Product Description

OUR #1 BEST SELLING ABOVE-GROUND POOL CLEANER NOW AVAILABLE IN THREE UNIQUE DESIGNS
The Hayward Aqua Critter Above Ground Pool Cleaner is a great addition to your residential above ground pool. It has the ability to efficiently clean your pool floor. The Hayward Aqua Critters are built for maximum water circulation and filtration. In fact, this little guy works right alongside your pool pump and filters to keep everything clean and healthy as it should be. Equipped with a SmartDrive® program-The Hayward Aqua Critter knows exactly where it needs to go to retrieve as much dirt and grime as possible. All you need to do is set the cleaning cycle and then let the cleaner run its course. In order to keep your pool as clean as possible, it sucks up the water through the cleaner/hose then the debris becomes trapped in a separate skimmer basket.. All you have to do is connect it to your skimmer, and then let it use the same power source as your filtration system and watch the cleaning begin!

Note: requires a 1 HP pump.

For Technical support on this item please contact Hayward 1-800-HAYWARD www.haywardpools.com.

  • Hayward Aqua Critter Troubleshooting:
  • Slow/no forward movement...

    Check for lack of/improper water flow through cleaner. If this appears to be the cause Clean the In-Line Leaf Canister, Hair and Lint Pot and Filter System. Check for partial blockage of cleaner throat, in which case clear blockage. Check for worn shoes or worn wings, and replace if necessary.
  • Cleaners movement is fast and erratic...

    If the cleaners movement is fast and erratic remove V512A, and turn off filter and turn cleaner upside down. Insert a small screwdriver in the notch at the rear of the opening. Using a prying motion, remove the throat.
  • Cleaner sticks at ladder or wall...

    If the cleaner appears to be stuck or "hung up" at the wall, ladder, or other obstruction, or anywhere else in the pool, and does not return to normal operation within a minute or so, turn the filter system OFF. Remove the cleaner from your pool. Check for blockages or any other obvious problems. Check the Bumper Ring for free rotation. Check filter system for water flow and re-install the cleaner. If the cleaner is getting stuck, contact your Hayward dealer or Hayward at 1-800-277-1477.

    Under no conditions should the cleaner remain in the pool connected to the filter system if the problem of getting stuck or "hung up" is not corrected.

  • WANDA THE WHALE Review by

    I read nothing but great reviews about the Aqua Critters so I decided to purchase, " Wanda the Whale" and see for myself. I viewed the D.V.D. & had the device up & running in about 10min. The device came fully assembled & all I had to do was attach the hoses & then attach the hose to the skimmer. The device immediately activated and when I returned several hours later the pool was completely cleaned. The device runs silently and moves ever so gently over the bottom of the pool. THROW AWAY THAT OLD CLUMSY VACUUM DEVICE. I would definitely recommend this device & glad I purchased an Aqua Critter.

    I love the critter cleaner. I went a couple of years trying to clean the pool myself but found it was a useless battle. So, I gave the critter a try and am pleased with the results. Works great for a semi-dirty pool but don't expect miracles with a real dirty pool cause the the leaf-catcher is a joke if you have more than 10 leaves to pick-up. Probably going to have to purchase a leaf-net this year because the willow tree on the other side of the fence is not pool friendly!

    I got the auqua bug with the leaf catcher, and the third time I used it the small extension hose that attaches to the leaf collector cracked, and then split entirely, rendering the leaf catcher unusable. The only other issue was that as I get acorns in my pool, the bug inlet isn't big enough to vacuum these, and it clogs up. Otherwise it's a great product, and can be used without the leaf catcher, that was just a really nice extra feature from Doheny's. Doheny's customer service however was wonderful in resolving the issue for me!
