    Above-Ground Cleaners

      Love it
      I love my penguin pool vaccuum. Just hook her up and she goes. Cleans the pool floor thoroughly. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is the instructions on how to hook her up and get her moving could have been clearer

      Awesome purchase
      My mother in law bought this as a gift for us to care for our new pool. We had read some reviews on it before hand to see what we needed to do in order for it to work properly with the pool we have. Basically as long as you take care of it and dont allow the hose to coil it does a fantastic job. I can put her (diver darla) the kids had to name her. But i can put her in the pool in the morning and a few hours later there is nothing left in it. I was a bit weary of it as well just because our pool ... read more is not all the way even so i was afraid she would get stuck. As far as I remember shes only gotten stuck stuck once but the other times she has done just fine. I absolutely love it and i make sure that no one else (kids) mess with her so we can keep her in the best shape as possible because it saves me hours worth of work.

      Work horse
      This is our second turtle. The first one lasted 8 years and was used every day. Great value for the price.

      Easy to put together and easy to operate.
      I have been using the Mamba Automatic Pool Vacuum for a few years. The one shown in the photo had no protection for the two plastic pipes that resulted in damage to one plastic pipe which affected the operation detrimentally. I had to tape over the cracked pipe damaged when the vacuum tried to pass the built in steps in the lower end of our pool.The latest model, the one I recently bought, has another protective plastic guard that covers the pipe preventing damage. Inexpensive/Good!

      Amazing Value!
      The Mamba was easily assembled in a few minutes. I spent most of the time discovering that it was practically already assembled, while I was sorting out the parts. The only task requiring much focus was attaching the "shoe" and the "disc" to the bottom of the unit itself. It's a matter of getting it started and rotating it around until it's attached, kind of like putting a bicycle tire onto a bicycle rim. You just keep scooching it along and then all of a sudden, it's on. Everything else is just ... read more a little trial and error; the float ring should hold the hose up to the surface at the deepest part of the pool while allowing the cleaning head to remain attached at the bottom, and I started with the "flow regulator" at about 1/2 way which was perfect for my pool and filter. In about an hour and a half, the bottom of my pool was as clean as it could be! I get a kick out of watching it chug along!

      Good Buy
      We have had the vacuum for about a month and so far everything is good. It was easy to assemble and easy to hookup to my pool. I have only 2 problems and that it seems like it takes the same path. I will adjust my return to move the current and it works great. It also will not maneuver around my stairs and gets stuck. Again I will just move the return and it will not go by them. It took some time for me to adjust to what it could and couldn't do. For the price I am VERY please with this.

      I luv my lil shark
      I just bought this Lil Shark and it is awesome!!!!!! As we speak my pool is almost clean and it been in there for about 1 1/2 and it scrubs great. I am in the process of closing my pool and buying this baby made it easy so it will be clean for Spring. I Would definetly recommend this to anyone with Above ground pool. I have a 24 ft round. P.S. Wish I bought it earlier this summer. LOL Thank u "In The swim"!!!

      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.

      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 ... read more of hose they sell a replacement hose that costs as much as the Lil shark.

      This pool vac works pretty good for the price.
      I have been using this vac and its earlier models since i put in the pool. This is #4. If you do not use a service, you will have to take ca re of some maint. yourself. It will deteriorate due to the pool chemistry over time. If you have steps and cranies it can get stuck. This wears out the pads that propel the vac. I recommend using the bumper. You will have to do a little fitting with a file to get it to fit flat to the bottom and not block the pods. Be carefull to not overtighten the screws ... read more as they can strip. The other parts can be replaced as needed.

      A very clever, easy-to-use design
      My husband and I have been wanting an automatic pool cleaner for years, but couldn't afford the high cost of the 'Polaris" and similar electric-powered cleaners. Allan's brother told us about this one and we ordered it right away. It's absolutely great! Rather than having an electric motor to worry about, this unit plugs right into the skimmer like a manual vacuum and is hydraulically powered by the water moving through. It also has relatively few moving parts and all are fairly easily ... read more accessible. For our 20' x 40' pool, it takes move like 3.5 to 4 hours to complete a cleaning job, but is worth the wait.There's a single door in the back of the unit that one opens to clean out fhe innards - takes only seconds. I wish, though, that the door had a locking mechanism that did not require a screwdriver (Phillips at that), because we don't normally keep a toolkit in the pool area -- but this is a very minor complaint about an otherwise excellent product.

      Very Good Service
      We have always received good service wehn we order from In the Swim. The delivery is fast and the tracking helps us calculate the arrival time. This little cleaner works excellent. We have had one for almost five years and we gave this one to our son for his pool. It requires little or no maintanance and doss a sparkling job. Don't hesitate to order from this company and the products are great.

      Great Purchase and Customer Service
      This pool cleaner is very easy to put together and use. It is not so heavy that you struggle getting it in and out of the pool like some of the bigger pool cleaners. This cleaner is not suitable for soft sided pools, however customer service is very accomodating and helpful with any concerns you might have.

      Using my original FOREVER!!!
      I have been using my original one for 16 years!!! Over the years, I have had to buy new hoses, which become expensive, so I bought a second one because it was cheaper to do that than to replace all the hoses and the bag. My original actually worked better than the new one, so that is the one I have continued to use just replacing the hoses. Cleans the pool sparkling clean and I never have to use the vacuum for debris!

      Great in the beginning!
      We've had our above ground pool about 6 years and have gone through 3 Polaris 65. We have mild winters so left it connected the first 2 years with no problems. 3rd year, hard winter so disconnected it ,next summer it made funny noises and went in circles and kept turning over. Once it almost drained the pool! Took it to our local pool store, they charged $75 to "Replace the inner workings ". Still had problems. Read where to stretch the hose in sunshine, did that, no help. Long story short, on ... read more 3rd one, now having same issues. Please tell me another pool cleaner to buy.

      Great product
      I was skeptical about this pool cleaner at first, but once it was hooked up, it t did a wonderful job cleaning my pool. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. I did have to buy an extension hose for my 18 x 33 oval pool.

      Aqua Critter review
      one of the best pool cleaners I've used in above ground pools.... the only problem is it takes longer when cleaning a round pool, and you have to move it a couple times to make sure it cleans the entire pool.... but, moving it maybe 2 times isn't that big of a deal, it'll eventually clean the entire pool, it's just that it has a harder time with rounded pools. so, 4 stars cause of the rounded pool issue.

      Hard working little bug
      I had purchased this about a month ago - was a bit leery that it would work well, but wow...I was surprised. It's way easier than doing it manually. It takes about 2-3 hr for my 24' round above ground pool, but I don't mind. It takes literally 5 min to connect everything, and then I just let it do its thing. Saves me effort, mosquito bites, and makes the bottom look great. It also won't poke a hole in the liner so that's a plus. Even if it wears out in 2 or 3 seasons...it's the best ... read more money I've ever spent on pool maintenance.

      Excellent product
      Wanda was the best pool investment we ever made next to the pool itself. We hook her up and she goes to work, keeping our pool crystal clear and perfectly clean. I hate to vacuum the pool, but three months into the pool season and we have not used our manual vacuum even once; Wanda does it all.

      won't give her up
      When I was considering buying a pool cleaner, I was very sceptical about Wanda or anything like it, but I bought it anyway because I spent so much time with the hand held pool vac and due to an injury I had to find another way so Hereeeeeeee's WANDA, the best purchase I made for my pool. I don't know what the person was talking about that said it takes him 30 minutes to hook it up cause he must be doing something wrong it takes about 5 minutes at the most. I tell everyone "you have to get Wanda ... read more for your pool" I won't do without it and if the one I have breaks and can't be fixed I'll buy another one. This is my second season with my Wanda.

      Excellent for Above-ground pool
      With my 18ft round 52in. deep pool, I had to upgrade from 1000 gph pump with Type A/C filter to a 1500 gph pump with larger Type B filter. Better filtration and better performance with Wanda. Easy to install, only 5 minutes to connect hoses to skimmer. Definitely need leaf catcher accessory, sold separately. Highly recommend this cleaner.
