    Hayward Above-Ground Cleaners

    1. 1 year ago
      Good vacum
      I bought this vacum because my battery powered one finally quit on me . Well I was super excited about Wanda . The only issues I have is the pool fittings for this doesn't fit all pool filters had to go to wharehouse to buy additional parts no biggie. Tail doesn't fit holes probably so won't stay on not a biggie either . But my pump still must not be strong enough because I hooked up according to directions and Wanda moved a little then stopped. Had to keep adjusting it to move about pool.

      Works better than expected
      I bought this a few weeks ago to replace a worn out, 12 year old Zodiac Manta. I was familiar with the Manta and thought it did a good job. I started using Wanda the Whale and saw a significant improvements. Wanda cleaned the pool much quicker than the Manta. The dome shape of Wanda does not allow the vacuum to get stuck at the base of the ladder like the Manta would. The plastic that Wanda is made of seems more fragile than of the Manta. There are also more moving parts on Wanda that ... read more may cause problems some day. Time will tell whether I can get 12 years out of Wanda like I did with the Manta.

      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.

      How do you order new bags
      I like this product would give higher rating but after 3 years I need new bags can not find. Any one with a part number?

      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.

      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.

      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

      Read the fine print
      We love the Critter. It sucks up all the debris on the bottom of the pool. We just wish the leaf canister that In the Swim has listed below the Critter worked with above ground pools, since the Critter is meant for above ground pools. We have several trees in our yard, so our filter fills up rather quickly. It would be nice if we did not have plug the holes then bend over to empty the leaves.

      Does a good job-not a speedy process
      We bought our Critter last year and have used it almost every week during swimming season. The Critter does a good job and is easy to assemble. Just put the hoses together, put the critter in the water and force the air out of it, hook it up to the skimmer and let it go. The bad part is that it is slow and it doesn't do the walls. The good part is that where it does go it does an excellent job. All in all it IS worth the money. It saves us time because we just hook it up and let it run. The ... read more Critter stops moving when it is time to backwash the filter. I would give it a B+ for a grade.

      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.

      I am very pleased with my purchase! I bought about 2 months ago and i am so happy i did!! Penguin misses a little bit around the edges but besides that she saves me A Lot of time to do other things!

      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.
