The portable pool cleaner is worthy of mention on a site dedicated to swimming pool cleaners. These are self contained units that will filter water back to the source or pump water as waste.
A portable pool cleaner comes equipped with pump, filter with cartridge, filter hose, vacuum head and GFI switch all mounted on easy to move hand carts.

If you maintain a pond, pool, spa, fountain or any combination, these versatile cleaners will clean any or all. Dirty water in, clean water out.
They can also be used to discharge water. I have seen them and bought one as a gift for a family member.
Normally used by professionals, one of these water vacuums is cheap enough for regular homeowners and pros alike. They are fully assembled on a two-wheel cart for easy transport.
The most affordable models I could find are the
Aquaquality Pools & SpasTomcat Top Gun Portable Pool Vacuum..
Below is a recent brochure for 2015. The pricing information and descriptions I provide may be out of date. These models are continuously updated and improved. I learned from Aquaquality Pools & Spas that the cleaners are assembled on site on custom built handcarts.Then, to protect the components, each unit is partially disassembled for shipping.
The Top Gun Sidewinder has a price tag of $899.99 FREE SHIPPING and comes equipped with pump, cartridge filter, 40 feet of hose and either a vinyl or gunite vacuum head on a hand truck. Also has a 37 foot GFCI corset with auto reset. Unit requires NO assembly.
AquaQuality Pools and Spas, Inc. is also showing the Top Gun Maverick. It has a much bigger filter and bigger pump. 40 ft of vacuum hose and 100 ft of discharge hose. The complete rig is priced at $1199 fully assembled.
Both Portables come equipped with 37 ft GFCI power cord with auto reset.
I have seen both Sidewinder and Maverick. They are nicely mounted on hand carts. After inspecting assembly and components, I really don't see how they make any money on these filter setups at these prices. You get a lot of quality equipment.
sells a mostly professional rig for a website price of $2125.00, Includes 35 ft power cord with on/off GFI switch however the 50 feet of hose and 19 inch vacuum head all cost extra.
