      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 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.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Works like a charm. So easy. Much better than the bulky one we had.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use!! I bought this a few weeks ago and I love it!! So simple to set up and use (the hardest part was snapping on the face, lol!). I have an 18 ft round pool that is slightly coved (goes from about 4 ft to 5 ft at its deepest in the middle) and it covers the entire area. It does take close to the full 2 hrs though. Only negative is the user manual indicates that a "regulator valve" is included, IT IS NOT!! I called "In The Swim" and they shipped one to me right away, they said I wouldn't need it? Turns out THEY WERE RIGHT! As a first time automatic cleaner buyer I highly recommend!!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plesantly surprised! Nervouse at first! but once we figured out how to make it work with our pool it has been fabulous! My husband can set it up by himself but I have to have another person. Just let it go and it does a great job!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than I expected. This little guy cleaned my 12 foot above ground pool in less than an hour. Will save me a lot of time this summer.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really good Bought this few weeks ago for our oval above ground pool. We bought a river Jr last year that didn't work at all. This one is amazing! Few hours and it's done the job and so easy to use.
