    Best Vacuum With In Floor Cleaners

    Hi All - Im looking for advice on the best vacuum to get with our in floor cleaning system. It works well for normal dirt, but I live in AZ, and when we get dust storms with lots of pieces of sand/rock, the cleaners can't effectively remove them.

    The infloor cleans from 8pm-6am, so my thought is to get a robotic vacuum (eyeing the Nautilus) and running that sometime around 9am-12pm during the day. Does anyone have any advice for vacuums that would work with an in floor cleaning system?

    If the in-floors don't work after 10 hours of use, personally I would just ditch them for a robotic. Much more energy efficient. Once my cleaner bites the dust, I am seriously looking at a Dolphin DX3s. The DX series has a weekly timer so they can be left in the pool to run all week.

    IntelliScan Technology analyzes your pool surface to make cleaning as efficient as possible.

    Weekly timer schedules the DX3S to automatically clean your pool at your convenience!

    In Phoenix, I recommend the Hayward AquaNaut 200 (2 wheel) or the 450 model (4 wheel) suction cleaner. It is based on the old Poolvergnuegen technology and usually comes with as much as a $100 consumer rebate. It has variable vanes in it that allows debris to pass right through and not get clogged. It is a great cleaner. Great technology. The four wheel unit stays low to the pool floor and also goes right over main drains without getting stuck.

    That is a good cleaner but not a self powered robotic.

    i think infloors work pretty well for dust in phx, i think the issue is debris from limbs. at least thats my problem. i manually rake the leaves when they pile into a corner. not east coast leaves, more like mesquite leaves.
