      This pool vac works pretty good for the price.
      I have been using this vac and its earlier models since i put in the pool. This is #4. If you do not use a service, you will have to take ca re of some maint. yourself. It will deteriorate due to the pool chemistry over time. If you have steps and cranies it can get stuck. This wears out the pads that propel the vac. I recommend using the bumper. You will have to do a little fitting with a file to get it to fit flat to the bottom and not block the pods. Be carefull to not overtighten the screws ... read more as they can strip. The other parts can be replaced as needed.

      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.

      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.

      Great in the beginning!
      We've had our above ground pool about 6 years and have gone through 3 Polaris 65. We have mild winters so left it connected the first 2 years with no problems. 3rd year, hard winter so disconnected it ,next summer it made funny noises and went in circles and kept turning over. Once it almost drained the pool! Took it to our local pool store, they charged $75 to "Replace the inner workings ". Still had problems. Read where to stretch the hose in sunshine, did that, no help. Long story short, on ... read more 3rd one, now having same issues. Please tell me another pool cleaner to buy.

      I LOVE this product
      I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I have my pool filter attached to a timer so it goes on and off automatically; and I keep the Polaris 65 hooked up unless we are using the pool. As a result I haven't had to vacum the pool since I bought this product. The pool is now essentially self maintaining and always sparkling clean. In fact, it's cleaner than when I vacumed the pool myself. When first installed the Polaris would flip over (because the presure from the filter return was too strong), but once I reduced ... read more the water pressure with the regulator valve that comes with the Polaris, it slowed down and has worked perfectly ever since.

      Great Purchase and Customer Service
      This pool cleaner is very easy to put together and use. It is not so heavy that you struggle getting it in and out of the pool like some of the bigger pool cleaners. This cleaner is not suitable for soft sided pools, however customer service is very accomodating and helpful with any concerns you might have.

      Manual is worthless, product rocks
      The manual has tiny pics, tiny print, and is next to impossible to read. Wife and I put it together by taking pics of the manual and zooming. 2 extra parts, Put it together expecting failure, but, this thing, this thing rocks. WOW, a little disappointed that the hose kept getting tangled, but we'll try something different next time we use it. I WOULD suggest this to anyone tired of standing there and going back and forth. Works like a charm.

      Works great in smaller above ground pool!
      I like this pool cleaner, it does a good job. This is the first automatic cleaner that keeps moving around the pool (above ground, 18’ round). I keep my eye on it as one time it scooted under the ladder. It was easy to clear from the ladder and it hasn’t done that again. This was a good purchase.

      Great cleaner - great price.
      After years of consistent use, I replaced my Ranger with The Splasher. I've only had it a few months now, but am truly pleased with its performance. I purchased mainly because of the price and so far it's been a great deal. I'll update this review at a later date.

      Fantastic Time Saver
      This little Aqua Critter, we call Eunice, has given me back my life! It cleans our 24’ X 12’ pool so all I have to do is scoop out the leaves. Before Eunice I had to spend at least an hour vacuuming each night after work. It took me a while to actually figure out how to hook Eunice up to the pool. YouTube showed me how to hook Eunice up to my Intex pool. I took the hose that runs from the filter to the pump and, after closing the valve to the pool, I jammed Eunice’s hose tightly into the hose ... read more going into the pump and turn it to filter. Viola! It worked! Eunice runs about 3 – 4 hours a night. Occasionally she gets stuck by the pool ladder so I just slide her out of the way and off she goes! I would highly recommend this little Aqua Critter.

      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.

      Great product
      I was skeptical about this pool cleaner at first, but once it was hooked up, it t did a wonderful job cleaning my pool. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. I did have to buy an extension hose for my 18 x 33 oval pool.

      Pool cleaning made easy!
      Second one. Liked it so much I bought another one. The first lasted three years, the cleaner still works but the hose at the cleaner end wore out. I run my pool for 4 hours daily and keep the cleaner hooked up so it cleans daily. The negative reviews are bogus, it’s not a vacuum it’s a cleaner, you need to hook it up to the return outlet not the suction as the instructions say. You will be pleasantly surprised to see what a $70.00 cleaner can do!!!

      LOVE THIS CLEANER !!!!
      This is year 2 using this cleaner! It works off the return. I have a 20 ft with a sand filter system. I have bought several automatic cleaners and this the only one that works and has kept working! I don't have to fight with air in the lines either :) It does move debris around (as it changes water pressure to move another direction) & doesn't always pick everything up on the first pass - but give it a chance! Let it run while you go do something else and come back and it will be clean! My only ... read more negative is that when I remove it from the pool I need someone able to turn off the filter at the same time - so debris does not go back into the pool and the water doesn't flood my porch lol. But all of the time saved to have a clean pool and positives of this cleaner far outweigh this!

      Does a great job
      We started using it 6 weeks ago and on second set of wheels. They are plastic wheels with plastic screws and they just strip. The turtle does do an awesome job cleaning just some manufacturing flaws. We did get new wheels from company no questions asked. They were great to work with.

      You get what you pay for
      It gets the job done but does get stuck so you have to keep checking on it.

      Turtleman is awesome!
      I bought this to get the leaves and sediment on the bottom of the pool that was clogging our Diver Dave up. It was a great purchase and does as expected.

      Nice
      Great cleaner, works well, not too expensive. This cleaner has done a wonderful job of helping keep my pool clean. I have a gunite pool and a sand filteration system, this makes for a bit of extra dirt/dust on the pool floor. The filter trap isn't huge, but it does a good job of keeping all of the unwanted material in. It's easy to clean out with a garden hose, and the automatic shut off makes for easy maintenance. Great product.

      WOW...Should of bought years ago !!!!!
      I bought this a Month ago, opened the pool up, having holes from squires on it, and it was GREEN !! I mean Kermit the frog home GREEN....opened the box, put the mesh filter bags on, threw it in, plugged it in, set it for large pool and BAM !!! it started working...after a few times filling the mesh bags I switched to the fine filter bags and soon the pool was back to swim condition. I wish I had seen this before !!! I had the POLARIS 65 before for years buying 3 over the years not cleaning well ... read more and worst of all having the unit flip over many times (usually when i'm not home) and EMPTY MY POOL FOR ME !!!! What a great device !! REVIEW15
