    Nice Upgrade. Works Well!

    I have had this unit for 2 weeks after replacing an original Aquabot unit that I had for 12 years. The Tigershark unit operates very different from the Aquabot unit, making frequent turns and changes in direction. This unit also moves a lot faster than the Aquabot and is a lot easier to clean. I have only used it in "Full Clean" mode and it does an adequate job (sometimes I have to run it twice, but so what). Unit climbs the walls to the waterline and doesn't get stuck on either of my 2 main drains, which seemed to be where my Aquabot lived. I like that the unit shuts off after the estimated cleaning period. Cleaning the filters, once you get the hang of it, is much easier than the Aquabot bag and putting the botton unit back in is a snap. The Aquabot unit that I had worked well, although I had to replace parts every 3-4 years. The Tigershark seems like the next technological upgrade to that pool cleaner, and costs only $100-$200 more than the Aquabot replacement. If I... 5/5 T.

    Not the machine I expected

    The Tigershark QC was highly recommended by a friend who has had good experiences. Thus far, two weeks or so after opening the box and getting the Tigershark into the pool, I am disappointed. I have a full size pool, 18 x 38 as I recall (I haven't measured it in years) with a deep end. This machine will not clean your entire pool, not in 1 three hour cycle, or in 3 three hour cycles. It will get to 2/3, maybe 3/4 of the pool in that time. It will only occasionally climb a wall, so you will have to brush the sides, not a big job, but a job I did not expect to have. It will run right over and not pick up full size leaves ( there were only a handful in the entire pool - I was not expecting anything extraordinary) I have not had anything on the Tigershark break yet, but the bottom latch and filter cartridge, which must be handled often in order to clean the filters, feel flimsy. The plastic is thin, and feels brittle. It would be easy to break either part. This is not an inexpensive... 3/5 Harold - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Worth the high price

    I purchased this item over two months ago after agonizing for months whether I should spend such an extraordinary sum for a vacuum. I read hundreds of reviews for all sorts of pool vacs.My particulars: I have a modest-sized pool, around 19,000 gallons and all curves. I wanted something that would ingest acorns (they rain down from an oak tree during the fall and early winter). I also wanted a vacuum separate from the pool filtration system (acorns and mini-branches would clog my pool's filtration system), would get fine dirt that tends to settle in the deep end and clean the pool tile that collects tree debris.This vacuum has fulfilled every expectation. It has been worth every dollar and significantly improved the quality of my life from its ease of use and effectiveness. If you can maintain the other aspects of your pool, it will pay for the pool guy in under a year. Go ahead: drop your service and buy this thing.Performance particulars:... 5/5 D. M.

    I have 6 of these in my garage, Pool Professional Review

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:52 MinsFor the price there are a lot of better cleaners. you will get a good 1 1/2 to 2 years out of it before you start replacing parts. And there are a lot of parts. The feet go bad, the wings wear down but the most common is the Turbine and bearings (they sell a kit called the A-Frame/ Turbine Kit). This is the culprit if your cleaner just sits on the bottom, but moves if you lift it up.The good new is that most pool stores will rebuild it at no cost for labor, just parts (which they mark up of course).The main problem is that anything as large as a oak nut gets stuck in the bottom and the cleaner just stops. Pulled my share of dead lizards & mice out from the bottom too (not fun). A small pebble can stop this thing flat also. Sometimes it also will get stuck on the step area, it is supposed to spin its way out, but the gearbox that controls this wears out and is fickle at times.Like I said, my garage is full of these... 3/5 Mrdgvb1 "Dave" (California) - See all my reviews, January 31, 2012

    Great reliable pool cleaner

    0 5/5 Bubba Boy (Chino Hills, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I have personally owned and used this brand of cleaner for my 16,000 gallon pool since 1992. My last Hayward PoolVac Ultra lasted about 6 years before the internal bearings and overall condition became too worn to replace minor parts without spending hundreds on major parts. I recommend this pool cleaner over any other type because it is very efficient and yet requires few repairs and little maintenance. Overall it's a great value.The merchant shipped the item quickly and it arrived in perfect shape. I would gladly purchase products from this merchant again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 27, 2010

    Turned from good to bad too fast

    I bought the Hayward Pool Vac XL in March of 2011 from a local pool supply store - it was reasonably priced (well not really, but all of these little plastic toys seem to be way overpriced, this one was just the least overpriced) and came with a good recommendation from the manager of the shop, that it was an established piece of equipment that should work well for our pool. Out of the box, it did work really well. As we had just bought our house, the pool had not been maintained, so there was quite a bit of dirt and debris for the Pool Vac XL to clean up, which it did pretty well. Fast forward to less than a year later, and I regret my purchase. It feels like the Pool Vac XL won't go 5 minutes without getting stuck, it ignores a single, fairly large area of the pool bottom, and is constantly getting tangled around its own hose. I set it up as per the instructions, have replaced the little feet and other parts, and put a brand new cartridge in the pool pump. As much as this unit... 2/5 Kevin Lake (Orlando, FL) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2012

    Awesome!

    I've been looking for a pool cleaner ever since I decided to give up on my Hayward Vac. I guess this was a blessing in disguise. The Hayward Vac came with my pool and I didn't realize what a piece of junk it actually was until I installed the Kreepy Krauly Kruiser. The Hayward Vac would hang up everywhere, always went above the water line sucking in air, and constantly got stuck on the steps. When it did work properly it wasn't long before I had to replace pretty much the entire bottom assembly. Talk about a product giving me headaches the Hayward Vac was it. I researched on line and the Kreepy Krauly name kept coming up as a solid choice for pool cleaning. Plus, they have been around for ever so it was worth a shot. I clicked on Amazon, searched for the Kruiser, added it to my cart and it was at my house in 2 days. Thanks Amazon! The installation was super easy and the Kruiser was in my pool rockin' and a rollin' within 15 minutes.

This review is from: Pentair K60430 Kreepy Krauly Kruiser Automatic Inground Pool Cleaner (Lawn & Patio) May work for some pools but not my irregular shaped tile pool. I followed the instructions to a tee but it would always get stuck in a couple of innocuous areas. Also seemed to push debris (even small stuff) out of the way instead of sucking it up. Not a good item. Amazon honored the return with no real problem.

    I have owned two much more expensive Aquabot robots over the past 8 years.The more expensive models (double the price of this unit) are much more complex, and therefore they require maintenance every year. Things like changing belts, changing brushes, etc. After 3 to 4 seasons, something "big" goes wrong and the unit is no longer worth fixing as it would cost hundreds of dollars.So when my expensive aquabot died a week ago, I decided to "Keep it simple stupid" and buy this low cost model.

    I was looking for a low priced efficient auto pool cleaner to replace my ever-dying, undependable, expensive to repair Hayward Navigator. Reading the reviews of the GW9500 on Amazon, it seemed that only 1/3 of the reviewers were dissatisfied with the performance of the GW.I found it on Ebay for 289.00, w/free shipping and a 50.00 rebate from Pentair; so I took a 240.00 chance.Connected the hoses, dumped the GW9500 in the pool, then turned the pump on. It was that easy. I have a screen enclosed kidney shaped pool 30x16 with 6ft depth, gunite pool with no swim outs,three steps in the shallow end and a ladder in the deeper end. The pool is spotless, the GW9500 never gets stuck, evenly cleans, and it scours the walls like a Catfish. I leave it in the pool and it cleans with each cycle of the pool pump.

    Great for pools that get lots of leaves

    I purchased the Pentair Great White two months ago. I made my purchase after reading the reviews on Amazon for several pool cleaners. They were tremendously helpful in making the right choice. I am repaying what I owe by sharing what I've learned.We have a tough pool. I maintain it myself because pool guys take one look and quote an outrageous price. We live at the very northern end of the Los Angeles basin, nestled against the mountains that form the basin's northern border. It's a beautiful place to live, but several times a year the Santa Ana winds come, and during those times, the pool needs attention every day. Our property is ringed by eight huge pines that are beautiful and I would never dream of cutting down, but when the winds come, our pool fills up with pine needles first, then pine pellets a couple of weeks later.
