    is there such a thing?

    we have a Shark and while it does a good job of cleaning, it doesn't get everything. is there a hand operated cleaner that you can use to manually get what you want - kind of like a vacuum cleaner, I guess???

    http://watertechcorp.com/products-catfish.htm I have one. Works okay. Not good for the whole pool, but it will grab the odds and ends that fall in immediately after you put away the hose.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Why not just connect your skimmer pole to the shark and move it around manually to pick up the debris it doesn't get on it's own?
