Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark I/G Cleaner
Best of four
Great cleaner. I gave up on a newly purchased AquaBot within a month. I have owned two earlier Kreepy Krauleys and the sand shark is the best yet, but advisable to use with leaf canister to avoid frequent pump cleaning.

Sorry I wasted my money
This does not clean efficiently. I'm so sorry I bought it.

My worst nightmare
I followed the instructions exactly and installed it just as it said. Before I put it in the water, I hand vacuumed the pool and backflushed the filter to provide every chance for this device to succeed.
As I stood and watched it move accross the pool, it climbed the wall and got stuck on the glass of the pool light. After I put it back on the bottom it went right back up the wall and stuck itself to the glass over the pool light again. After removing it from the glass, I took it to the opposite side of the pool and it promptly stopped itself against the concrete step.
After five hours of constanly dislodging it from various stalls, I removed it from the pool and prepared it for it's return to "IN THE SWIM". Leaves that fell into the pool while under operation were promptly driven to the bottom by the trailing hose, however the pool sweeper, while in motion, failed to pick them up. After removing the sweeper, I had to revacuum the pool to remove these leaves. This is a case of "BUYER BEWARE".

I've had this cleaner for almost 2 weeks and I love it. My Hayward (previous cleaner) broke and was without one for about a month or 2 so we had a lot of debris in the pool (not screened in) I took my lunch break and put the sand shark in and I was amazed that when i got home from work that my pool was clean clean clean. It was reaching all areas just fine where as my Hayward once it got to the jets it would losen up suction and go back to the other end of the pool the sand shark does not do that at all. Its like it has its own attitude the jets do not phase it at all. Its amazing how the little things that make a big difference. Im also grateful that we were able to do the payment plan. This is the first time we have to buy one of these and didnt realize how extremely pricey they get. It is however worth it to spend a little more so it can get the job done right...Thanks In the Swim.!
