    Barracuda pool cleaner HELP!!

    Today I received a barracuda pool cleaner thunking it would relieve me of my weekly duty of sweeping the pool. My pool is a 24 foot agp that doesnt have a very level bottom. I bought this one because of a recommendation from another thread because they said it would clean uneven floors the best. it will go over the dips in the floor and completely miss them. I would have thought it would at least jusr suck the dust off the floor but no. I have tried to adjust the suction, and it is getting pleanty now, but it still wont get the unlevel parts. I almost think I need a cleaner that has bristles tall enough to dip into the crevices and stir it up. does anybody have any suggestions?

    i think most any cleaner is going to have issues with unlevel floors. When you say "dips" are you meaning like dents in the floor or what? I have 2 such dents in my new pool floor, and I have to hit them with a brush, my barracuda wont get all the dirt out of them either. it cleans everything else just fine though.
