    Above-Ground Cleaners

    1. 9 months ago
      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.

      Good Buy
      We have had the vacuum for about a month and so far everything is good. It was easy to assemble and easy to hookup to my pool. I have only 2 problems and that it seems like it takes the same path. I will adjust my return to move the current and it works great. It also will not maneuver around my stairs and gets stuck. Again I will just move the return and it will not go by them. It took some time for me to adjust to what it could and couldn't do. For the price I am VERY please with this.

      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.

      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.

      wonderful automatic cleaner
      The Aqua Bug, has been the best automatic pool cleaner I've owned! I tried 4 different models, with my above ground pool, & switched back to the reliable Aqua bug, because the others would either get hung up, or just not do as good of a job cleaning the whole pool (33x12' Doughboy). I've never had a problem with the bug, as with the others....maukajt

      Easy Peasy Sparkling Water
      This is the best purchase we have ever made for our pool. We had an automatic pool vac that came with our above ground pool, but it was such a hassle to start and keep going that we abandoned it ages ago. After years of wearing myself out cleaning the pool, we finally broke down and, based on the reviews here, bought this little gem. The price is good -- it was $70 less here than at our local major chain pool store. I just put the Aqua Critter in and a couple of hours later, the pool is ... read more sparkling. I don't even have to get in the pool to start it; it's easy to get going from the side. I ordered the two extra pieces of hose for our 27-foot pool, but the vac came before those, so the first time we tried it, it left a ring of dirt around the outer edge of the pool. With the extra pieces, it does better, although there is still one area that it doesn't seem to get to. That's easy to fix -- I just nudge the Aqua Critter over that area and it picks it right up. It is fun to watch too. I love this piece of equipment and only wish I had had it the last 20 years.

      Great pool cleaner!
      I purchased this cleaner two weeks ago and have used it three times. I was a little skeptical from the reviews about hose length. I have a 24 ft. round pool and it has plenty of hose. It gets it all. Pool was really dirty and the first time took longer. Now in about two hours it's done. Absolutely love love love it!

      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!

      Excellent Vacuum!
      We have a 20 foot by 4 foot deep round above ground pool. This is a great vacuum as it cleans the entire pool of large and small debris on the floor of the pool. Our pump is a 1500 hog so we had to take out one section of the hose to give the vacuum more power as it was stopping for no known reason. It works great now, keeps the pool clean and it is simple to clean the vacuum. This is a terrific buy for the money!

      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 for Above-ground pool
      With my 18ft round 52in. deep pool, I had to upgrade from 1000 gph pump with Type A/C filter to a 1500 gph pump with larger Type B filter. Better filtration and better performance with Wanda. Easy to install, only 5 minutes to connect hoses to skimmer. Definitely need leaf catcher accessory, sold separately. Highly recommend this cleaner.

      I Love Wanda
      I am so glad that I purchased Wanda. I had her up and running in just a couple of minutes. She does a great job of cleaning the entire bottom of our 18" above ground pool. She does not ever tip over, and I leave her in the pool over night and in the morning my pool is sparkling clean. I would highly recommend this product.

      In-line Leaf Filter works well
      I bought this to put in-line on my water bug pool bottom cleaner. Easy to put in service. Relatively easy to empty, but you will get wet doing so. With pine trees in the area, I always seem to collect needles and this stops most of them from getting to my pump. The only drawback is that the lid can be very hard to pull open. I found that useing some petroleum jelly on the screws and gasket make getting it open much easier.

      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.

      Works great
      It's a bit heavy, so depending upon your cleaner, you may also need a very short piece of hose to keep it close to the pool wall (to keep the hose from tangling)
    1. 3 years ago
      This cleaner is working great for my pool. My pool is surrounded by trees, always dropping things into the pool, so I didn't want a vacuum system that goes through my filter. This has been working great since I got it.

      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

      Great Purchase--Like having a MAID for my pool!
      I bought the pool Rover a month ago, and have used it weekly since to keep the pool sparkling clean! It is so nice to be able to do other chores, and have the pool ready for a quick splash to cool off. This thing is WAY more helpful than my kids! We have an octogon pool, with a depth running from 3 feet to 8 feet deep and it does a great job---even the walls, which is still pretty amazing for me to watch! I realize that I am easily entertained, but the first time out of the box, both my daughter ... read more and I sat beside the pool with a cold drink and just watched the Rover manuver and clean!

      Wow
      This little thing is amazing. When I got it out of the box I instantly thought there is no way this is going to work it's just too simple.... Guess what it works! One recommendation don't try to use it to clean a dirty pool because it will kill your filter because it will clog it in half a day.... (Yes it works that well).... It's not made to clean a super dirty pool it's just made to clean and maintain a pool that hasn't been neglected. Drop it in a pool that has been maintained and it will ... read more keep it that way! One tip make sure you get the air out of the hose and you are good to go. This is a purchase you will never regret! Amazing!!!!!!!!

      Best Cleaner I've Had
      First I would like to thank the other reviewers for their input - it helped me with my decision. This is my 3rd cleaner for an 18x33 pool and the first one to actually clean the whole pool. It doesn't tangle or get stuck very often and cleans the pool in 2-3 hrs. It won't pick up the big leaves but will get the small ones as well as bugs and silt very well. It works well on the irregular bottom of my pool. I would highly recommend this cleaner. Very Satisfied !!!

      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

      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.

      This is our second turtle. The first one lasted 8 years and was used every day. Great value for the price.

      Fantastic aid for pool enjoyment!
      We've had Tyler (the turtle) since we put the pool in over 10 years ago. He really takes a lot of trouble out of pool care. He even picked up a nail that I dropped in the pool while taking the cover off. With him and our Frog clorinating system, my whole pool care regiment takes under an hour each month. And I have crystal clear water with all the chemicals in balance.
