    Suction Cleaners

    1. 6 years ago
      The ONLY pool vac I'll ever buy
      When I bought my home with an existing pool 20 years ago, it came with a Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. After more than 15 years of use, the Kreepy needed to be replaced. I fought with hubby to purchase a new Kreepy, but his heart was set on a robotic cleaner that cost more than twice what a Kreepy cost. I was never happy with the robotic cleaner's performance - it never cleaned as well as my Kreepy. After the robotic's third breakdown in 3 years, I finally convinced hubby to go back to Kreepy ... read more Krauly. We are both tickled at how well this cleaner operates...and the rebate made the deal sweeter!

      Better without the regulator
      Love the way this cleans. Works extremely well and hits every part of the pool. The only problem we have experienced was due to the regulator. It would collect too much debris inside which reduced suction and would cause the device to float. It is a simple fix of removing the regulator and sealing the hose to the adapter with tape. Have had no issues since. We have a vinyl liner.

      Great addition
      I heard about this product from my son's neighbor and felt the price plus rebate was such a great deal that I should give it a try. I'd been thinking of getting an automatic cleaner for a couple of years, but the $1500 to $2000 figure given me by my local pool shop was unreasonable in my mind. I have been overwhelmed with the ability of this product to clean not only the floor, but the walls also in such a short period of time. I do recommend purchasing the skimmer basket attachment as it is ... read more absolutely necessary for catching the few leaves, pinestraw and other items that accumulate occasionally.

      The pool vs. Deodar cedar needles------
      Used to get bombarded by the cedar tree needles---real hassle keeping the pool clean. My wife thought up placing an old nylon stocking inside the mesh collection bag and PRESTO-----virtually all the needles that made their way to the pool bottom were snared in the trap!!

      Works great
      It's a bit heavy, so depending upon your cleaner, you may also need a very short piece of hose to keep it close to the pool wall (to keep the hose from tangling)

      Great Product
      I use this with a Hayward Super Pump and a Kreepy Krauly suction side pool cleaner in an in-ground pool. When we are not in the pool I can pretty much leave the Pool cleaner in all the time now. The pump basket no longer fills up with leaves and debris from my neighbors dirty silver maple and black locust forest. Everything goes in the bag! Awesome! My water is cleaner and I haven't had to backwash as much this year. Lots of pool "Gadgets" don't always do what you hope, but this thing I love. ... read more Wish I had purchased it sooner.

      very industrious critter
      Our new Aqua Critter is replacing an aging and broken Polaris 65, and I must say that I'm glad we switched. The Bug (as we call it) is easier to set up, and did it's job with no trouble. Our pool floor has no wrinkles, but is a bit dimply, so I had some minor concern about the need for a "smooth" pool bottom. There was no difficulty, however. I love the way it cleans the fine silt - something the Polaris, as dependable as it was, never did. If we encounter too much heavy debris, we can always ... read more add the leaf canister. Removing it from the water, section by section, was easier as well.

      a must have
      This definelty is awesome time saver to clean pool. This is my 3rd one. First one lasted 5-6 years. Second one only lasted three. Needed new rubber feet and plastic wheel was lost; decided to buy new instead of wasting $ on replacement parts. I first up-graded to Shark; returned it and got this. Much better product.

      LOVE IT - LOVE IT - LOVE IT
      I purchased a home with a pool - and knew absolutely ZERO about maintaining it - - - I was lucky and the water cleared up quickly (from green sludge) but I could never get the floor vacuumed very clean. A friend suggested a pool vacuum critter - so I purchased this one and WOW!!!! I wish I had done it the day we opened the pool! Now my pool is as clean as any I have ever seen! Crystal Clear - Sparkling Blue ! And all I have to do is plug the hose into the bottom of the skimmer ! How simple is ... read more that! MUCH MUCH EASIER than talking my kids into vacuuming!

      Beats using a manual vacuum cleaner!
      I gave it a three star because it works great on my sisters pool but in my pool it goes slow. She has a chlorine? pool rectangle shape, mine is salt and a t-shape.

      Great value! Super company support!
      Terrific cleaner, easy to use. It climbs the walls and does a great job on the sides and floor of my gunite pool. Hayward tech support the best around. Even out of warranty, they are absolutely the best company to do business with. I have used this cleaner for 4+ years. Once, under warranty, overnighted it to them, they completely rebuilt the unit, and paid for return shipping, all done within 5 days -- no charge. Out of warranty, they did the same - no charge! Works flawlessly. Occasionally, if ... read more big debris (rocks, tile grout flaking off), get caught inside, it's fairly easy to get this out. Need to check the "flippers", which occasionally either need to be replaced or re-attached. Otherwise, no complaints. I use it in conjunction with a leaf/debris catcher (separate item). The best thing about it is, there are no electrical cords to mess with, you can leave the unit and the hose floating in the pool when not in use....just disengage it from the skimmer and let it float!

      adjustment knob missing
      Pool Vac arrived , but I need/o suction adjuster @ left rear of unit. This I'm second Hayward Vac and I have always been pleased with it's performance, but I need to set it to setting III to get up my pool walls.

      Excellent Pool Cleaner
      I have a small above-ground pool and this cleaner works quickly and efficiently. Easy to assemble and fun to watch as it goes about its' business. I used the Hayward Aqua Critter satisfactorily for several years before I dropped it and it broke. A few years ago, I hooked up my sand filter unknowingly switching the intake/outtake hoses and my pool bottom was covered with sand. This cleaner sucked out all the sand and I was able to enjoy the pool once again. Best cleaner I have ever purchased and ... read more I have had several over the years. Hayward is a trusted brand. I am well pleased with this handy must have!

      won't give her up
      When I was considering buying a pool cleaner, I was very sceptical about Wanda or anything like it, but I bought it anyway because I spent so much time with the hand held pool vac and due to an injury I had to find another way so Hereeeeeeee's WANDA, the best purchase I made for my pool. I don't know what the person was talking about that said it takes him 30 minutes to hook it up cause he must be doing something wrong it takes about 5 minutes at the most. I tell everyone "you have to get Wanda ... read more for your pool" I won't do without it and if the one I have breaks and can't be fixed I'll buy another one. This is my second season with my Wanda.
    3. 1 decade ago
      Excellent product
      Wanda was the best pool investment we ever made next to the pool itself. We hook her up and she goes to work, keeping our pool crystal clear and perfectly clean. I hate to vacuum the pool, but three months into the pool season and we have not used our manual vacuum even once; Wanda does it all.

      drain cover
      Bought this about 1 month ago. Wish I had purchased it long ago..the convenience of not having to stop and check that the vacuum isn't stuck on the bottom drain ...peace of mind. I would definitely recommend getting it.

      Must Have for Polaris
      This product is great and allowing me to enjoy the pool even more. Prior to purchasing the product, I would come home and see the Polaris sweeper stuck on the drain and the bottom of the pool still litered with debris. Now, I don't have to monitor the Polaris and when I come home from work, I can jump into the pool....no pausing to manually sweep the pool anymore.

      Essential for an Automatic Cleaner
      I got an AquaVac Tiger Shark and didn't understand why it didn't get the whole pool clean overnight. I ran it during the day once and saw that it got caught on top of the main drain and just sat there. After I purchased and installed the Unicover, it hasn't gotten stuck again and now my pool is in great shape. Excellent purchase, and essential for an automatic cleaner.

      Great timesaver
      I love not having to stand at the edge of the pool for an hour vacuuming it out myself. I just throw this in a couple of hours before we are going swimming and it takes care of it for me. Sometimes I have to pull it to a few spots that were missed but for the most part it gets the majority of the stuff. It's definitely a keeper!

      HE IS MY POOL GUY!
      I LOVE MY KREEPY KRAULY. HE IS VERY EFFICIENT FOR MY ABOVE GROUND. I HAVE NAMED HIM FRANCO. I VERY EASILY ATTACH HIM TO MY INTAKE BASKET. HE LOVES TO RUN AROUND IN MY POOL CLEANING EVERY LITTLE SPECK. I NO LONGER HAVE TO GET THAT BIG BRUSH VACCUM OUT AND TORTURE MY SELF FOR HALF A DAY. I JUST SWIM AROUND AT THE SAME TIME HE IS CLEANING. I STORE HIM ON MY DECK. THE HOSE IS HUNG AROUND A HOOK ON THE OUTSIDE OF MY DECK. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR IT'S OVERALL EFFICIENTCY.

      Makes cleaning the pool so much easier
      I love our pool cleaner. I put it in at night before going to bed and when I wake up the pool is clean. The only problem is that I need to remove the stairs in the pool because it does get stuck on the stairs.

      Works great
      Bought this to clean our above ground pool and I am so glad I did. Whitin an hour my 27' foot pool is clean. No more manual cleaning. If you have an above ground pool I highly recommend this product.

      OMG why didn't I buy this sooner!
      Purchased in May and have been using weekly - "Tux" has been keeping the pool spotless! I've had my above ground pool since 2004 and of all the items I've purchased, this is the absolute best $129 I've ever spent for it. We had an awful storm last week that knocked out the power for 2 days and left the pool covered in leaves and branches. With the help of Tux the pool is crystal clear again. He's the best. And he NEVER complains :)

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Suction Pool Cleaners

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Suction Cleaner Automatic Pool Vacuums

    Shop from the most popular suction pool cleaners like the AquaNaut (The Pool Cleaner)Hayward Aqua CritterKreepy Krauly Sand Shark, and the Zodiac MX6 cleaner. Energy efficient suction pool cleaners use the power of your pool pump to vacuum debris and particles into your pool’s filter, and can be directed into specific patterns for customized cleaning.


    Benefits of Suction Pool Cleaners

     1. Lowest cost pool cleaners, starting at less than $100.
     2. Fewer moving parts and wearable parts, for less maintenance and repairs.
     3. No additional cost to operate, runs when your pool filter pump is running.
     4. Available Skim Vac Plates trap leaf debris in the skimmer basket.
     5. Available In-line Leaf Canisters handle large and heavy leaf debris. 

    How Suction Cleaners Work: Suction pool cleaners connect to your pool skimmer or dedicated vacuum line, and are powered by the suction of water from your pool pump. With models designed to clean in-ground and above ground pools, suction cleaners move about the pool to vacuum walls and floor, bringing the dirt and debris into the pump basket and pool filter for removal.

    Suction Cleaner Installation: Suction cleaners assemble in minutes without tools. Simply join the 4' hose sections together to reach the furthest part of the pool. Connect one end of the hose to the cleaner head, and the other into your skimmer or vacuum line. Adjust pump suction valves if needed to pull more water from the cleaner, and start moving the cleaner. A 1 hp pump or greater is recommended to provide enough suction power.

    If you have any questions about In The Swim's suction pool cleaners, please contact our pool experts via phone or email, for fast, professional service. Most of our suction cleaners are available with super-fast 1-day shipping and processing.
