I have read many of the reviews for cleaners on here, but it seems many people have a booster pump or dedicated line for their cleaner. We just have our skimmer (in the middle of the pool) and one return on each side. Our pool is an inground with vinyl liner with some sharp angles - 90 degrees from bottom to side in shallow and about 45 degrees in the deep end with a long slope from shallow to deep...
That being said, we are looking for something to help us keep the pool clean...and not break the bank!!
We have two huge trees over the pool dropping leaves, the little helicopters (seeds), and little worm like things (seeds?) in the spring. We just bought a Pool Skim but haven't received it yet. Hoping that will help keep things clean on top. We want something to help pick up dirt and possibly the leaves that make it to the bottom.
I looked into Polaris ATV F7, Zodiac Barracuda MX8, Barracuda G3, The Kreepy Krauly Krusiser, and The Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel Suction Cleaner.
It almost feels like a gamble on which to get. Will a suction side cleaner work on a pool our size (18x38 - 36,000gal) Also, can I connect a leaf catcher to those so they don't clog our filter basket?
Thanks!! This website has been a huge help to us so far!
