Hello! I recently moved into a new home with a 23k gallon vinyl in ground pool. I am eager to maintain it myself but do have a pool service on hand if needed. I'm still wrapping my head around the chemistry but for now everything is cool. The pool was very well maintained by the previous owner (or the people she paid a fortune to for maintenance).
My main issue right now is a small amount of debris at the deep end. We were left with a Polaris cleaner. One person told me it needed a 600$ "new head", another told us it just doesn't work.
Honestly, once it's warm enough for me to get some time IN the pool, I think I can physically remove it myself. It's twigs and leaves. But for now, it's really irritating my husband that it's there.
I really don't want to spend 600 bucks on ANYTHING right now, frankly, as it's just not a huge amount of debris. What are some other options...manual vac? I guess I'm wondering what a good option is for using every once in awhile that won't break the bank. Thanks! This forum has been so helpful!
