    Above-Ground Cleaners

    1. 2 years ago
      Beats using a manual vacuum cleaner!
      I gave it a three star because it works great on my sisters pool but in my pool it goes slow. She has a chlorine? pool rectangle shape, mine is salt and a t-shape.

      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!

      Takes some tweaks
      I bought this for Father's Day a few weeks ahead of time. We laid the hose out in the sUn for a week, as advised to keep it from winding up in the pool. When we first tried it 4 days ago, it continually coiled up. I called tech support and they advised me to release some of the pressure using the knob where it connects to the pool. That knob does not work easily. I had to get pliers and work on it, but eventually opened it all the way. That helped greatly and the Polaris made it all the way ... read more around our 30-foot pool. Then, it started coiling up again and continues to do so after about 15 minutes of working well. One side of our pool is really clean. I've seen online that we may need to open it up and make some adjustments. I haven't done so yet and don't think I should have to on a brand, new device.

      I LOVE this product
      I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I have my pool filter attached to a timer so it goes on and off automatically; and I keep the Polaris 65 hooked up unless we are using the pool. As a result I haven't had to vacum the pool since I bought this product. The pool is now essentially self maintaining and always sparkling clean. In fact, it's cleaner than when I vacumed the pool myself. When first installed the Polaris would flip over (because the presure from the filter return was too strong), but once I reduced ... read more the water pressure with the regulator valve that comes with the Polaris, it slowed down and has worked perfectly ever since.

      1st one great, 2nd one not worth it
      I purchased this product about 6 years ago and it worked great - 5 stars! I would leave it hooked up all week with no problems and pool maintenance was minimal. The hose from the unit to the debris bag finally gave out and is not offered as a separate item so I purchased a new unit. After 4 months, the hose on the new unit has started to disconnect from the unit causing the unit to stop moving around the pool and preventing the return of filtered/chlorinated pool water from properly circulating ... read more and requiring a lot more pool maintenance. I give the new unit 1 star rating. Overall 3 star rating as a combination of the two.

      Decent for the price
      First of all, for all you people complaining that it is letting air into your pump, you have it connected to the wrong line. This is not meant to suck debris into your filter, it is meant for the water that discharges out of your pump and back into your pool to go into this pool cleaner. It uses the water pressure FROM your pump to move around back and forth, as well as operate a venturi to bring debris into a screened compartment. There is no way it can suck air into your pump, unless you have ... read more it connected to the wrong side of your pump. I had to bypass my solar collectors to get enough water flow to operate properly. Be sure you have a pump that delivers at least 1200 GPM. I think it could use more suction, though. I'll leave it run overnight and see how things look in the morning.

      LOVE THIS CLEANER !!!!
      This is year 2 using this cleaner! It works off the return. I have a 20 ft with a sand filter system. I have bought several automatic cleaners and this the only one that works and has kept working! I don't have to fight with air in the lines either :) It does move debris around (as it changes water pressure to move another direction) & doesn't always pick everything up on the first pass - but give it a chance! Let it run while you go do something else and come back and it will be clean! My only ... read more negative is that when I remove it from the pool I need someone able to turn off the filter at the same time - so debris does not go back into the pool and the water doesn't flood my porch lol. But all of the time saved to have a clean pool and positives of this cleaner far outweigh this!

      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!

      It's ok, but not what I expected
      I purchased this based on others reviews and the price seemed more reasonable. It is not exactly what I expected. It does not completely go forward all the way & backward all the way, it stops short of getting to the walls & does not climb the walls all the way to the tile as others have stated. However the machine is easy to open & netting that comes with it is easy to put on. I ran it on large pool and there was a lot of sand and leaves it had picked up but there is not a consistent line of ... read more cleaning, it missed a lot! It also shuts off or quits working after the allotted (per "large pool") 2 hours and I had to pull it from the deep end near the drains and tried to restart it on large pool, it did the same moves. I have a 26,000 gallon pool with a 4 ft shallow & 8 ft deep end and dramatic stairs with a tanning ledge. So much for hoping to not have to brush my pool to keep it clean. Others stated they could "tweak it" but I have not found where that is possible on this machine. I would recommend for a really small pool, but not large.

      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!

      Easy cleaning process
      Mine just passed away after 5 full years of service. I never used a hose to clean the pool again since I bought the first one. Im ordering the same one today.

      Great cleaner - great price.
      After years of consistent use, I replaced my Ranger with The Splasher. I've only had it a few months now, but am truly pleased with its performance. I purchased mainly because of the price and so far it's been a great deal. I'll update this review at a later date.

      Manual is worthless, product rocks
      The manual has tiny pics, tiny print, and is next to impossible to read. Wife and I put it together by taking pics of the manual and zooming. 2 extra parts, Put it together expecting failure, but, this thing, this thing rocks. WOW, a little disappointed that the hose kept getting tangled, but we'll try something different next time we use it. I WOULD suggest this to anyone tired of standing there and going back and forth. Works like a charm.

      Works great in smaller above ground pool!
      I like this pool cleaner, it does a good job. This is the first automatic cleaner that keeps moving around the pool (above ground, 18’ round). I keep my eye on it as one time it scooted under the ladder. It was easy to clear from the ladder and it hasn’t done that again. This was a good purchase.

      Turtleman is awesome!
      I bought this to get the leaves and sediment on the bottom of the pool that was clogging our Diver Dave up. It was a great purchase and does as expected.

      Great product
      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

      Fantastic aid for pool enjoyment!
      We've had Tyler (the turtle) since we put the pool in over 10 years ago. He really takes a lot of trouble out of pool care. He even picked up a nail that I dropped in the pool while taking the cover off. With him and our Frog clorinating system, my whole pool care regiment takes under an hour each month. And I have crystal clear water with all the chemicals in balance.
