The included 32-foot hose will allow the cleaner to reach every corner of your above ground pool. And when the Critter is done, there is no messy debris bag to empty, just a handy skimmer basket.

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.

    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.
