    Suction Cleaners

    1. 10 years ago
      Great Buy
      This is my second one (I had to replace it after about 12 years). It is a great cleaner, very easy to set up and just let it do its job. The only problem I have with it is that it misses one portion of our above ground pool (because the water return pushes it away). Obviously this isn't a huge problem since I did replace our old one.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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!

      Real Problem Solver
      The Polaris Unicover really does what it says! The pool cleaner is able to work without getting caught on the bottom drain cover. It takes the worry out of cleaning the pool.

      Great Purchase!!
      I have an inground liner pool and an Aquabot T2 robotic cleaner. The Aquabot was continually getting stuck on the main drain. I read a previous review of an Aquabot user that said the unicover was a must. I now agree 100%!!!! The unicover totally solved my Aquabot hang up issue. The unicover doesn't fit tightly, but I found out that it really doesn't matter. It stays in place great. It only took me about 5 minutes to put the cover together and get it in place. The only issue that I had was ... read more finding the page of instructions that was in English. Great product for an Aquabot user!!!!

      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.

      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.

      Very Good Service
      We have always received good service wehn we order from In the Swim. The delivery is fast and the tracking helps us calculate the arrival time. This little cleaner works excellent. We have had one for almost five years and we gave this one to our son for his pool. It requires little or no maintanance and doss a sparkling job. Don't hesitate to order from this company and the products are great.

      Easy to use

      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.

      Very effective
      Watching it work reminds me of a Dyson. No large debris gets past it and into the filter.

      LOVE IT - LOVE IT - LOVE IT
      I purchased a home with a pool - and knew absolutely ZERO about maintaining it - - - I was lucky and the water cleared up quickly (from green sludge) but I could never get the floor vacuumed very clean. A friend suggested a pool vacuum critter - so I purchased this one and WOW!!!! I wish I had done it the day we opened the pool! Now my pool is as clean as any I have ever seen! Crystal Clear - Sparkling Blue ! And all I have to do is plug the hose into the bottom of the skimmer ! How simple is ... read more that! MUCH MUCH EASIER than talking my kids into vacuuming!

      Hard working little bug
      I had purchased this about a month ago - was a bit leery that it would work well, but wow...I was surprised. It's way easier than doing it manually. It takes about 2-3 hr for my 24' round above ground pool, but I don't mind. It takes literally 5 min to connect everything, and then I just let it do its thing. Saves me effort, mosquito bites, and makes the bottom look great. It also won't poke a hole in the liner so that's a plus. Even if it wears out in 2 or 3 seasons...it's the best ... read more money I've ever spent on pool maintenance.

      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.

      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!!

      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.

      A must have for cleaning your pool.

      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!

      Great addition
      I heard about this product from my son's neighbor and felt the price plus rebate was such a great deal that I should give it a try. I'd been thinking of getting an automatic cleaner for a couple of years, but the $1500 to $2000 figure given me by my local pool shop was unreasonable in my mind. I have been overwhelmed with the ability of this product to clean not only the floor, but the walls also in such a short period of time. I do recommend purchasing the skimmer basket attachment as it is ... read more absolutely necessary for catching the few leaves, pinestraw and other items that accumulate occasionally.

    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.
