First I'm glad I found this site, thank you.
My wife and I just purchased a home here in Cave Creek, AZ and inherited the pool that came with the house. The folks that lived here previously had a pool service, so the pool looked clean anytime we saw it prior to closing. The pool is inground, egg shaped, 6 feet at the deepend and one skimmer and no pool cleaner. I would like to clean this myself but not ready to buy the robot style cleaner.
Is it a simple matter of buying a hose and some sort of gadget that will go into the skimmer so I can suck the debris off the bottom? Any recommendation of a simple cleaning "kit" or do I just piece the rig together, or some other economical idea?
Thank you very much.
