    Suction Cleaners

      WORKS LIKE A CHARM FOR AQUABOT
      if you have an AQUABOT, this cover is a must....the aquabot glides right over the top, with no more getting stuck on the drain...might not work well with other cleaners, but for AQUABOT owners, it's a must!!!!

      Must Have for Polaris
      This product is great and allowing me to enjoy the pool even more. Prior to purchasing the product, I would come home and see the Polaris sweeper stuck on the drain and the bottom of the pool still litered with debris. Now, I don't have to monitor the Polaris and when I come home from work, I can jump into the pool....no pausing to manually sweep the pool anymore.

      Essential for an Automatic Cleaner
      I got an AquaVac Tiger Shark and didn't understand why it didn't get the whole pool clean overnight. I ran it during the day once and saw that it got caught on top of the main drain and just sat there. After I purchased and installed the Unicover, it hasn't gotten stuck again and now my pool is in great shape. Excellent purchase, and essential for an automatic cleaner.

      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.

      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.

      good purchase for the money
      i bought this whale to clean the pool because with the hand vacuum you have to get into the pool and all the dirt is stirred up so you cant see where it needs to be cleaned. It works well but its kinda slow we leave it in the pool over night and the pool is clean in the morning as long as you take the ladder out. Price is good for the investment i have had no problems with it.

      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.

      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!

      a must have
      This definelty is awesome time saver to clean pool. This is my 3rd one. First one lasted 5-6 years. Second one only lasted three. Needed new rubber feet and plastic wheel was lost; decided to buy new instead of wasting $ on replacement parts. I first up-graded to Shark; returned it and got this. Much better product.

      Aqua Critter review
      one of the best pool cleaners I've used in above ground pools.... the only problem is it takes longer when cleaning a round pool, and you have to move it a couple times to make sure it cleans the entire pool.... but, moving it maybe 2 times isn't that big of a deal, it'll eventually clean the entire pool, it's just that it has a harder time with rounded pools. so, 4 stars cause of the rounded pool issue.

      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.

      Works great
      Bought this to clean our above ground pool and I am so glad I did. Whitin an hour my 27' foot pool is clean. No more manual cleaning. If you have an above ground pool I highly recommend this product.

      Great looking and worth the price
      I bought this instead of a higher end model just for the reason my 9 year old daughter loved the penguin. After I received it , assembled it , it worked awesome. The cost for this Hayward cleaner keeps up with the higher end model. Due to a local storm it clogged once with a large twig (branch). I would definitely suggest this product and company to friends and family for there fast and secure service.

      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 :)

      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.

      I have not opened my pool yet this year but I am confident my new pool vac will work fine. It will be the 3rd or 4th one I have had over the years.

      A very clever, easy-to-use design
      My husband and I have been wanting an automatic pool cleaner for years, but couldn't afford the high cost of the 'Polaris" and similar electric-powered cleaners. Allan's brother told us about this one and we ordered it right away. It's absolutely great! Rather than having an electric motor to worry about, this unit plugs right into the skimmer like a manual vacuum and is hydraulically powered by the water moving through. It also has relatively few moving parts and all are fairly easily ... read more accessible. For our 20' x 40' pool, it takes move like 3.5 to 4 hours to complete a cleaning job, but is worth the wait.There's a single door in the back of the unit that one opens to clean out fhe innards - takes only seconds. I wish, though, that the door had a locking mechanism that did not require a screwdriver (Phillips at that), because we don't normally keep a toolkit in the pool area -- but this is a very minor complaint about an otherwise excellent product.

      GREAT SUCCESS
      I AM A NEW POOL OWNER AND HAVE STRUGGLED KEEPING THE POOL CLEAN BY HAND. SO, I RESEARCHED AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANERS AND SPOKE TO FRIENDS WHO ARE POOL OWNERS. MOST OF THEM REFERRED ME TO POLARIS BUT I REALLY HAD A PROBLEM SPEND CLOSE TO A THOUSAND DOLLARS. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE KREEPY KRAULY AND ITS PERFORMANCE!!! I CAN IMAGINE OTHER POOL CLEANERS FOR 3 TIMES THE PRICE DOING ANY BETTER OF A JOB.

      The ONLY pool vac I'll ever buy
      When I bought my home with an existing pool 20 years ago, it came with a Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. After more than 15 years of use, the Kreepy needed to be replaced. I fought with hubby to purchase a new Kreepy, but his heart was set on a robotic cleaner that cost more than twice what a Kreepy cost. I was never happy with the robotic cleaner's performance - it never cleaned as well as my Kreepy. After the robotic's third breakdown in 3 years, I finally convinced hubby to go back to Kreepy ... read more Krauly. We are both tickled at how well this cleaner operates...and the rebate made the deal sweeter!

      Should have bought this years ago.
      Recently purchased this for the pool I have had for 19 years without an automatic pool cleaner. This cleaner was easy to assemble, easy to install, and does a great job of cleaning the bottom and sides of my pool. I now regret spending to much time and effort in the past manually vacuuming the pool. Since it has minimal moving parts, has excellent dependability reviews, and replacement parts for many year models are easily available, I expect to have this cleaner for a long time.

      Easy to use
      Works well with my shark automatic Pool cleaner. My above groundouts is around a lot of trees this came in real handy!,

      Impressive
      I've been using the cyclonic automatic cleaner with my automatic vacuum for a few weeks now. It really does keep the debris out of the filter basket.

      What I Needed
      Great product! I only got to use it about 2 times before I had to close the pool, but worked exactly as needed.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Suction Pool Cleaners

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Suction Cleaner Automatic Pool Vacuums

    Shop from the most popular suction pool cleaners like the AquaNaut (The Pool Cleaner)Hayward Aqua CritterKreepy Krauly Sand Shark, and the Zodiac MX6 cleaner. Energy efficient suction pool cleaners use the power of your pool pump to vacuum debris and particles into your pool’s filter, and can be directed into specific patterns for customized cleaning.


    Benefits of Suction Pool Cleaners

     1. Lowest cost pool cleaners, starting at less than $100.
     2. Fewer moving parts and wearable parts, for less maintenance and repairs.
     3. No additional cost to operate, runs when your pool filter pump is running.
     4. Available Skim Vac Plates trap leaf debris in the skimmer basket.
     5. Available In-line Leaf Canisters handle large and heavy leaf debris. 

    How Suction Cleaners Work: Suction pool cleaners connect to your pool skimmer or dedicated vacuum line, and are powered by the suction of water from your pool pump. With models designed to clean in-ground and above ground pools, suction cleaners move about the pool to vacuum walls and floor, bringing the dirt and debris into the pump basket and pool filter for removal.

    Suction Cleaner Installation: Suction cleaners assemble in minutes without tools. Simply join the 4' hose sections together to reach the furthest part of the pool. Connect one end of the hose to the cleaner head, and the other into your skimmer or vacuum line. Adjust pump suction valves if needed to pull more water from the cleaner, and start moving the cleaner. A 1 hp pump or greater is recommended to provide enough suction power.

    If you have any questions about In The Swim's suction pool cleaners, please contact our pool experts via phone or email, for fast, professional service. Most of our suction cleaners are available with super-fast 1-day shipping and processing.
