    Above-Ground Cleaners

      Polaris 65
      I purchased my first Polaris 65 several years ago. I would not have had to purchase another one, but I needed to replace all the hoses, etc. I thought for the price, I would just buy a complete new one. However, I found the new one does not work as well as my old one. I actually am using my old cleaner with the new hoses and it's working perfectly. I wish I would have purchased just what I needed, but you live and learn. Anyway, the old blue and yellow 65 is the best.

      Excellent product
      This is the second Polaris 65 I have owned. I had the first one over 10 years and liked it so much I bought a new one when the main piece of it eventually got broken. It doesn't plug in to the intake of the pool, so you can continue putting chlorine tablets in the skimmer and having it skim off the top of the water. It instead plugs into the outtake and does an excellent job of keeping the bottom of the pool clean of bugs and debris. I do have a little trouble keeping the area around the ... read more skimmer/outtake clean. For some reason it doesn't want to clean around that area as well as it does the rest of the pool. I still think it's the best automatic pool cleaner you can buy.

      Very Satisfied
      This thing works great. Completely cleans everything from bottom of pool. Even used it to find a lost earring once. Only problem, as stated in another review (and why I gave only 4 stars), was the fact that it doesn't connect to my 18' EasySet. Here was my fix - I purchased a small hose, like the one that connects the skimmer that comes with the EasySet, and the same connector that connects the skimmer to the EasySet input valve. I connect this to the Polaris hose using a clamp. Total cost was about $10.00.

      Great product
      I Love the automatic pool cleaner, The only complaint I would have is the hose gets tangled a few times in the 3 hours I use it

      adjustment knob missing
      Pool Vac arrived , but I need/o suction adjuster @ left rear of unit. This I'm second Hayward Vac and I have always been pleased with it's performance, but I need to set it to setting III to get up my pool walls.

      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.

      Hayward Pool Vac - Skimmer connection
      I've had this cleaner for about 4 years now, and I've replaced the "feet" twice, and the paddles on each side. It constantly gets stuck at the steps, which scratches various surfaces of the cleaner. My biggest complaint is that leaves get stuck in the "throat" , and constantly requires me to pull clumps of leaves out to get the machine moving again. My house is surrounded by tall mature trees, and due to leaf production, this equipment just doesn't do the job at my location. Probably fine where ... read more there are no large trees nearby.

      OMG why didn't I buy this sooner!
      Purchased in May and have been using weekly - "Tux" has been keeping the pool spotless! I've had my above ground pool since 2004 and of all the items I've purchased, this is the absolute best $129 I've ever spent for it. We had an awful storm last week that knocked out the power for 2 days and left the pool covered in leaves and branches. With the help of Tux the pool is crystal clear again. He's the best. And he NEVER complains :)

      Bought this from Amazon after reading reiews.
      After reading all the Amazon reviews decided it would save a lot climbing out and saves climbing out and back in the pool to empty pump basket. Works like a charm. I can see where some comments about handles breaking were related to how they removed the top. A little attention to that issue will alleviate the problem by not using the handle for a grip while removing the lid. The device works as advertised and save lots of time and frustration!

      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.

      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.
    2. 3 months ago
      Wanda Works Hard!
      Wanda is wonderful! She does a great job in our 24ft round above ground pool. It gets lots of pine needles from our neighbor’s trees, and Wanda just eats them up. She’s a great buy, too!

      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!

I am in the process of closing my pool and buying this baby made it easy so it will be clean for Spring. I Would definetly recommend this to anyone with Above ground pool. I have a 24 ft round. P.S.

      Kreepy Krauly 'Lil Shark
      i have an 54x20 intex pool with a 1hp pump and 16in sand filter. first off i had to make an adapter to make it fit the filter line, not a big deal and definitely not my reason for a bad review. i have had this cleaner for one season, my biggest debris is dead algae and it does a great job of picking that up. the problem is that it wants to stay in one place it will clean a 10ft area spotless but no more. i found a trick though, if i tie the hose to the railing and move it around the pool ... read more throughout the day it does great.

      Best use of your time
      I purchased Wanda the whale. Had enough from rewards on scanning receipts at Walmart to purchase, so ordered it from there. Only had a few$ difference. For the cost & time it saves me alone, is worth its weight in gold. Having had a pool for 14 years prior, to purchasing "CONTEMPRA" it's an above ground pool---so the extra time I work on my tan.....lol Also the whale comes with 12 pieces of hose to connect to skimmer. My pool is 27 round, I had to order ( & they were here in 3 days, no rush, no ... read more charge for the extra hoses) 3 more pieces of hose allowed it to have plenty of hose, & move freely!!! :D would definitely recommend

      I bought Mamba Automatic Pool Vacuum about a month ago, service on delivery was great got it in two days. The product works great in my above ground pool it picks up everything even Little Rock pebbles, down to the dust on the bottom of the pool. It will even climb the walls and clean the sides of the pool as well. The only problem is it is light weight and it needs heavier weights to keep it down. The ones that come with it isn’t heavy enough. I had extra from an old one I order and used them . ... read more It will clean a pool really fast.

      Works for me
      I purchased several years ago. I have had to replace some hoses. This has worked great for me. Sometimes it needs direction for missed spots or getting under the ladder on my above ground pool. I did not find it that complicated to put together and have just left it that way for storage. Best by for the money for pool cleaner.

      Easy to put together and easy to operate.
      I have been using the Mamba Automatic Pool Vacuum for a few years. The one shown in the photo had no protection for the two plastic pipes that resulted in damage to one plastic pipe which affected the operation detrimentally. I had to tape over the cracked pipe damaged when the vacuum tried to pass the built in steps in the lower end of our pool.The latest model, the one I recently bought, has another protective plastic guard that covers the pipe preventing damage. Inexpensive/Good!
