      Must Have for Polaris
      This product is great and allowing me to enjoy the pool even more. Prior to purchasing the product, I would come home and see the Polaris sweeper stuck on the drain and the bottom of the pool still litered with debris. Now, I don't have to monitor the Polaris and when I come home from work, I can jump into the pool....no pausing to manually sweep the pool anymore.

      My Krepy Krawly kept getting stuck on my main drain but after installing this product It has never, I mean never, gotten stuck even once. I wish I had bought one years before. It's worth every penny you pay. After I ordered, The "In The Swim" company delivered it very, very quickly. It's almost like they had a store next door to me.

      works great with my dolphin dynamic
      my dolphin dynamic does a great job... when it is not spinning round and round stuck on the bottom drain. when i saw this product, i had to give it a try. installs easily. only a few screws. then you sink it to the bottom and it just rests over/around your existing drain. i have the standard hayward anti-vortex drain. the unicover fits over it, but not snugly, there is about a half inch of room all the way around. which scared me at first. i thought the dolphin might push it off. but it did not. ... read more it works great. no more getting stuck!

      Great delivery time
      Needed replacement parts quickly because we were preparing the pool to close. Got the parts in two days. Can't ask for anything better than that.

      Just what I needed!!!
      Bought replacement pad for my 5 year old kreepy krauly and it works like brand new! Saved money by not having to buy a whole new keep krauly. So glad I was able to purchase just replacement parts!

      Better without the regulator
      Love the way this cleans. Works extremely well and hits every part of the pool. The only problem we have experienced was due to the regulator. It would collect too much debris inside which reduced suction and would cause the device to float. It is a simple fix of removing the regulator and sealing the hose to the adapter with tape. Have had no issues since. We have a vinyl liner.

      The ONLY pool vac I'll ever buy
      When I bought my home with an existing pool 20 years ago, it came with a Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. After more than 15 years of use, the Kreepy needed to be replaced. I fought with hubby to purchase a new Kreepy, but his heart was set on a robotic cleaner that cost more than twice what a Kreepy cost. I was never happy with the robotic cleaner's performance - it never cleaned as well as my Kreepy. After the robotic's third breakdown in 3 years, I finally convinced hubby to go back to Kreepy ... read more Krauly. We are both tickled at how well this cleaner operates...and the rebate made the deal sweeter!

      Skeptical
      I am wondering how long the average unit lasts. We purchased May 2008 and this year, it quit working. We have avg sized pool and take very good care of the unit (don't use it during winter, dismantle hose and store well). Very disappointed that it quit working at the end of this season (4th season). Disappointed that the replacement part needed is $ 289!! But, in defense this is the story on most repairs these days. Our KK kept our pool sparkling clean but got stuck on the ladder repeatedly. ... read more When we installed the leaf canister, it completely took care of this issue. $100 per year is not bad to spend considering the time saved by having the pool cleaned for us, but I like things to last longer than this. I will research other brands prior to replacing.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Love my Penguin
      I purchased the Hayward Penguin above ground pool cleaner this summer. So far this has proven to be an outstanding product. It has exceeded my expectations. It's easy to assemble and hook up. I think "penny" is adorable and she keeps my pool sparkling clean. I definitely recommend this product.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      Impressive
      I've been using the cyclonic automatic cleaner with my automatic vacuum for a few weeks now. It really does keep the debris out of the filter basket.

      Easy to use
      Works well with my shark automatic Pool cleaner. My above groundouts is around a lot of trees this came in real handy!,

      Great asset for my pool
      Once I hooked it up I couldn't get over how well it worked. The only thing I can say is I wish I had bought it a long time ago.

      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.

      Great Product
      I use this with a Hayward Super Pump and a Kreepy Krauly suction side pool cleaner in an in-ground pool. When we are not in the pool I can pretty much leave the Pool cleaner in all the time now. The pump basket no longer fills up with leaves and debris from my neighbors dirty silver maple and black locust forest. Everything goes in the bag! Awesome! My water is cleaner and I haven't had to backwash as much this year. Lots of pool "Gadgets" don't always do what you hope, but this thing I love. ... read more Wish I had purchased it sooner.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Suction Pool Cleaners

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Suction Cleaner Automatic Pool Vacuums

    Shop from the most popular suction pool cleaners like the AquaNaut (The Pool Cleaner)Hayward Aqua CritterKreepy Krauly Sand Shark, and the Zodiac MX6 cleaner. Energy efficient suction pool cleaners use the power of your pool pump to vacuum debris and particles into your pool’s filter, and can be directed into specific patterns for customized cleaning.


    Benefits of Suction Pool Cleaners

     1. Lowest cost pool cleaners, starting at less than $100.
     2. Fewer moving parts and wearable parts, for less maintenance and repairs.
     3. No additional cost to operate, runs when your pool filter pump is running.
     4. Available Skim Vac Plates trap leaf debris in the skimmer basket.
     5. Available In-line Leaf Canisters handle large and heavy leaf debris. 

    How Suction Cleaners Work: Suction pool cleaners connect to your pool skimmer or dedicated vacuum line, and are powered by the suction of water from your pool pump. With models designed to clean in-ground and above ground pools, suction cleaners move about the pool to vacuum walls and floor, bringing the dirt and debris into the pump basket and pool filter for removal.

    Suction Cleaner Installation: Suction cleaners assemble in minutes without tools. Simply join the 4' hose sections together to reach the furthest part of the pool. Connect one end of the hose to the cleaner head, and the other into your skimmer or vacuum line. Adjust pump suction valves if needed to pull more water from the cleaner, and start moving the cleaner. A 1 hp pump or greater is recommended to provide enough suction power.

    If you have any questions about In The Swim's suction pool cleaners, please contact our pool experts via phone or email, for fast, professional service. Most of our suction cleaners are available with super-fast 1-day shipping and processing.
