  • The Zodiac G4 Inground Pool Cleaner is the right SIGN for ME!

    Jun 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Top of the Line, acts hungry by the way it eats the pool debris!
    Cons: CONsistent, CONcrete action, CONvincingly Good. CONtinues to Perform.

    Summary: Our pool was an absolute disaster waiting to happen at the beginning of this hot season. It's an old pool now and the built-in turbo jets died long ago. For years we've been struggling with a Baracuda Pool cleaner. It worked great for many years, but ... read more

    Pros: If you can get it to move around it really cleans well.
    Cons: Stays in the same spot for hours, almost worthless.

    Summary: This is for the Baracuda Quattro X7. It sucks up dirt like crazy but it heads for the steps and stays in the same spot for hours. Sometimes it's on one of the side walls but usually it's the steps. The only way I can get it to clean the ... read more

    Pros: Best job on cleaning side of pools. Only one breakable part. Easy to maintain.
    Cons: Pricey. Both the new product and the replacement parts are pricey.

    Summary: We bought a house in Florida two years ago which had a 12k gallon pool and a baracuda Zodiac G4 cleaner already installed. I have no idea how old this baracuda is, but it was already fading when I moved in...so I would have guess it was several years old ... read more

    Pros: None known
    Cons: complicated, sluggish, noisy in the 10 minutes that it works before stopping.

    Summary: I purchased the baracuda G4 thinking it was the best pool cleaner you could buy after checking out all the postive reviews. It cleaned ok for a few weeks and then would stall and hang around doing nothing. I was told I had to tilt the pool spouts down. I ... read more

  • I LIVE IN FLORIDA AND I CAUGHT A BARACUDA

    Sep 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gets the pool really clean. No more back-breaking long vacuum handle.
    Cons: takes a bit longer than I'd like but worth the wait.

    Summary: What a thrill! A 4-1/2 foot sleep, vicious-looking baracuda - - but what fun reeling him him! But, that's not the only Baracuda I caught. You would think that having a “caged-in” pool would keep leaves, bugs and all other kinds of ... read more

    Pros: It has minimal parts that can not break.
    Cons: Don't waste your money, I would go with something else like a hayward pool cleaner.

    Summary: I purchased the Baracuda G4 and it never cleaned the entire pool. I changed the hoses around and the jets, but it still went just along the edge of the pool. I could see how it is a good cleaner becasue it has minimal parts that can not break, but after ... read more

    Pros: Low maintenance
    Cons: Didn't clean my pool very well at all.

    Pros: It does a fabulous job vacuuming the 4 inch wide swath right beneath the suction.
    Cons: Trying to get a true random movement around the pool is next to impossible.

    Summary: While installation was simple, adjusting the return water jets in the pool to eliminate patterning was a colossal pain in the butt! Mine still does not move in a true random pattern. Also, the unit required me to shut off the second skimmer to get the ... read more
