    Recent thoughts on suction-powered brooms?

    I am not looking for a permanent robot, or kreepy. I have a vac port in the pool and the valve upstream to activate it. I am just looking for something to attach to my pole to get out dirt after bad dust storms. No batteries or moving brushed needed.

    If you have good or bad experiences with any particulars, let me know! I have a feeling that with no real moving parts. it might not matter too much.

    Up until now that is how I clean my pool. I attach a hose to a brush, connect brush to a pole, and connect other end of hose to my skimmer line and vacuum away. I am fortunate that I do not get alot of debris in my pool, so I can get away with a vacuum once or twice week at most...

    For the brief period I did manual vacuuming I went through a couple of different heads. Not much difference. I also purchased a corner brush for the spots where my stairs hit the pool: : Corner Garden
