    Arenson Pool Sweep?????What is this?

    Recently moved to a house with a pool and trying to figure everything out.

    I have an old Arneson Pool sweep pump in the pump house. The intake and outflow pipes (I think) are cut and I can see some cut pipes cemented in the floor. I assume that the pipes from the pump were, at one time, connected to the pipes in the ground. There is also a little nozzle that protrudes from the side of the pool. I've never used it for anything but as a visual marker to help with the water level (probably not its intended purpose).

    Anyhow, what does a pool sweep do? I've looked on this forum and googled, but can't find any picture/video of it in action. Is it worthwhile? If not, is there resale value to the pump?

    Wow, that is an old piece of equipment. They stopped making replacement parts over ten years ago. You can see a picture of the sweep here. It "walked" around the pool blowing debris towards the drain.
