    Question Trying to ditch my hose vacuum. Any battery Cordless Stick Vacuum recommendations?

    We have a small 15' round AGP. It stays pretty clean except for the bottom (sand, silt, grass, etc.). Typical bottom debris.
    I hate dragging out the hose vacuum for small cleanings. Considering a hoseless cordless vacuum for occasional quick cleaning.
    Any recent product recommendations? Only found old threads when searching.

    I have one for my hot tub, (Aqua Broom) which does ok for the foot well in a small 5x7 ft hot tub, but I would not suggest it for something much larger.

    This works great, but I have only used it for spot cleaning (before my robot). It would be a PITA for a whole pool.

    We use and LOVE our PoolBlaster Max. It is the only vacuum we need now as we refuse to drag out that big bulky hose any more.

    I have the pool blaster max and its good for spot cleaning, but I don't like it for the full pool cleaning. The previous owner bought it a few years ago and its showing its age now. The battery doesn't last very long. I just ordered a new automated cleaner, but I will use this for my spa area.

    The easiest way I learned to use the blaster was to put my snorkel gear on and just float around and spot clean.
