I have a 16' x 32' IG vinyl liner pool. 3.5' shallow end and 8' deep end, standard design. For suction I have one skimmer and one main drain. I only have 1 return that is in the shallow end, paralleling the 16' sidewall.
Does anyone have experience with the suction side kreepy krauly type pool vacs in an IG pool they can share? Does it do a good job? Can it be hooked into the main drain so I don't lose my skimmer action which cleans the surface of the water while the pump is running (currently 10hrs daily)?
Any input would be greatly appreciated. These things are cheap enough between $2-350, and I definitely don't want to get into robotics. If these work as advertised, they have my interest. If not, I'll keep doing the manual thing
