    Suction Cleaners

    1. 8 years ago
      GREAT SUCCESS
      I AM A NEW POOL OWNER AND HAVE STRUGGLED KEEPING THE POOL CLEAN BY HAND. SO, I RESEARCHED AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANERS AND SPOKE TO FRIENDS WHO ARE POOL OWNERS. MOST OF THEM REFERRED ME TO POLARIS BUT I REALLY HAD A PROBLEM SPEND CLOSE TO A THOUSAND DOLLARS. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE KREEPY KRAULY AND ITS PERFORMANCE!!! I CAN IMAGINE OTHER POOL CLEANERS FOR 3 TIMES THE PRICE DOING ANY BETTER OF A JOB.

      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 Product
      The Kreepy Krauly is amazing! The Kreepy Krauly replaced our other brand of this same type of suction cleaner. My husband was skeptical of another cleaner of this type because of the many issues we had with our old cleaner (purchased in 2000). It was easy to assemble out of the box. We both watched the first time we used the Kreepy Krauly. It climbed the steep slanted walls in the deep end, and then procceded up the vertical walls! Our other cleaner would not climb the vertical walls. My husband ... read more yelled out, "I'm sold". It has a strong suction and picks up everything in its path.

      good purchase for the money
      i bought this whale to clean the pool because with the hand vacuum you have to get into the pool and all the dirt is stirred up so you cant see where it needs to be cleaned. It works well but its kinda slow we leave it in the pool over night and the pool is clean in the morning as long as you take the ladder out. Price is good for the investment i have had no problems with it.

      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!

      Good autonomous cleaner.
      We have had the Hayward aqua bug up until this year, this is the same mechanics with a different exterior. The cleaner works very well but occasionally gets hung on the ladder, also the tail attachment (cosmetic only) keeps falling off. That's the only reason I deducted a star. If you have an above ground pool it's a must have. No more vacuuming, just pop it in the pool and after an hour or two remove the cleaner, clean out the filter basket, backwash and you have a clean pool.

      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.

      Hard working little bug
      I had purchased this about a month ago - was a bit leery that it would work well, but wow...I was surprised. It's way easier than doing it manually. It takes about 2-3 hr for my 24' round above ground pool, but I don't mind. It takes literally 5 min to connect everything, and then I just let it do its thing. Saves me effort, mosquito bites, and makes the bottom look great. It also won't poke a hole in the liner so that's a plus. Even if it wears out in 2 or 3 seasons...it's the best ... read more money I've ever spent on pool maintenance.

      Does a good job-not a speedy process
      We bought our Critter last year and have used it almost every week during swimming season. The Critter does a good job and is easy to assemble. Just put the hoses together, put the critter in the water and force the air out of it, hook it up to the skimmer and let it go. The bad part is that it is slow and it doesn't do the walls. The good part is that where it does go it does an excellent job. All in all it IS worth the money. It saves us time because we just hook it up and let it run. The ... read more Critter stops moving when it is time to backwash the filter. I would give it a B+ for a grade.

      Love my Penguin
      I purchased the Hayward Penguin above ground pool cleaner this summer. So far this has proven to be an outstanding product. It has exceeded my expectations. It's easy to assemble and hook up. I think "penny" is adorable and she keeps my pool sparkling clean. I definitely recommend this product.

      Can’t live without it!
      Ok so the reason I gave it 4 stars is these don’t last very long. I think this is the 4th one I have bought over the years. They make it 2-3 years. That being said I LOVE THEM!!! They work great, easy to put it and use and for the price I will keep buying them.

      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.

      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.

Don't hesitate to order from this company and the products are great.

      Great asset for my pool
      Once I hooked it up I couldn't get over how well it worked. The only thing I can say is I wish I had bought it a long time ago.

      Easy to use
      Works well with my shark automatic Pool cleaner. My above groundouts is around a lot of trees this came in real handy!,

      Impressive
      I've been using the cyclonic automatic cleaner with my automatic vacuum for a few weeks now. It really does keep the debris out of the filter basket.

      I like the way this works. The hose protector that was supposed to come with it was not in the box.

      Great Buy
      This is my second one (I had to replace it after about 12 years). It is a great cleaner, very easy to set up and just let it do its job. The only problem I have with it is that it misses one portion of our above ground pool (because the water return pushes it away). Obviously this isn't a huge problem since I did replace our old one.

      Product So-So
      I have a 24ft by 72 in deep dished out above ground pool. Cleaner might work well on a flat bottom pool, but with 6 feet in the middle, cleaner had trouble getting up the sides and cleaning other portions of the pool Also got hung up on stairs, which i had to unscrew and remove. Overall..seems like a good product, just not right for a 72 inch deep pool. I returned it after 1 week.

      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.
    2. 1 decade ago
      My Krepy Krawly kept getting stuck on my main drain but after installing this product It has never, I mean never, gotten stuck even once. I wish I had bought one years before. It's worth every penny you pay. After I ordered, The "In The Swim" company delivered it very, very quickly. It's almost like they had a store next door to me.

      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.

    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.
