    Pool Broom

    We have a Polaris and it works great except for the steps and the seat area. I would like to purchase a pool hand held cleaner to quickly clean up the steps and seat. I think I have seen some that are battery operated. Any suggestions on a product that would work?

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: Pool Broom

    I have an Aqua Broom and it works pretty decently. I am quite pleased with it. It runs on 5 D batteries (the really big ones). It sucks stuff up pretty darn well. We just finally got done setting up our Intex pool today, and before the kids were able to jump in with me, I used it to clean everything up from the middle of the pool as we have a tree nearby that loves to shed.

    Carly, do you have the extension pole for the aqua broom? From what I read is it is only 2' long. I would like to have an extension pole but not sure what pole attaches to the vacuum. And also does it pick up sand and small dirt particles?

    Re: Pool Broom

    This Aqua Broom looks awesome!

    Two questions:

    1) Will a regular extension pole fit it/work with it?

    2) How is it on batteries? Do you find you need to replace them really often?

    Re: Pool Broom

    From what I read the batteries last a long time. One review the guy said he hasn't changed them in 5 years. Others say it lasts the whole swimming season. I'm wondering the same thing on the extension pole.

    Re: Pool Broom

    Okay, I just ordered the Aqua Broom from Amazon. It's on sale for 33.00. I have an extension pole, and even if it doesn't fit, I'm only 5' 1" tall, so stooping a little if the pole doesn't fit it shouldn't be a big deal.

    Picked one up too, according to the reviews should be perfect for my hot tub and spot cleaning the pool, plus it will give the kids something to do!

    Re: Pool Broom

    Used mine yesterday. Works really good. Put it on a long pole and my 3 year old had a blast getting the bugs out of the bottom of the pool. Bought it for the hot tube and it worked as good as I hoped it would. No problems turning on or off at all. Easy to remove bag from the bottom of the broom. Sucks up pine needles to!

    Re: Pool Broom

    Got my Aqua Broom and love it! I does come with a piece you put on it so you can use a regular extension pole.

    It came with two fine mesh bags so you can get the finer stuff and works great.

    I did have some trouble trying to turn it off with wet hands, plus I'm pushing 55 and have arthritis. First try I had to have my husband turn it off, but then figured out that getting out of the pool, removing my extension pole and tuning the unit upside down, so it's handle is on the ground I can get enough leverage to turn it off myself.

    Re: Pool Broom

    I also recieved my Aqua Broom. It works great on my steps and the other areas that are hard for the Polaris to reach. I also recieved 2 additional filter bags, but could not figure out how to use those in place of the attached filter.

    Thanks for the advice to purchase an Aqua Broom!!

    Re: Pool Broom

    I think the fine mesh bag works in conjunction with, not instead of, the standard mesh filter.

    Re: Pool Broom

    Thanks Michael, that makes sense. I guess you just put it over the other bag so it picks up fine particles that get past the first filter.

    I used mine again today. It is great!!

    So finally got around to contact Watertechcorp, they wanted me to pack it up, ship it to them they would decide if they wanted to repair it (water in battery compartment and motor i think not) or replace it then ship it back to me, couldn't tell me how long it would take.....so i chatted with amazon.com and they are sending me a new one that will get here on Thursday.....i can ship my old one when it gets here as it still works intermittently.

    I really like using it, perfect for the hot tub and good for spot cleaning the pool with some goggles on....

    Re: Pool Broom

    I've had the Aqua Broom for about 3 years and love it. Best small purchase ($50) I've ever made....if it fails, I will immediately replace it. I've only replaced the batteries twice (the second time was recently). Mine only came with one bag, but I use my skimmer sock to pick up smaller particles. In fact, my main vacuum is on the blink and I vacuumed my entire pool last week with my Aqua Broom. I highly recommend this product.
