    Aug 6, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Terrific job cleaning all areas of the pool
    Cons: Parts wear out quickly

    Summary: I’ll start out giving the bottom line at the top. I love this cleaner! I purchased it back during the 1st week of May (04) so now I've had it long enough to reliably rate it. As you might read in other reviews (such as an excellent review by ... read more

    Pros: sucks well.  easy to take out when you want for swimming.  works under solar covers.
    Cons: I recommend the leaf catcher, or too much stuff goes through to the filter

    Summary: I bought mine new but cheap on ebay, when I fired my last pool guy.  It's been three years, and the vac works great.  The work I still have to do is brushing the stairs and loveseats, brusing the tiles, and cleaning the big filter twice a ... read more

    Pros: Think the person at the poolstore is hot?... a good excuse to visit repeatedly!

    Cons: Just doesn't last

    Summary: Yep, as all the new owners point out, you will be delighted the first few weeks. Does a terriffic job fresh out of the box. But prepare to have your heart broken.I guess the pool stores must love this item, because you'll be visiting them ... read more

    Pros: Does its job effectively and saves me the anguish of repeated manually vacuuming.
    Cons: The flow control disk needs protection from damage.

    Summary: I bought my Hayward Ultra about 2 1/2 years ago because I was tired of cleaning the bottom of the pool. I mean you'd vacuum on Saturday and by Sunday the bottom of the pool was dirty again. So I went looking for an automatic cleaner. Some friends had a ... read more

    Pros: Does not develop memory, cleans entire bottom of pool, doesn't get stuck often
    Cons: Neglects stairs

    Summary: We're first time pool owners and the Hayward Pool Vac Ultra is our first cleaner. We purchased it after reading reviews here and speaking to the owners of a few different pool supply stores. We couldn't be happier with our purchase. The Pool Vac ... read more

  • Worst investment you'll ever make

    Sep 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very efficient getting the entire pool clean. Very fast and solid outside casing.
    Cons: Very expensive to maintain. Most parts wear out every 4 months, some 7 months.

    Summary: For the first year it works great because all the parts are new. But beware, as soon as the "warranty" period is nearly over, all parts will began to break. Don't believe the life of the product. The "1-year warranty" period is to make you believe the ... read more

  • Wish I had bought another Great White

    Jun 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: works well for a short period
    Cons: needs repair frequently

    Summary: I had a Great White before I bought this. It did not have a single problem for over 5 years. When it did, Pinch-a-Penny convinced my wife that this was a better cleaner. The guy told her that the cleaner did not have as many expensive parts as the other ... read more

    Pros: Ease of Use
    Cons: Small rocks/debris can clog it

    Summary: When my wife and I purchased our house 4 years ago, it came with a Hayward Navigator already in the pool. You could tell that the thing was neglected, yet it still worked great until this year. After considering the price of replacing several parts on ... read more

  • A must for any In-ground Pool.

    Sep 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans everywhere; bottom and sides. Powerful sucking action, very reliable
    Cons: None really depending on what kind of debris in your pool.

    Summary: Pools are inherently labor intensive. One of the biggest challenges is to keep the bottom of the pool clean, a free of debris, such as leaves and miscellaneous dirt. If you don't keep up with cleaning a pool on a daily basis, you're going to have not ... read more

  • Great for Pool Cleaning Business

    Aug 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fastest and most effective cleaner that I've ever seen Easy set up
    Cons: Small rocks can choke it Expensive to maintain

    Summary: I used this vac for both my pool at home and for my pool cleaning business on the side. The Hayward vac does the same job as a manual hand vac, except you don't have to spend hours pushing it around the pool. It cleans the pool by itself. It is even ... read more

    Pros: It really Works - Great !!
    Cons: Almost none

    Summary: After too many months of research and multiple discussions with pool owners, I was in "Information Overload" land as to which Pool Vacuum would work the best, and of course, I wanted it to provide the best value. I started over with a much more objective ... read more

    Cons: No cons.

    Summary: I'm an older woman and maintain my own pool. The Ultra Pool Vac by Hayward certainly makes my job simple! I have desert landscape and 1/4 inch granite in my backyard. The pool vac is on a system that turns on every night at 12 midnight and runs for ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, works off of existing pump
    Cons: Doesn't clean steps

    Summary: I first became aware of this cleaner through a close relative. I had no idea of the name of it, or how it worked. All I knew, was that he was happy and seems satisfied with the overall performance. I'm not sure on the price, for it was given as a gift. I ... read more

    Pros: Covers all of pool except steps, spa.
    Cons: Big leafs, marble-sized objects may stop it.

    Summary: I recently undertook a major pool remodel, leaving basically the hole as the only original part. The pool is a 20 x 40 gunite, kidney-shaped pool with a spa. My Dad, who originally built the pool, tried one of the early Arneson Pool Sweep products, ... read more

    Pros: Works good at first (not on steps)
    Cons: Does not last

    Summary: Parts do wear out quickly on the Hayward Vac, and after the warranty expires, it is costly to keep it running.  It was recommended by pool supply store, but would never recommend it myself.  It does not do a great job on walls or ... read more
