    AGP Cleaner

    I just purchased my first above ground pool today online. I was wondering about a really good auto pool cleaner. Do you have any recommendations or point me to a forum with this information? I call myself looking for a forum already but didn't find much. Thanks!

    Re: AGP Cleaner

    Thanks Woodyp... I found that forum but thought it was for in ground. Jeffchap, I just purchased a 24'x52" round Quest pool from the pool factory. Pretty nervous about it but we will see how it goes. Didn't purchase any auto cleaner in the package build so looking around.

    I like my Pool Rover Jr as well. What kind of debris does your yard usually have? Do you have a lot of trees nearby?

    Re: AGP Cleaner

    I have a few Oak Trees near by so should be leaves and acorns maybe. I am getting 3 oaks cut down so hopefully will help with the debris somewhat, although I am sure the other trees nearby will still have some get in the pool. I was looking at the pool rover jr and the pool rover plus. May just stick with the Jr though.

    My pool rover jr. does a great job on my pool. Only complaint I have is the cord twisting up.

    Re: AGP Cleaner

    I love my pool rover jr!! I keep the cord from twisting by using pool noodles (I get them from my local Dollar Tree store.) Just cut a slit down one side of the noodle and slide it onto the cord. Use as many as you need!

    We had a PRJ also for many years. It finally died so we got one from Dohenys. Works pretty well. A bit faster than the PRJ and lighter weight

    I have a Lil' Shark & Leaf Canister I purchased off Amazon about 2.25years ago. I have not used a net or had to vacuum my pool since the day I installed them.
