Interesting... What's the advantage over just using a regular pump powered attachment?

Separate filter system you can use and clean which should reduce the amount of time before you have to backwash the pump.

The filter on this is good at picking up larger debris like small broken up leaves or maybe sand but it struggles with dead algae because they are fine particles which slip through the sock filter. I recommend supplementing filtration with a shop towel wedged in with a pool sock. Dispose of the towel and rinse off the sock... Rinse and repeat. After it collects enough dead algae or debris the suction power is reduced so you need to clean the filter.

This is also why they have available additional disposable filters for purchase because the one included is basic.

Uhh..shows sold by In the swim on my order details. I've always had good results with them. Maybe I'm missing something that you've found though?
In the swim is a pretty large pool supply retailer. maybe not always the best prices but a good one on this product.

These are only good for smaller above ground pools and hot tubs FYI.

Actually bought something similar to this at Lowe's recently (got it under $100) but had to return it; power isn't strong enough and I had to do several passes before getting the dirt gone. Went ahead and bought a Hayward suction pool cleaner and it has been very efficient. Like mentioned in the other post I just have to backwash the cartridge filters more frequently.

This is the second one we've had. First lasted 3 years then gave out but worked well cleaning and in between vacuumings. Needless to say, purchase the extended warranty, it's a good investment.

I bought something similar years ago when I first got a pool. The power is only really good at Maybe some small dirt. This is not a replacement for the old hose to the filter you're probably trying to avoid

Not having to use your pump? Big Grin

This was my first reaction as well, but then I was thinking of use cases:
1. Your dedicated pool cleaner pump is not working, or not working well, or you've decided to give up on automated pool vacs (I'm almost at this point with mine)
2. You don't leave your automated vac in the pool all the time, and maybe you just want to do a quick touch up without getting everything out and turning on pump, etc.
3. Maybe some places your automated vac doesn't reach (swim outs, steps, etc). Definitely applies to me as well. This would be great for that. Right now, I try to sweep those areas into the vac zone, and it's almost a fool's errand.

Dang it. Talking myself into "needing" this is the last thing I wanted to do!

Looks like pricing is much higher than similar units in the market though (like double in some cases, if you consider "normal" price for this). I guess this reduced price is a sign of that. Wonder if it also performs twice as well.

Three years is not bad for pool equipment, IMO.

Wow, had used this long long ago, but moved on to an auto robot and never looked. Just like others said, if you have a small above ground pool, or just want to spot clean, it's fine. For me, it got clotted/filled up very fast, and then it lost suction, so I had to clean/empty it multiple times. The charge didn't last that long. The water would get into it. Plus, I had to operate it.
