    Intex 14'x42" vacuum

    When I got my first AGP it was a summer escapes that came with a poll and vacuum attachment(crappy but worked). Well that pool started to break down so we got a Intex this year and noticed it didnt come with any of those accessories. What do you all use for a vacuum? I also saw an Intex auto vac on amazon but is it worth it?

    Re: Intex 14'x42" vacuum

    Here is a thread on that cleaner, I am getting one mostly due to that review. Pump does need to be strong enough as that seems to be the main complaint about it (also people trying to hook it to the wrong place, it is a into the pool jet cleaner, not a real vacuum that goes back to the filter). I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner
    somewhere around 6,800 gal 18 x 4 foot round Intex Ultra Frame AG, finished filling August 29, 2013. toy pump w/ "A" cartridge up and running next day --- July 2015 upgraded to Krystal Clear 3000 GPH pump and 16" sand filter --- May 2016 Intex auto cleaner and in July salt system and Hayward skimmer

    Pair the Lil shark with an in line Canister and this setup is way better!!
