Did not last the summer
I was very disappointed in this product. It was always hard to turn off and when I changed the batteries thinking they were dead it, it never worked again. It was only half way through the summer.

Gets the job done
I got this to suck up the gritty gravel that always seems to find it's way into the hot tub. It gets the job done, but lacks good suction. The four D cells just aren't enough power. A good rechargable battery pack would be a better design. Others have commented about having difficulty turning on/off, and I understand their grief. That could be better designed as well. I also wish the vac head wasn't quite so big, although others using in a pool might wish it was bigger.

Didn't last a year
Great for morning vac of small debris in a small pool but poorly constructed. Lasted only one summer.

Very Helpful and Efficient
I absolutely LOVE the ease of use in cleaning the pool with this product. It works great and for such a small broom, it has alot of power. The best thing is there are no hoses to attach and lug around the pool. However, I have had alot of trouble turning this product off after use. Maybe a switch would be easier. Once it gets wet, it's hard to turn the dial back to off. With that small hiccup, I think this is a very good product.
