      Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Whale Automatic Above Ground Pool cleaner I was surprised how well it works and the ease of getting it started. Like most I felt for the price I would be lucky if it worked at all. Eliminated the pain of vacuuming it pool, now I just put it in the pool and walk away.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanda is Amazing!! Wanda does an amazing job at cleaning our pool. Just put her in and let her go to work. Keeps the water nice and crystal clear with little effort. Highly recommend her. Needed additional hoses so she can reach the far end of our 15x30 pool.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Does a great job. Take about 2 hours to clean the pool bottom. Hoses were a little short for my 33 foot pool. So I am now looking for extra hose sections and the leaf catcher shown in the owner's manual.
