Fred Savill - Thursday, June 21, 2012

As a pool professional for over 30 years I have tried almost all  of the different varieties of pool maintenance equipment items that have come down the pike. When it comes to vac heads for vacuuming your pool I offer this opinion on the difference between the economy vac head and the quality vac head.  The primary difference between the less expensive vac head and the higher quality, higher priced vac head is the weight of the head itself. While the higher quality vac heads also have better roller bearing replaceable wheels, the real benefit of the quality vac head is in it’s weight. When vacuuming your pool using a lighter weight vac head it tends to lift up from the pool surface stirring up the debris that you are trying to remove. Whereas the higher quality, heavier vac head glides smoothly over the pool surface without lifting up and stirring up the debris as you pass over it. As a pool owner you might have a tendency to think that a vac head, is a vac head, is a vac head. However, the time savings, as well as the durability aspect of the higher quality vac head makes it well worth the extra cost.
