My experience was fair. The product did well for the summer we used it but by the end the pole had snapped. I love the tablet dispenser. It was nice to have something that slowly allowed the chlorine to enter the water. I didn't end up with bleach spots on the bottom. I hated using the granules... much rather use the tablets. The vaccuum worked okay and I didn't really have a need for the scrubber as our pool is a Intex metal frame.
