      Great value! Super company support!
      Terrific cleaner, easy to use. It climbs the walls and does a great job on the sides and floor of my gunite pool. Hayward tech support the best around. Even out of warranty, they are absolutely the best company to do business with. I have used this cleaner for 4+ years. Once, under warranty, overnighted it to them, they completely rebuilt the unit, and paid for return shipping, all done within 5 days -- no charge. Out of warranty, they did the same - no charge! Works flawlessly. Occasionally, if ... read more big debris (rocks, tile grout flaking off), get caught inside, it's fairly easy to get this out. Need to check the "flippers", which occasionally either need to be replaced or re-attached. Otherwise, no complaints. I use it in conjunction with a leaf/debris catcher (separate item). The best thing about it is, there are no electrical cords to mess with, you can leave the unit and the hose floating in the pool when not in use....just disengage it from the skimmer and let it float!

      Not whats pictured
      I ordered this the other day and when it arrived it wasnt exactly what is pictured. It did come in a hayward box and the outer case looks the same but has a handle on it. The one I recieved has a blue net inside instead of the hard plastic basket. I would have prefered the basket as it seems it would be a lot more durable and less prone to damage then the supplied net that is in the canister.

      In-line Leaf Filter works well
      I bought this to put in-line on my water bug pool bottom cleaner. Easy to put in service. Relatively easy to empty, but you will get wet doing so. With pine trees in the area, I always seem to collect needles and this stops most of them from getting to my pump. The only drawback is that the lid can be very hard to pull open. I found that useing some petroleum jelly on the screws and gasket make getting it open much easier.

      Did the job I expected
      I bought this pool vacuum and works great. Plus you can't beat the price. I would recommend this vacuum 100 times over.

      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 ... read more 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!!!!!!!!

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"!!!

      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.

      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.

      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

      Works great
      Bought this to clean our above ground pool and I am so glad I did. Whitin an hour my 27' foot pool is clean. No more manual cleaning. If you have an above ground pool I highly recommend this product.

      Great pool cleaner!
      I purchased this cleaner two weeks ago and have used it three times. I was a little skeptical from the reviews about hose length. I have a 24 ft. round pool and it has plenty of hose. It gets it all. Pool was really dirty and the first time took longer. Now in about two hours it's done. Absolutely love love love it!

      Excellent Vacuum!
      We have a 20 foot by 4 foot deep round above ground pool. This is a great vacuum as it cleans the entire pool of large and small debris on the floor of the pool. Our pump is a 1500 hog so we had to take out one section of the hose to give the vacuum more power as it was stopping for no known reason. It works great now, keeps the pool clean and it is simple to clean the vacuum. This is a terrific buy for the money!

      Great product.
      I have used it for two years now. I have the intex 32X16 pool. The only thing is it don't do corners very good, but it cleans up leaves and dirt very good. I read some of the comments they loose vacuum. if so you are hooked up wrong. this unit hooks to your return water side. It does not vacuum like most cleaners. nothing goes to your filter. It uses return water pressure to make it move. It has it's own filter inside the unit. easy to open and clean filter.

      I Love the automatic pool cleaner, The only complaint I would have is the hose gets tangled a few times in the 3 hours I use it

      WOW...Should of bought years ago !!!!!
      I bought this a Month ago, opened the pool up, having holes from squires on it, and it was GREEN !! I mean Kermit the frog home GREEN....opened the box, put the mesh filter bags on, threw it in, plugged it in, set it for large pool and BAM !!! it started working...after a few times filling the mesh bags I switched to the fine filter bags and soon the pool was back to swim condition. I wish I had seen this before !!! I had the POLARIS 65 before for years buying 3 over the years not cleaning well ... read more and worst of all having the unit flip over many times (usually when i'm not home) and EMPTY MY POOL FOR ME !!!! What a great device !! REVIEW15

      This cleaner is working great for my pool. My pool is surrounded by trees, always dropping things into the pool, so I didn't want a vacuum system that goes through my filter. This has been working great since I got it.

      Great Purchase--Like having a MAID for my pool!
      I bought the pool Rover a month ago, and have used it weekly since to keep the pool sparkling clean! It is so nice to be able to do other chores, and have the pool ready for a quick splash to cool off. This thing is WAY more helpful than my kids! We have an octogon pool, with a depth running from 3 feet to 8 feet deep and it does a great job---even the walls, which is still pretty amazing for me to watch! I realize that I am easily entertained, but the first time out of the box, both my daughter ... read more and I sat beside the pool with a cold drink and just watched the Rover manuver and clean!
