      The Hayward ladybug pool cleaner easily connects to your pool’s pump and filtration system, so there’s no need for a booster pump. The cleaner rolls on wheels across you pool’s bottom, easily traversing small lumps to effectively remove sand, dirt or other debris in small creases. And along with the Hayward Aqua Bug cleaner being good at what it does, it’s also fun and cute to watch do its thing.

      • Unique pre-programmed pattern cleans entire pool automatically
      • Connects to your pool’s pump and filter system; No booster pump required
      • Includes ladybug vacuum head, 30 ft of hose (in 4-ft. sections) and skimmer cone
      • Not recommended for use on above ground pools with pumps smaller than 3/4 horsepower

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works so well! This is my second automatic above ground pool cleaner. So easy to assemble and get started. Cleans so well. I will never be without one. First one I had lasted 4 years so the price is right if it lasts that long again.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan It does vacuum but not well. It's gets the big stuff doesn't pick up the dirt particles. I have to go behind it and manually vacuum. Not worth the money. I used to have the Intex automatic pool cleaner but when we got a bigger, nicer pool I thought I needed a "better" vacuum. I will be buying another Intex cleaner and whatever adapters it takes to make the hoses fit. Of course I can't return this because I had to try it out to decide I didn't like it so it was a waste of money.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I bought this two weeks ago and have used it twice. I read all of the reviews and thought I was getting a good product. It does not work well. I am very disappointed. I am having to go back to manually vacuuming my pool out myself. I called and tried to find out about returning it and the lady said it has to be in the original packaging and not be used. How am I supposed to know if it works well or not if I don't use it? That was $150 wasted. I will never buy another thing on this website. They don't stand behind what they sell.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes practice First time I used this little critter I was getting frustrated. You really need to learn how to use this. First there was a partial blockage in the suction throat which I thought was a part of the unit. It was a perfect fit of a plastic piece of something or another. Then it worked better. Second use, was getting stuck against the wall. When placing in the pool I didn't make sure rollers were in proper position. Made rollers adjustment it worked fine. Third time was a charm. This product really does clean debris from the bottom of the pool. If it worked as well the first time out of the box or even the second time I would have rated 5 stars.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aqua critter I bought this aqua critter and it works great on the flat areas. I have a scooped out pool and it does have trouble getting up and out of the deeper end. That's my only concern
