Hi. I am looking at getting an above-ground pool vacuum cleaner, preferably one that does not connect to the pumps. I've had my pool for 3 years and am tired of using the manual vacuum cleaner. It's hard to manuver and I always manage to get air into the pump. I also have one of those lady bugs and they don't work too good either. My kids will jump into the water with their goggles and say that they still see a lot of hair and dead bugs on the bottom of the pool -- and that is after the bug has been in the water for 3 hours.
I've read that some folks on this board like the Aquabot Pool Rover. Any other recommendations?
