    Pic of bottom of S200 series cleaner

    Can someone post a pic of the bottom of an S200 series cleaner? I have a Nautilus CC and the little doors on the bottom get filled with needles. It's a PIA to remove the doors and pull out all the needles with my big sausage fingers.

    A TFP Success Story

    Moved into this house 1/2017. First time pool owner and didn’t know any better, so we used tabs and a floater for most of last summer. Then I stumbled across TFP.
