      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.

      An excellent product
      I bought the Kreepy Krauly about a year ago figuring that possibly the product wouldn't be as good as advertised because of the price. Boy, was I wrong. This thing is fantastic. I have a large inground pool and several trees in close proximity to it, so I was constantly spending 2 or 3 hours on a Saturday morning cleaning my pool. Now I just put the Kreepy Krauly in the pool and forget it. It can do it's work while I'm at work, running errands or even overnight while I'm sleeping. There are ... read more virtually no parts to wear out and nothing else needed to keep my pool clean all summer long. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a pool. This thing is GREAT!!!!!!!!!

      Love updated model
      I have used Creepy Crawlers for many, many years. I love this model because the suction hose goes through the skimmer suction rather than through the top of the skimmer that required the skimmer cover to be left off. I first ran my old model cleaner with very little results and then installed the new cleaner and it took off! I love it!

      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.

      Good investment
      I am very happy to have purchased this item. We have a lot of trees in our yard and we need to vacuum our 15x30 pool at least 3-4 times a week, even more if we get a storm. With children, work...etc, it's so hard to find the time. This vacuum does all my work for me. Just drop it in and let it go! What a time saver. It was extremely easy to assemble and just as easy to operate. It was getting stuck on our steps at the far end of the pool so I just shortened the hose so that is no longer an issue.

      Great timesaver
      I love not having to stand at the edge of the pool for an hour vacuuming it out myself. I just throw this in a couple of hours before we are going swimming and it takes care of it for me. Sometimes I have to pull it to a few spots that were missed but for the most part it gets the majority of the stuff. It's definitely a keeper!

      HE IS MY POOL GUY!
      I LOVE MY KREEPY KRAULY. HE IS VERY EFFICIENT FOR MY ABOVE GROUND. I HAVE NAMED HIM FRANCO. I VERY EASILY ATTACH HIM TO MY INTAKE BASKET. HE LOVES TO RUN AROUND IN MY POOL CLEANING EVERY LITTLE SPECK. I NO LONGER HAVE TO GET THAT BIG BRUSH VACCUM OUT AND TORTURE MY SELF FOR HALF A DAY. I JUST SWIM AROUND AT THE SAME TIME HE IS CLEANING. I STORE HIM ON MY DECK. THE HOSE IS HUNG AROUND A HOOK ON THE OUTSIDE OF MY DECK. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR IT'S OVERALL EFFICIENTCY.

      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.

      Excellent product
      Wanda was the best pool investment we ever made next to the pool itself. We hook her up and she goes to work, keeping our pool crystal clear and perfectly clean. I hate to vacuum the pool, but three months into the pool season and we have not used our manual vacuum even once; Wanda does it all.

      Very Impressed with the Whale!
      I was very impressed with how well the Whale cleaned up my pool. I am new to pools and filled my above ground pool with my very rusty well water. I added this blue chemical to bond to the rust and fall to the pool floor (I wish I never added this chemical). So I had a constant battle of vacuuming this mess up. Then I got the Whale and it made quick work of it! I just wish I would of known to vacuum that rust mess to waste. The rust mess clogged up my sand filter very fast so the whale ... read more would stop moving. Once I back washed the whale would get back at it! Very happy with my purchase! I really was surprised as to how well the whale works. Also, I was able to take advantage of the free 1 Day Shipping! I ordered it Thursday and got it on my porch Friday. Thank you In The Swim!

      A very clever, easy-to-use design
      My husband and I have been wanting an automatic pool cleaner for years, but couldn't afford the high cost of the 'Polaris" and similar electric-powered cleaners. Allan's brother told us about this one and we ordered it right away. It's absolutely great! Rather than having an electric motor to worry about, this unit plugs right into the skimmer like a manual vacuum and is hydraulically powered by the water moving through. It also has relatively few moving parts and all are fairly easily ... read more accessible. For our 20' x 40' pool, it takes move like 3.5 to 4 hours to complete a cleaning job, but is worth the wait.There's a single door in the back of the unit that one opens to clean out fhe innards - takes only seconds. I wish, though, that the door had a locking mechanism that did not require a screwdriver (Phillips at that), because we don't normally keep a toolkit in the pool area -- but this is a very minor complaint about an otherwise excellent product.

      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.

      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.

      Takes practice
      First time I used this little critter I was getting frustrated. You really need to learn how to use this. First there was a partial blockage in the suction throat which I thought was a part of the unit. It was a perfect fit of a plastic piece of something or another. Then it worked better. Second use, was getting stuck against the wall. When placing in the pool I didn't make sure rollers were in proper position. Made rollers adjustment it worked fine. Third time was a charm. This product ... read more really does clean debris from the bottom of the pool. If it worked as well the first time out of the box or even the second time I would have rated 5 stars.

      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.

      What I Needed
      Great product! I only got to use it about 2 times before I had to close the pool, but worked exactly as needed.
    2. 3 years ago
      Very effective
      Watching it work reminds me of a Dyson. No large debris gets past it and into the filter.

      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 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 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.

      Finally got my pool boy! (Well, penguin!)
      This little penguin does a super job! We have an 18 foot pool....and she gets it clean in about 1.5 hours!....plenty of time for me to get other chores done before pool time!

    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.
