    Hayward Above-Ground Cleaners

    1. 8 years ago
      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.

      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.

      a must have
      This definelty is awesome time saver to clean pool. This is my 3rd one. First one lasted 5-6 years. Second one only lasted three. Needed new rubber feet and plastic wheel was lost; decided to buy new instead of wasting $ on replacement parts. I first up-graded to Shark; returned it and got this. Much better product.

      very industrious critter
      Our new Aqua Critter is replacing an aging and broken Polaris 65, and I must say that I'm glad we switched. The Bug (as we call it) is easier to set up, and did it's job with no trouble. Our pool floor has no wrinkles, but is a bit dimply, so I had some minor concern about the need for a "smooth" pool bottom. There was no difficulty, however. I love the way it cleans the fine silt - something the Polaris, as dependable as it was, never did. If we encounter too much heavy debris, we can always ... read more add the leaf canister. Removing it from the water, section by section, was easier as well.

      Easy Peasy Sparkling Water
      This is the best purchase we have ever made for our pool. We had an automatic pool vac that came with our above ground pool, but it was such a hassle to start and keep going that we abandoned it ages ago. After years of wearing myself out cleaning the pool, we finally broke down and, based on the reviews here, bought this little gem. The price is good -- it was $70 less here than at our local major chain pool store. I just put the Aqua Critter in and a couple of hours later, the pool is ... read more sparkling. I don't even have to get in the pool to start it; it's easy to get going from the side. I ordered the two extra pieces of hose for our 27-foot pool, but the vac came before those, so the first time we tried it, it left a ring of dirt around the outer edge of the pool. With the extra pieces, it does better, although there is still one area that it doesn't seem to get to. That's easy to fix -- I just nudge the Aqua Critter over that area and it picks it right up. It is fun to watch too. I love this piece of equipment and only wish I had had it the last 20 years.

      Can’t live without it!
      Ok so the reason I gave it 4 stars is these don’t last very long. I think this is the 4th one I have bought over the years. They make it 2-3 years. That being said I LOVE THEM!!! They work great, easy to put it and use and for the price I will keep buying them.

      OMG why didn't I buy this sooner!
      Purchased in May and have been using weekly - "Tux" has been keeping the pool spotless! I've had my above ground pool since 2004 and of all the items I've purchased, this is the absolute best $129 I've ever spent for it. We had an awful storm last week that knocked out the power for 2 days and left the pool covered in leaves and branches. With the help of Tux the pool is crystal clear again. He's the best. And he NEVER complains :)

      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.

      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

      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.

      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?

      Works great
      I purchased this so I didn’t have to use my pump and filter, it works like it’s supposed to and is easy to clean.

      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.
