My DS somehow broke my Dauphin Deluxe automatic pool cleaner. I've used it for 6 years and can't imagine having to clean my pool by hand again.

Any recommendations??

How old is your DS?


Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

If I trusted that he wouldn't F-up the pool system i'd have him vacuum it by hand - but I don't. Whatever he touches, he f-ups. My lawn mower, my hedge trimmer, my car, my pool umbrella, my wheel barrow, his college, etc - all this year.

Can it be repaired? Leslie's Pool Supplies will look at it and tell you what needs to be done. And then charge you to do it, of course.

But it is probably a lot cheaper than buying a new one.

I've had a Kreepy Krawly for years and love it.

It is what it is, not what we hope it can be.
