    Vacuum for AG intex pool, what about this skooba product?

    Vacuum for AG intex pool, what about this skooba product? The reviews seemed to be mixed, but if you are careful with it it seems that most people are satisfied.

    Does anyone have one? Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Skooba-Vacuum-int ... uum+skooba
    Thanks - John

    Re: Vacuum for AG intex pool, what about this skooba product

    From what I've read on here and my dealing with my own Intex, my biggest problem has been the amount of water flow or suction. My intex came with the 1500 gph filter/pump and it doesn't seem to create the flow needed to vacuum the pool. I ordered the Intex 2650 sand filter from Amazon yesterday in hopes of solving that problem. I plan to use the intex vacuum that came with the deluxe pool maintance kit. It's just like the ones you can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot.

    I read the reviews on the Skooba vacuum as well and thought they were 50/50 at best, which led me away from it. I have read a lot of people like the Hayward Aqua Bug automatic pool cleaner, but again you've got to have the pump power for it to work.

    That 2650 is pretty nice for the price. But since I have the 15 x 48 I thought it would be overkill besides the fact that the filter would cost as much as the pool did But if it works as well as everyone says it might be worth it.

    That walmart deal is about $230 then a $30 ecard + tax + shipping, but you should be able to grab it off ebay for 200 w/free shipping.

    Here in Alabama, Academy Sports carries the smaller sand filter in stock if you wanted to purchae it off the shelf. Around $160-170 I think.
