This is my first post so if I've left anything out I'll be glad to clarify!
I was given an older model Tiger Shark robotic pool cleaner. It hasn't been used in several years so I don't want to sink a whole lot of money into it until I'm sure it works properly. I downloaded the manual from the internet and from what I can tell it is just a basic model. I had no issues removing and cleaning the filters. The brushes have a sticky feel to them that only comes off my fingers using soap...not just water alone. I'm not sure if this is from being stored without cleaning or just a breakdown of the material over time, or a combination of both.
Is it possible to clean the brushes to remove the stickiness? If so, how? As I said I have to use soap to remove the stickiness from my fingers so I definitely don't want to put this thing into my pool and have a mess on the liner.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide!!
