    Is there a pool vacuum that's amazing?

    I have the new Polaris robot. Works great! Wish I bought it years ago. Check out the pool cleaners sections. A lot of good choices and most are well worth the $1000 price tag.

    The chlorine smell and the cloudiness are from combined chlorine. Get some liquid chlorine. For reference I had this a couple weeks ago 30k gallon pool. I was out of town so I did a one time slam. I added 12 gallons of chlorine and left the pool running for a couple days. Are you sure the...

    Need Input on Dolphin Active Robotic Cleaners

    I’m not sure why everyone loves Maytronics so much. I demo’d the s200 vs the Polaris p965iq. The Polaris did a much better job. I don’t have any connectivity issues with the Polaris.
