    Brushing

    How often do I need to brush? Daily, weekly?

    Also, do I need to brush the bottom of the pool if I am running an Polaris 360?

    Once a week ought to be enough unless you live next to a field and the farmer is out plowing.

    Even when the pool looks perfect, it's amazing how much fine stuff is sticking to the walls. It's the aquatic equivalent of dusting the blinds in your house!

    If the polaris gets the floor clean, I wouldn't bother brushing it. Although brushing the floor is loads easier than the walls.

    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!

    That actually answers another question I had too...I always find at least minute amounts of dust on the floor when i brush. I was hoping this was normal.

    Thanks Richard!

    That's funny Richard because I actually find the walls easier to brush, but I'm using a wall whale now. Lol
