In my POOLBLASTER MAX I tried ladies stockings (my wife was curious how her 'supply' seemed to be diminishing) to pick up fine dust/dead algae....but they were no better than the standard bags (fine particles went straight through). I tried really thicker types with very limited success but they clogged up so fast (within a minute). At my wits end now. Don't really use the PBM anymore and have to rely on VERY slow manual sweeping and scooping! It's a $250 ornament!
