    Hayward 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

      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.

      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.

      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.

      good purchase for the money
      i bought this whale to clean the pool because with the hand vacuum you have to get into the pool and all the dirt is stirred up so you cant see where it needs to be cleaned. It works well but its kinda slow we leave it in the pool over night and the pool is clean in the morning as long as you take the ladder out. Price is good for the investment i have had no problems with it.

      I have not opened my pool yet this year but I am confident my new pool vac will work fine. It will be the 3rd or 4th one I have had over the years.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      The pool vs. Deodar cedar needles------
      Used to get bombarded by the cedar tree needles---real hassle keeping the pool clean. My wife thought up placing an old nylon stocking inside the mesh collection bag and PRESTO-----virtually all the needles that made their way to the pool bottom were snared in the trap!!

      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.

      excellent pool cleaner
      I have two diffrent pool cleaners the Aqua critter is the best . I have a suggestion when you store your hoses make sure you keep them as straight as possible .I made a stand for my hoses out of red wood 2x4's and pvc pipe have had them since 1998. The other cleaner I have is a pool rover jr. and it is alot more expensive and does not clean as well. When my Aqua Critter ever quits I will definitely purchase outher one . they have many parts for this unit so it may be a long time

      Fantastic Time Saver
      This little Aqua Critter, we call Eunice, has given me back my life! It cleans our 24’ X 12’ pool so all I have to do is scoop out the leaves. Before Eunice I had to spend at least an hour vacuuming each night after work. It took me a while to actually figure out how to hook Eunice up to the pool. YouTube showed me how to hook Eunice up to my Intex pool. I took the hose that runs from the filter to the pump and, after closing the valve to the pool, I jammed Eunice’s hose tightly into the hose ... read more going into the pump and turn it to filter. Viola! It worked! Eunice runs about 3 – 4 hours a night. Occasionally she gets stuck by the pool ladder so I just slide her out of the way and off she goes! I would highly recommend this little Aqua Critter.

    Hayward is a brand that has become synonymous with pool maintenance. By manufacturing high quality pool supplies for both inground and above ground pools, Hayward continues to be one of the most respected pool supply manufacturers in North America. Hayward automatic pool cleaners for in-ground pools are designed to ease the maintenance schedule of the pool owner by effectively and efficiently cleaning the surfaces of your swimming pool.

    There are three types of Hayward automatic pool cleaners. Suction, Pressure, and Robotic. Each type of cleaner is suited best to different environments and needs.
