I love this thing!
If you have an issue with leaves or other large debris getting into your pool, this thing is the ticket! I accidentally dropped the edge of my winter cover into the pool last year when removing the cover. This resulted in a large amount of leaves being dumped into the bottom of my pool. Ugh! After about 10 passes with my Pool Rover, and barely any leaves removed, I decided to give this a try. It's much quicker and easier than using a net and will pick up a suprising amount of large gunk from the bottom of your pool.
The only downside? If you have fine silt or dirt in your pool, it just flows through the mesh bag and gets stirred around. But this is really made for the big stuff like leaves, sticks, berries, etc.
This has become a part of my spring pool clean-up permanently. It's awesome!

Best Pool Gadget I have ever used !
“This the BEST piece of pool equipment I have ever used. So much so I wish now I had more leaves to get out LOL. Inexpensive SUPER easy to you and it works like a charm. It grabbed up 6 FULL bags from the bottom of my 20 x 40 foot in ground pool in less than 30 minutes. Not sure what others used the tennis or ping pong balls for there was no need for me. And as far as one reviewer writing that it was “cumbersome to setup and use “; I don’t possibly see how this could be. Attach your pole, your hose and pop on the bag and turn on the water and go. What could be easier than that? For those that had a hard time handling it, you may have had the hose turned on to high making it hard to push against the current you create. It does not need to be on very high at all. Turn it lower and it works like a charm.

Can't Get 2 Bottom
This did not come with instructions so I'm not sure if it's something I've done or not done, but this thing refuses to go to the bottom of my pool. What am I doing wrong?? My arms are aching from trying to maneuver it to the bottom for about 20 minutes, then finally gave up. This is my first pool and I'm learning everything on my own from the internet, videos and instructions, and the whole ordeal is turning a dream of owning a pool into a lesson in frustration. Help!

Well worth the money
Bought this last year - have used it a few times. Does a good job of getting out the large clusters of leaves and bigger leaves that are hard to vaccuum up. Gets pool clean enough that the vacuum can do the rest without clogging up. A little cumbersome to setup and use, but if you have trees around your pool, better get one of these.
