      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.

      • Cleans flat and dished-bottom above ground swimming pools in two hours or less
      • 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 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

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread We have a 15x30 oval pool, and last year (our 1st season) we fought mustard algae a lot, plus the normal "stuff" that accumulates on bottom surface. I'd manually vacuum by getting in the pool (we don't have a deck...yet) any time people were coming over or when it needed it...which seemed just about every few days. So after seeing the positive reviews and catching it on sale, we bought this one during the offseason. Worth every penny. IMHO the little plunger 'test' tube they give you is kinda goofy and it took a minute to figure out what it was used for and to realize it doesn't stay on there while running. Just make sure your filter is clean so that there is enough suction in the system (i.e., if the return jets are weak...time to backwash!). Set this little critter up and let her do her thing. Don't hesitate....if you're tired of vacuuming in the hot sun because you have guests coming over or just because you're a perfectionist and like a clean, picture perfect [Add to Cart] right now--you won't be sorry!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works! Used 2x so far and lady bug really works. She does get air in her occasionally and floats up but otherwise does her job. It takes her about an hour and a half to clean my entire 24 foot round pool but I'm happy to let her work while I relax or play w the kids.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Bug! I bought the Aqua Critter a few weeks ago, hoping it would make my job a little easier. This little bug covers the entire pool, and sucks up and everything in it's path. I have a 30' round Hayward above ground pool so I needed 3 extra pieces of hose, but worth every penny. I highly recommend!

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets stuck around ladder The critter does a good job cleaning the bottom. In my case, it got caught around my ladder on two separate occasions. It required me to go pull it out since it couldn't do it itself. The second time it must have been there for a while. I discovered it early evening. By morning my pool had drained into the back yard through a whole in the exact spot the critter was caught. Now it is costing me $825 to replace my liner. Haven't decided if I will put the critter back in the pool.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works good. I bought this a month ago and it works just good. It has a mind of its own. It doesn't want to clean the whole pool unless it's guided by me. Better than cleaning it myself.
