We have a Polaris vac-sweep 380 for our pool. The pool is 18x50 with 24' of deep end (8' deep) I can go out and turn the vac on that hasn't been on in a week and it will clean the pool (bottom, walls, stairs, and safty ledge) in 30-45 min. All I have to do is flip a switch. The only thing I then have to do is skim the bugs and leaves of there are any off the surface of the water.

The collection bag is real easy to clean just turn it inside out and rinse it with the hose.

We have a salt water pool and the vac comes in nice when its time to add salt I dump the salt in and turn the vac on and it moves the water enough to help dissolve the salt faster.

Here is the vac we have.

Are you wanting a auto vac that works on pressure, or suction side?

I thought for sure the first post would have delt with "mine gives the best blowjobs!" I'm dissapointed. When I get a pool I wanna know these things.

x2 holy shit.

I have one with tracks and it does a great job. Its a Smart Pool Scrubber 60.



It does all the things that tt's does. Plug it in, flip the switch and go swimming in a crystal clear pool in an hour. The only thing it doesnt pick up are the larger wallnuts that fall into that pool. I need to cut that tree down.

How long have you had it?

In the market for a robotic type, stupid Barracuda keeps not working reliably and sick of doing it by hand, good way to steal a few hours of a day.

Wanting one that can climb steep walls and not miss any spots.

I have used it exactly half a season. It does great on my steep concrete walls though.
