Polaris 360. I have a loop-loc cover so it will be definitely not be spotless when the cover comes off. My questions are:
1) Do I need a manual vacuum for pool opening? If so, any particular recommendations?
2) Throughout the season, am I doing myself a disservice by not using a manual vacuum occasionally and relying solely on the brush/polaris?
