I have a 16x32 IG vinyl pool with a 4' shallow end and 8' deep end. It has 4 returns in the shallow end, 2 of which are stair sweepers. I have a valve that I can turn to switch between the 2 main returns or the stair sweepers or anywhere in between. In the deep end I have 2 skimmers with no control over them. I have no other lines or fittings.
I have a 2 HP Hayward single speed motor and a Hayward de filter. I am trying to figure out if I want to go with a suction side or pressure side vacuum? It seems the polaris 360 and the kreepy krauly are well received here so I would consider either of them. I do not have many trees or anything much around the pool so I need something that will pick up the general dirt that gets into the pool to cut down on my manual vacuuming.
It seems I can use either suction or pressure side, I just don't see much of a difference? I see the suction side will send all the dirt to my filter, which I am fine with. The pressure side seems to contain all the dirt and I would have to clean the bag, and it also seems that it won't pick up the small particles that a suction side would?
Are there other pros and cons to either of these options?
Thanks in advance.
