      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

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 Critter stops moving when it is time to backwash the filter. I would give it a B+ for a grade.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 add the leaf canister. Removing it from the water, section by section, was easier as well.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Time Saver This little Aqua Critter, we call Eunice, has given me back my life! It cleans our 24’ X 12’ pool so all I have to do is scoop out the leaves. Before Eunice I had to spend at least an hour vacuuming each night after work. It took me a while to actually figure out how to hook Eunice up to the pool. YouTube showed me how to hook Eunice up to my Intex pool. I took the hose that runs from the filter to the pump and, after closing the valve to the pool, I jammed Eunice’s hose tightly into the hose going into the pump and turn it to filter. Viola! It worked! Eunice runs about 3 – 4 hours a night. Occasionally she gets stuck by the pool ladder so I just slide her out of the way and off she goes! I would highly recommend this little Aqua Critter.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
