    Small vacuum for spa

    I need something that will clean our inground hot tub. Nothing big and fancy, just something small that I can use when needed. Any suggestions?

    There are some little battery operated ones that you put on the end of your pole that would likely work for what you are looking to do.

    I can not recall the name of the one mentioned on the forum a few times.

    Alternatively, just turn the suction to come from the spa and brush the debris into the drain.

    Re: Small vacuum for spa

    While we originally bought this for our inground pool that have a an autocover yet things still do get in and require a bit of vacuuming out. This works great for us (no dragging out all that heavy pool vacuum tubing, yay!) and we've also used it on our hottub for quick pick ups. Works great so far! Give this a look-

    OK, thank you! So, if I need it for the spa only, I should stick with the catfish?

    Have you looked into the Polaris Spa Wand?
