Just Call Me the Pool Girl

We had so much wind and rain the last couple of days it made a mess in the pool.  So yours truly pulled out the big guns and cleaned it right up.  :)

These photos do not really do the mess in the pool justice.

I pulled out this bad boy to help me get the job done.  It is a P955 Polaris.  It is the top of the line 4WD Robotic Pool Cleaner that features the easy lift system, motion-sensing handheld remote, dirty canister indicator, and Vortex Vacuum technology for best-in-class cleaning performance.  In other words, it is the Cadillac of pool cleaners.  :)

The hubs bought it last year and we love it!!!

You plug the system into the wall, attach the cord to the main board, and gently place the Polaris in the pool.  It will gradually sink to the bottom of the pool.  Once it reaches the bottom I press the start button and off it goes.

It takes about 1 1/2 hours to clean our pool and the side walls.  Once the Polaris is finished cleaning the pool all you do is press the lift button and the system climbs the wall for you to grab it and remove it from the pool.  As you are lifting the Polaris out the water is emptying out of the Polaris so it is not heavy with water. 

I used the net to fish out the branches so they would not get caught up in the Polaris.  I also skimmed the leaves off of the top of the pool.  The next thing I did was sweep off the tanning deck area so the dirt would go to the bottom of the pool and the Polaris would pick it up.

I think we did a really good job, don't you?  It was so tempting to just get in but it was 55 degrees and the wind was blowing 25 mph.  I think it would have been way too cold for me!!!

I guess I could always become a pool girl, right?!!!  Ha ha!!!

Hope you are having a great day!

Take care,
