    Cleaning dirt and debri off bottom of pool

    I am constantly battling dirt or something on the bottom of my pool. I purchased a pool blaster vacuum last year which was junk. The pool came with a thing that hooks to Waterhose which picks up leaves but not the dirt. Anyone have any suggestions on what works??? Thanks!!!!

    I've been very happy with how well my pool rover jr. picks up dirt and even fine slit. My only gripe is the cord will twist up.

    I purchased a Pentair Lil Shark and have been seriously impressed with the cleaning ability. Not sure about compatibility with Intex though - some fittings may need to be modified?

    You'll need to modify your intex with a skimmer and better pump/filter to sweep the pool if you have not done so already.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
