    Cheap, Temparary Vac for IG pool


    My in-floor cleaning system is resting while I wait another week or so for some parts to come in the mail.

    I do have some debris in the deep end (mostly introduced by my spaniels), plus some pollen residue. It's not a lot but I'd like to vac it up rather than wait for the parts for the cleaner.

    I have never vacuumed the pool before because of the in-floor system.

    Is there an inexpensive vac from either Walmart of the small lps you can recommend?

    I do have a hose and a pole already - perhaps i should just send a child in with the hose?

    If the hose fits into the skimmer and you already have a pole, just go to Lowes or Home Depot or even the <gasp> pool store and pick up a head for twenty bucks.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
