      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unsure I am unsure whether this product works well . My pool bottom surface is not perfectly smooth so it kept getting stuck in one spot.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver for me! I bought this product and I am glad I did ! It never claimed that it would do it perfectly but it does mostly which saves me time doing all of the pool. I know it will help when I ready the pool to close down for the winter so I don't have to go into the cold water to do the job. The only thing that I had a problem with is that it didn't have a long enough reach to the length of the pool I think I need at least two more pieces of hose. The problem there is they don't just sell two or four pieces of hose they sell a replacement hose that costs as much as the Lil shark.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less than happy When my Zippy no longer worked, I needed to replace it with something and most cleaners are too expensive so I decided to try this one. The major problems I have encountered are: it turns into the walls and stops moving, it gets caught in the steps and stops moving, it continually covers the same strips of the pool and leaves the rest untouched. You have to keep changing the pattern or moving it manually. I will say that what it does cover, it does clean but that's about all. Also, I have solar heaters which I can't run while this is in the pool. I don't like the fact that you have to use the skimmer and pump to run the thing. I am truly sorry I wasted the money on this. I should have spent the extra money for something more reliable, which is what I am now going to do. One more thing to go in the trash, what a waste.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best use of your time I purchased Wanda the whale. Had enough from rewards on scanning receipts at Walmart to purchase, so ordered it from there. Only had a few$ difference. For the cost & time it saves me alone, is worth its weight in gold. Having had a pool for 14 years prior, to purchasing "CONTEMPRA" it's an above ground pool---so the extra time I work on my Also the whale comes with 12 pieces of hose to connect to skimmer. My pool is 27 round, I had to order ( & they were here in 3 days, no rush, no charge for the extra hoses) 3 more pieces of hose allowed it to have plenty of hose, & move freely!!! :D would definitely recommend

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I purchased this Kreepy Krause shark about a month ago. I was amazed on how well it works in our pool. This little shark gets every tiny pieces off the bottom leaving a super clean bottom. I love the scrubbing bristles that you can adjust for different movements.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I really loved my Aqua Critter. When I wore it out I tried the Lil Shark because of the high reviews I read about it. Perhaps in a round pool but I have a 10'x20' ultra-frame pool. Sorry Lil Shark, the Aqua Critter does a better job getting around the edges and into/out of corners. I can't recommend this product for a rectangular pool.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just say AWESOME! I bought the Lil' Shark and put it in my 24' round pool and it started moving at just the right speed. My 30 year old son was over last weekend with my granddaughter and I told him about it. He was delighted, but I could tell he wished we bought it about 15 years earlier. He was the one who was appointed to keep the bottom clean, using the old school handle method. This is worth it!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! I recently bought the Kreepy Krawler after reading reviews on the product. I can say honestly that it was the best decision I've made. Its easy to use and it cleans my pool perfectly. I also love the way the hose extensions fit together well and you can add or remove them to your desired size of your pool. So easy to use and remove from the water, thanks In the swim!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow moving junk I could clean the pool faster with a toothbrush and fishnet. I tried this with a regular hose, and the one that comes with it - the pool basically has to be clean for it to move continuously. I ran my 1.5hp pump for 5 hours yesterday and the little shark never cleaned the pool. Waste of money.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had it for about a month, it works great. It keeps the pool clean. Hose is in parts which is great for me so I can remove one part and not have to replace the whole thing. That's if the dog bites this one. She try's to remove it from the pool.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from invest in something else Have 7,700 gal. Splash pool. Had two Haywards before this. Though i'd spend a litte more $ and try this. Only cleaned one section of pool after being in pool 6-7 hours each day. Did all troubleshooting including trying every setting and cleaned filter twice. Tired of pushing it around with skimmer pole and returned it.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mistake Don't waste your money. Just buy the creepy crawler. I had a creepy crawler when I purchased my pool 5 years ago but we broke it last year. We thought we would try this cleaner out last year. We purchased later in the season and used it 2 times and neither time did it clean well at all. It will not go all around the pool either. Tried trouble shooting as it instructed in the book and still did not work well. I called the manufacturer because it wasn't a year old yet, they explained since it wasn't broke due to manufacturer defect they couldn't refund. Supposedly the CSR was going to speak with her manager and call me back on Monday... guess what? Still haven't received that call. I have now purchased my trusty creepy crawler and I must say it works fabulous. Pool is sparkling clean. So don't be like me and waste almost $200....

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kreepy Krauly 'Lil Shark i have an 54x20 intex pool with a 1hp pump and 16in sand filter. first off i had to make an adapter to make it fit the filter line, not a big deal and definitely not my reason for a bad review. i have had this cleaner for one season, my biggest debris is dead algae and it does a great job of picking that up. the problem is that it wants to stay in one place it will clean a 10ft area spotless but no more. i found a trick though, if i tie the hose to the railing and move it around the pool throughout the day it does great.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Lil Shark Scrubs! We've never had a year where we didn't have to scrub the entire bottom after the auto vacuum, but this year after the 'Lil Shark there's only a few stubborn spots. For the first nasty part we just bypassed the filter to spare it all that stuff. Then let it run on filter for 12 hours, back washing when it slowed down. It scrubbed so much of that sticky stuff off the bottom! I also witnessed the shark gobble a large maple leaf and it didn't clog! I did have to use the handle to guide it to some places. It has been windy and I think that caused the shark to only do one side at first, and kept it from getting the perimeter really good. Our outflow Aqualight is also missing some gaskets and doesn't spray in one direction and that might have an affect on the missed spots also. We are getting that repaired. The water is excellently clear, and we're very pleased we are looking at a summer we don't have to work on the pool. Seriously, this is going to be a labor-free summer! In our defense, the reason our pool is so nasty at opening is because we get so much in it from the trees after closing. We don't bother with leaf covers because it is so heavy it pulls the net into the pool or it gets too heavy to roll off. The pool isn't under any trees, but the wind blows them in constantly. At opening time the leaf grabber took 3 bags out this year, and most of it had already rotted which is what the Shark had to pick up. Thanks to the 'Lil Shark this will be the first year we will truly enjoy having a pool. Thank you! The only question I have is what do the different brush settings do? The literature tells you to set it at 0, and all of the trouble shooting says set it at 0. What are the other settings for?

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from By Far the Best ever I've purchased at least 4 other auto cleaners. I had issues with everyone of them. This Lil Shark does a fantastic job on the pool. It very seldom gets stuck behind the steps. I have of 50 ft in diameter Pool and it will clean every inch plus suck up leaves in two days. The only thing the hose wasn't long enough but that was a minor set back. Overall for the price and Job quality it is well worth it. Just stick it in the skimmer and let it do the work. I've had it for 2 Years and not a lick of problems. I highly recommend the Lil Shark for any size pool.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleaner I've Had First I would like to thank the other reviewers for their input - it helped me with my decision. This is my 3rd cleaner for an 18x33 pool and the first one to actually clean the whole pool. It doesn't tangle or get stuck very often and cleans the pool in 2-3 hrs. It won't pick up the big leaves but will get the small ones as well as bugs and silt very well. It works well on the irregular bottom of my pool. I would highly recommend this cleaner. Very Satisfied !!!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow This little thing is amazing. When I got it out of the box I instantly thought there is no way this is going to work it's just too simple.... Guess what it works! One recommendation don't try to use it to clean a dirty pool because it will kill your filter because it will clog it in half a day.... (Yes it works that well).... It's not made to clean a super dirty pool it's just made to clean and maintain a pool that hasn't been neglected. Drop it in a pool that has been maintained and it will keep it that way! One tip make sure you get the air out of the hose and you are good to go. This is a purchase you will never regret! Amazing!!!!!!!!
