A step up from the normal Pool Blaster Max version which is already a really great handheld pool vacuum! This CG or Commercial Grade is made for more heavy duty usage, not necessarily a bigger pool but the amount and types of debris. With an extra set of fine filters you can pick up small or large debris with ease. Definitely worth the extra cost if you have a lot of different debris in your pool!

  • Must physically vacuum the pool yourself

  • Must use your own pole

  • takes 4 hours to charge

VERDICT

This is the most basic handheld pool vacuum you can get from Pool Blaster but it doesn't disappoint! It's actually quite great for big large debris especially since it includes a large capacity leaf bag. Works really well in addition to your normal pool robot and cleaning in between cycles. Definitely worth getting if you have a ton of leaves and you want to remove them on your own!

  • Must physically vacuum the pool yourself

  • Must use your own pole

  • takes 8 double A batteries

  • Does not pick up small debris well
