I have an early model Polaris 3900 Sport that works inconsistently, gets stuck often, and only cleans the pool. I generally brush everything towards the main drain and hope the pump/filter and 3900 eventually pick everything up.
Saw a few posts where folks are draining the spa, then brushing and shopvac cleaning, but I'm looking for pole attached solutions (under $100?) that will allow me to vacuum finger sized leaves, bugs, sand, dirt, and dust from the attached spa, and spot vac the pool as needed.
I've read a bit about garden hose leaf baggers, but wondering about their effectiveness on smaller debris. I'm curious about hose attached skimmer/suction powered options. Also wondering if there's any way to take advantage of either higher pump speeds, or attaching something to the dedicated return line of the booster. Is the Polaris UWF truly "universal" or just for Polaris Automatic cleaners?
