ThePoolCleaner is the best thing I ever bought. Not sure why they are so expensive now.

Once I got the two Styrofoam floats the proper distance on the hose and a perfect rpm setting, it is as easy as dropping it in and cleaning out your basket when you're done. Mine got stuck in corners near steps a while back but now I never have an issue. Love it. Recommended by some pool pros that helped me sort out some issues when I bought the house.

We can't use a vacuum because we have a golden retriever who thinks that the thing is a demon and he attacks it. He is funny, but seriously Cody? So we use Aqua Rite - have actually been very happy with them (but we've had the same tech for a long time). It's kind of nice to not have to worry about it.

I live in Mel Bch and use Brevard Pools. They do a good job and seem to be decently priced. They do have a tendency to try to get you to replace things that just need a quick repair though. Other than that, they are good.

Aqua rite is decently priced (not more than private companies). Our tech, Justin, is good (and loves Cody, which is important - some people regard him as a nuisance because we can't always get him put up before they get there and he'll try to play with you till we can get out there to call him). He does tend to regard the pool area as his own private playground (he's not aggressive at all, but he's big and goofy and kind of a pain - I inherited him like this). I've had other people who did it when Justin was on vacation that I wasn't as thrilled about, but overall we've been pretty happy. Right now they're doing their usual bugging us about our water levels. Dude, we know it's a little low - it's gonna rain soon. We have a well, and it's a real PITA to add water, so I tend to err on the side of caution between blowing up the well pump or the pool pump (pool pump is a LOT cheaper). So I run it a little here, a little there, but I can't run it for long enough to add a ton of water.
