    Hayward 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.

      Hayward Pool Vac - Skimmer connection
      I've had this cleaner for about 4 years now, and I've replaced the "feet" twice, and the paddles on each side. It constantly gets stuck at the steps, which scratches various surfaces of the cleaner. My biggest complaint is that leaves get stuck in the "throat" , and constantly requires me to pull clumps of leaves out to get the machine moving again. My house is surrounded by tall mature trees, and due to leaf production, this equipment just doesn't do the job at my location. Probably fine where ... read more there are no large trees nearby.

      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.

      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.

      Works great!
      This works great for general automatic vacuming of the pool. Let it run over night and your pool will be clean by morning. Make sure to backwash your filter before starting it...it will slow down to a crawl if you have a very dirty pool and don't backwash the filter every couple of hours. It cleaned my 12' x 24' oval pool in about 3.5 hours and it got everything! Pull your ladder off if you are able as it will likely get caught up on it.

      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.

      Excellent Pool Cleaner
      I have a small above-ground pool and this cleaner works quickly and efficiently. Easy to assemble and fun to watch as it goes about its' business. I used the Hayward Aqua Critter satisfactorily for several years before I dropped it and it broke. A few years ago, I hooked up my sand filter unknowingly switching the intake/outtake hoses and my pool bottom was covered with sand. This cleaner sucked out all the sand and I was able to enjoy the pool once again. Best cleaner I have ever purchased and ... read more I have had several over the years. Hayward is a trusted brand. I am well pleased with this handy must have!

      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 autonomous cleaner.
      We have had the Hayward aqua bug up until this year, this is the same mechanics with a different exterior. The cleaner works very well but occasionally gets hung on the ladder, also the tail attachment (cosmetic only) keeps falling off. That's the only reason I deducted a star. If you have an above ground pool it's a must have. No more vacuuming, just pop it in the pool and after an hour or two remove the cleaner, clean out the filter basket, backwash and you have a clean pool.

      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.

      Great looking and worth the price
      I bought this instead of a higher end model just for the reason my 9 year old daughter loved the penguin. After I received it , assembled it , it worked awesome. The cost for this Hayward cleaner keeps up with the higher end model. Due to a local storm it clogged once with a large twig (branch). I would definitely suggest this product and company to friends and family for there fast and secure service.

      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
      I bought this a few weeks ago it has saved me a lot of time cleaning my pool due to not having to back wash my sand pump and keeps yuk out of it also.

      Bought this from Amazon after reading reiews.
      After reading all the Amazon reviews decided it would save a lot climbing out and saves climbing out and back in the pool to empty pump basket. Works like a charm. I can see where some comments about handles breaking were related to how they removed the top. A little attention to that issue will alleviate the problem by not using the handle for a grip while removing the lid. The device works as advertised and save lots of time and frustration!
