Manual brushing, sweeping of leaves and to vacuum the floor and steps are weekly routine tasks to clean areas where the "kreepy" do not reach. Before Automatic Pool Cleaners, the weir or "skimmer box" was skimming off floating leaves from the water-surface. The right tools will help to take the hassle out of pool cleaning.
Get a Poolskim or Verimark's Pool Gobbler to remove leaves. The Pool Skim continuously skim off leaves when in operation using the inlet jets water flow. Its larger mouth and stronger bag put the Poolskim in the number 1 position for us. To remove leaves from the pool's floor, use a Hi-Vac sweeper or an 8-wheel sweeper for large pools.
