You can check us out as we actually sell these products at HERE . Let us know if you need any more information on maintaining your pool!

Regarding the type of equipment, this really depends on your pool's finish.

If you have a concrete pool ie: marcite, pebbletec, quartz, etc... you will need the vacuum with wheels, not brushes around it, a combination brush is the best, however you can get away with just a simple nylon brush, and the skimmer doesn't matter.

vinyl or fiberglass pools, you would need a vacuum with brushes instead of wheels so you don't damage the surface, a nylon brush would work for fiberglass, you need to be careful with any brushes on vinyl, and same for a skimmer (doesn't change).

You may also want to look into getting a test kit so you know what your water chemistry is, and also an automatic pool cleaner definitely makes things a lot easier!
