    Do Kreepy Krawley type vacs really work reliably?

    I have an older 21,200 gal VL IG pool. Has a hopper deep end with an exit ladder, cut out steps in the shallow end, and one skimmer and one return. Had a main drain in the deep end but it went bad a few years back so I plugged it. With just the one return I am not getting great circulation...

    Ok to leave robot in the pool?

    Strictly from a product longevity concern, is it ok to leave a robotic cleaner in the pool 24/7, removing only when closing for the winter?

    Solar Heating and Suction Driven Pool cleaners

    Suction side automatic pool vacs for IG pools

    Mark, perhaps the 4x suction side is new since you bought yours? http://www.thepoolcleaner.com/4xpoolcleaner.html They say it's for larger pools. I have emailed them asking for a brochure and list of online retailers, and if the 2x or 4x is best for my pool. I imagine the 2x is plenty...

    Suction side automatic pool vacs for IG pools

    For those with the poolcleaner: Do you have the 2x or 4x model? How large is your pool? How long does it take to clean your pool? Where did you buy it and if I can ask what did it cost? Thanks :)
