Let me first say that I have used a lot of different vacuum system micron bags. One of my all-time favorites is the Riptide 75 micron bag because it is perfect for leaf debris as well as some fine dirt. I’ve used 60-micron bags from Riptide and other manufacturers and these were very good at removing fine dirt. But their new 25-micron bag is really amazing for a number of reasons.
Let me just get the fact that there is some resistance in the bag because of the very fine micron mesh. This means moving the vacuum from the spa to the pool with the 25-micron bag on will be a slower process as the air takes longer to evacuate. Also, the bag does get full quickly with the fine dirt so you may need to stop and empty the bag in the middle of vacuuming the pool. Not a major drawback when you consider the benefits.
The number one benefit and the reason Riptide even came up with the 25-micron bag was that they want to eliminate the need for system vacuuming or manual vacuuming as we called it in my day. With the 25 micron bag, you will not need to system vac a pool again. That means no more 2nd service cart or hauling a 50 ft pool hose and manual vacuum head back to a service account. The amount of time this will save you by just using the Riptide at all your service accounts will pretty substantial. Even if you have to stop once to rinse out the 25-micron bag once before finishing. Or better yet, carry two 25 micron bags and just swap them out.
You can make a pretty good comparison between the 25-micron bag and a pool filter or a robotic cleaner. For example, the Polaris cleaner will filter down to about 60 microns. The dolphin robots to about 20 microns. A Sand Filter will filter down to 20-40 microns. A Cartridge Filter down to 10-20 microns. So at 25 microns, any visible dirt will be picked up by the bag, leaving the pool dirt-free and spotless. It is really hard to think about a vacuum system bag with the ability to pick up dirt like a robotic pool cleaner but the 25-micron bag does just that!
