    Bought a Robo-Kleen that broke after 2 uses!
    Purchased a manual vacuum. Am I crazy?

    The plastic on the blue triangle manual vacuum cracked.
    My husand returned it and came home with a BlueDevil B5501C replacement.

    Using the manual vacuum is certainly a normal thing to do. Most basic pool packages come included with a manual vac.

    I still would look at getting an automatic cleaner to make things easier.

    If you need help getting it to work just let me know.
