1. Super Blue Pool Water Clarifier

You’ll get a weighted vacuum head with handle, an 18-inch wall brush, a skimmer, a scoop thermometer and a dual test kit, plus instructions for pH and chlorine checks. All that for what could easily cover the price of a single brush at the pool store.

6. BARACUDA G3 Automatic Pool Cleaner

One of the problems with pool cleaners is that they have so many little rotating parts, which have a habit of getting jammed. But, the Baracuda Automatic Pool Cleaner sports only one moving part and devours debris with its powerful suction, while its FlowKeeper Valve helps maintain peak performance.

7. Zodiac Baracuda Automatic Swimming Pool Cleaner

The Zodiac Baracuda combines cyclonic suction, powerful vacuuming and an aggressive turbine blade to climb and clean the walls of your pool. That’s why they nicknamed it the “Little Tank”. It’s super sturdy and works hard, so you don’t have to.
