    Suction Cleaner & Vacuum Head for PebbleSheen?

    Good morning!

    We are in the market for a vacuum head attachment to hook up to our filter/pump for occasional manual cleaning, and possibly as new automatic suction cleaner (the one we have may be on its last leg). We just put in PebbleSheen, so we have a few weeks before we'd start using the automatic cleaner. Any recommendations? Any types we should stay away from because we have PebbleSheen? Thanks!

    I would buy a vinyl head and use it for the first few months. It has brushes instead of wheels. Wheels can dig into soft plaster. You don't want to end up like this: New pool plaster scratched

    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!

    I like my ThePoolCleaner. The wheels are rubber and I do not think there is any chance of damaging a pebble surface.
    There is a new variant of it now available from Hayward since they procured ThePoolCleaner.
