This is an excellent low-tech solution to leaves on the bottom of the swimming pool. The water from your garden hose shoots around causing a cyclone effect which sucks a large number of teases and other stuff up off the pool floor and into the large mesh bag, which you can then pull out and dump. It doesn’t use the pool filtration system at all, just a garden hose and pole.

Wow, this thing really sucks, but in a good way. Quickly and easily picks up all the debris from the pool floor. Work so much better than expected. Quick shipping. Highly recommended.

This does what I wanted (i.e. vacuum leaves off the bottom) relatively well. It also says that you can flip it over and use as a skimmer, which doesn't work so well. The wheels are cheap and probably would have been a good idea to spend a few dollars more for a model with better wheels. It's a good idea to upgrade to a fine mesh bag. Also bought a hose adapter so that I could use my Polaris hose with this. Ping pong ball in the net is also a good idea.

At first I was skeptical about using the item for my above ground pool. Instead of the net it comes with I used the mesh net and it picked up the finer stuff. Would recommend for anyone who owns an above ground pool. It saves you the hassle of hoses and pumps.

This is an amazing product that really works. During Hurricane Irma a big tree broke my screen enclosure and my pool was full of debris. I finally got the branches out but I just could not get the leaves which covered more than half the bottom of my pool.. When I received the Poolmaster Big Sucker I could immediately see that it was going to work well... GREAT IDEA!. Then when I hooked it up and put it into my pool, I could not believe the ease with which it was picking up the leaves. I had to empty the bag 4-5 times because of the large volumn but I was finished in less than 15 minutes and it effortlessly picked up every leaf and pine needle. I LOVE this Big Sucker

As a first time homebuyer and 1st time pool owner, I was sceptical if it truly would work when buying, due to the price and minimalism of the product. I have weekly pool service but living in Florida it rains heavily in the afternoons and there's a oak tree near my pool so the leaves totally mess up my perfectly clean pool. Setup was super easy and instructions really aren't need. Immediately upon putting in the pool it instantly started ducking up all the leaves at the bottom of my pool!! It was super easy to use, my water hose is heavy so that added a little extra weight but worked like an absolute charm!!I I'M SO HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE.

Before receiving this product I was doubtful such a simple and inexpensive tool would work. We were hit pretty hard by hurricane Florence last September and I wasn't able to clean and winterize our above ground pool like I wanted to. We barely had time to get the cover on it. Needless to say, I had quite the mess at the bottom of my pool. Leaves, funk and everything imaginable was at the bottom of my pool. I first tried the skimmer with the extension pole to try get the leaves out. Then I tried the vacuum that I normally use with the sand filter. The vacuum head opening kept getting clogged. After a few hours and not making much progress I called it a day. I was looking on Evareon and found this leaf vacuum. OMG! Best money I have ever spent. It took maybe 45 minutes tops to get 6 bags of leaves and yuck out from the pool. Now my pool is spotless leaf and funk free. I didn't have to hook it up to my sand filter. I just connected the garden hose and the pole extension from the skimmer I already had. Another great thing is you can run your filter while you are using this product so it's getting everything that is stirred up from the bottom. It worked great in a short amount of time and not the least bit strenuous. So if you are contemplating buying or not buying this product. Buy it! It is awesome and works!

We had a big wind storm, and the bottom of my pool was completely covered in leaves. My side pressure pool sweep could not keep up with all those leaves, and I was changing the leaf bag every hour. The bag on the Leslie's Leaf Bagger holds at least four times more leaves than my robotic sweep. I spent about an hour going over the bottom of the pool with the Leaf Bagger, and I accomplished more leaf clean up than I did with my robotic sweep in two days! Great product for the money. I
followed all of Upstate Ps tips in that review, and it works perfectly. No electricity needed or batteries to change. You have to manually move the Leaf Bagger across the bottom, but it is easy to maneuver, and easy to dump the leaves when full. The bag has a toggle on the string, making it super quick and secure to attach and detach the bag
