Great price for what you get. Has a few issues but works fairly good.

For the price you can't beat it. Needs better instructions for adjustment. I would not suggest using the wall fitting that comes with it if you are replacing a Polaris. Use the Polaris fitting and attach the hose to it. This gives you the option to use restrictor plates and the overall wall fitting is better. The hose is almost reason enough to buy this unit. It is an excellent hose and contains all the floats and swivels you need. That is worth at least 1/2 of the cost of this unit in itself. The first drawback though does start with the hose and is not limited to this hose as I have had some Polaris hoses act the same way when new. When you try to attach the hose to the top of the unit you might find it near impossible to actually cut a thread into the hose so until the hose loses it's sheen due to chemicals you will likely need to leave it on there buy force of friction. Maybe a good wire tie. That leads me to the 2nd issue. The tail. This comes with a nice perfectly good tail and an apparently week clip. The clip disappeared never to be seen again within a week. Had to wire tie it on. Unit also seems to be overly hungry for it's own tail. Have had to rescue the tail from throat and bag a couple of times. Probably means they used a hose that is too supple for a tail. Not sure how to fix that other than maybe replacing it with an actual Polaris tail. Don't worry about the Polaris backup. Drain it and put it away. This unit has backup built in. Sometimes spends too much time in backup mode.
Performance is a bit subpar compared to a Polaris 180 in terms of wall climbing. My unit won't come all the way up a wall. I guess the good side of that though is it's not spraying everyone randomly. I don't like the double wall bag as it's hard to empty. Only a moderate improvement on a 180 bag in catch rate. Still prefer panty hose over any Polaris bag.
Overall I do recommend it just be aware of it's quirks.

Light weight but looks effective....cant tell yet

I just recently got the product installed in the pool.. So far it is not cleaning the pool very well. I will let you know later if I have given it enough time or if there is a problem. My pool man won't be back until next week and he will be able to tell me why is hasn't cleaned all the pool yet.Read full review...

Excellent Cleaner

In looking for an inexpensive cleaner with good quality...we found it! This cleaner is just as good as any name brand at a lesser cost. It climbs to the very top of the water on the walls. Highly recommend!Read full review...

Replaced a Polaris

I could only find 2 reviews for this 1 good and 1 bad, The bad review had a problem stating this would not go into the shallow end, I did have a problem at first but after adjusting the back nozzle it does just fine. This is a great value considering the price of the Polaris which I could never understand why the cost so much, They are just molded plastic. Shipping was great, The only problem I did have was with the hose, Even after laying out in the sun for 2 days I could not get the coil out of it and the sweep kept getting tangled in it when it backed up, Solved it by just using my old hose.Read full review...

Great value

After 1 season of use, I can say this is a great value. Itworks almost as well as the Polaris but won't climb walls as well. The weak point as for as I am concerned is the bag which is poorly designed, difficult to empty and no replacement or parts are offered. Can't beat the price!Read full review...

Good value

Any pool owner knows that anything under $40.00 is not much money. This is as good a quality pool cleaning equipment as any. I will order another one just to have around. Highly recommended.

Awesome product for the money.

The cleaner came intact in sealed box. Very minimal assembly; just have to straigthen the hose cuts for the tail and main hose. The wall quick diaconnect fitted easily on the existing pool wall pipe. All I had to do was adjuat the tail knob and cleaned my pool in less than 4 hours. Awesome product for the money. The hoses seem to be a little stiffed but hope get more plyable with time in the water.Read full review...

Great Pool Cleaner!

So far so good. I would put it up against a Polaris and it is half the cost. I just wish I new about replacement bags for the product.

Does not work

The hose is so stiff that all it does is tangle into a corkscrewed mess, it has stopped picking up debris in the pool. Save your money and put it towards a better system. My 9 year old Polaris still works better than this one did brand new. I would avoid it. I took a chance and it wasn't worth it.Read full review...
