      Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great, simple and sized right I've had my sand shark for several weeks now and the pool is cleaner than it's ever been. Easy to hook up if you have a modern pool with a side suction built into the pool. Plug in the hose, adjust hose length and weights, balance the suction at the filter, split the suction between the cleaner and the skimmer and away she goes. Give it too much suction and she'll climb right out of the pool, give it just enough to climb the wall slowly. I placed the weights at each end of the 3rd hose section and I found that it likes to have the full hose, don't shorten it ( the hose comes in 3' sections) I just love this little sucker! My pool is 35' x 14'.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of four Great cleaner. I gave up on a newly purchased AquaBot within a month. I have owned two earlier Kreepy Krauleys and the sand shark is the best yet, but advisable to use with leaf canister to avoid frequent pump cleaning.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from My worst nightmare I followed the instructions exactly and installed it just as it said. Before I put it in the water, I hand vacuumed the pool and backflushed the filter to provide every chance for this device to succeed. As I stood and watched it move accross the pool, it climbed the wall and got stuck on the glass of the pool light. After I put it back on the bottom it went right back up the wall and stuck itself to the glass over the pool light again. After removing it from the glass, I took it to the opposite side of the pool and it promptly stopped itself against the concrete step. After five hours of constanly dislodging it from various stalls, I removed it from the pool and prepared it for it's return to "IN THE SWIM". Leaves that fell into the pool while under operation were promptly driven to the bottom by the trailing hose, however the pool sweeper, while in motion, failed to pick them up. After removing the sweeper, I had to revacuum the pool to remove these leaves. This is a case of "BUYER BEWARE".

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clean I've had this cleaner for almost 2 weeks and I love it. My Hayward (previous cleaner) broke and was without one for about a month or 2 so we had a lot of debris in the pool (not screened in) I took my lunch break and put the sand shark in and I was amazed that when i got home from work that my pool was clean clean clean. It was reaching all areas just fine where as my Hayward once it got to the jets it would losen up suction and go back to the other end of the pool the sand shark does not do that at all. Its like it has its own attitude the jets do not phase it at all. Its amazing how the little things that make a big difference. Im also grateful that we were able to do the payment plan. This is the first time we have to buy one of these and didnt realize how extremely pricey they get. It is however worth it to spend a little more so it can get the job done right...Thanks In the Swim.!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sandshark I have a 44' by 22' kidney shaped pool that is surrounded by trees.... I purchased the Kreepy Krauler Sandshark 2 months ago and have used it continuously.... So far it has performed well cleaning the floors and walls especially after it rains and all of the debris falls off the trees....It also cleans small leaves and acorns. Our pool has rounded walls at the bottom so the Sandshark has no problem climbing the walls... Whether it would climb the walls of a rectangular pool where the walls are perpendicular may be a different story... The great part is that it is priced right,, runs directly off of the filter and does not require a separate hookup... It has done a great job for me... Try it...

      Problem Corrective Action

      If SandShark™ moves slow or fails to climb walls:

      • Dirty filter – Clean the filter.
      • Dirty basket in pump hair and lint strainer – Clean the basket.
      • Debris blocking the bottom of the cleaner – Remove the Debris.
      • Leaks in the hose – Remove the leaky section.
      • Debris in the regulator – Clean the regulator valve.
      • Low water flow through the cleaner – Close the main drain.

      If SandShark™ doesn’t move or pulsates slowly

      • Make sure that the main drain and all other suction lines are closed except the suction line

      Or doesn’t climb pool walls properly: to which the SandShark™ is attached.

      • Check for sufficient flow through cleaner hose.
      • Check for debris in the filter or the pump strainer basket.
      • Check for debris in the SandShark’s oscillator. Debris may prevent oscillator movement or restrict the flow through the cleaner.
      • Check the oscillator for: damage; lost seals (there should be 4 seals): obstructed seals

      (Seals should slide freely on the oscillator).

      • Be sure that the short, soft flexible leader hose section is the first section in the hose assembly (next to the cleaner).

      If SandShark™ climbs pool wall to water surface

      • Reduce water flow through cleaner; see Adjust Flow on page 4, 6 or 8.

      And sucks air:

      • To install the eyeball diverter as follows:

      1. Turn off the main circulation pump.

      2. Unscrew the lock rings from the pool’s return line fittings and remove the original eyeball diverters.

      3. Replace them with the SandShark’s eyeball diverters.

      4. Replace the lock rings and tighten them. Be sure that the openings of the eyeball diverters point down (6:00 o’clock position) or to the side (3:00 or 9:00 o’clock positions), before fully tightening the rings.

      • Usually, directing the return line water flow against the side of the pool (as described above) works best. However, you may want to try pointing the flow downward or in different positions to see which works best in the pool.
      • After installing the eyeball diverter, turn the circulation pump on.
      • The SandShark™ should begin moving across the pool floor, vacuuming up The debris in its path.

      5. If the SandShark’s eyeball diverters do not fit your existing return line fittings, Adjust your existing fittings as best you can as described above.

      If SandShark™ tracks in a repetitive pattern:

      • Check the pool return line water flow and redirect it as necessary with a return line eyeball diverter (see above “To install the eyeball diverter”).
      • Check the SandShark’s hose to be sure that it has not become bent or kinked. Do not coil the hose, as it will retain the coiled shape and reduce the cleaning coverage.
      • To check the hose, lay each hose section flat on the pool deck (or another flat surface) and look down the length of the hose. It should be perfectly flat and straight. Replace any sections which are bent or kinked.
      • Check the oscillator for: damage; lost seals (there should be 4 seals): obstructed seals (seals should slide freely on the oscillator).
      • Be sure that the short, soft flexible leader hose section is the first section in the hose section.
