Worth buying

published

So after looking on the internet for weeks I decided to bite the bullet and purchase this item. And I’m so glad I did. It was easy as to set up and cleans the pool so well. My pool is fibreglass 8 x 4m and it is cleans it without hassle. It has only gotten stuck once and that was on the plug thing at the bottom of the pool but hasn’t been stuck since. It is quiet and you don’t here that “thud thud thud” like you do with other models. I don’t have any trees around my pool but my neighbours palm tree is on the other side of the fence constantly dropping crap in the pool and the mantra picks it up easily. Would highly recommend.

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse for A$375.00.

It Works!

published

My zodiac g2 wore off after 10 years so i wanted to try something different.
Bought two wheeled cleaner but it wouldn't go to shallow end even with tiled tyres.
Decided to not stuff around and went for Manta / G3 and it just works.

Keep it simple

published

Tried a turbine cleaner for the second time, which was a waste of money again. So went back to a Baracuda. My previous one lasted several years and only replaced due to salt corrosion from been in the pool all the time. Replacement parts like skirt, diaphragm, hose lengths, are relatively expensive, but they are easily replaced and last for reasonable time. Does the walls, works under pool cover, picks up most large debris, fraction of the cost of robotic cleaners, and just simply works, so will stick with it, and recommend.

So far loving it !!! Purchased Sept 2019

published

So far it appears to be going up the walls which is better than my previous Brand (lasted 3 years 1/2 the price), it's doing a great job at suctioning. This was double the price however it has a 3-year warranty, the problem I am having is you have to register your 'Warranty' on their website & there is nowhere that says... 'Product Registration'. So i tried to send an email through the Website contact section & it constantly says 'failed to send'. I've tried 5 times now so how do you register your purchase for warranty if your website doesn't offer the Registration ????

Excellent Pool Vac

published

We have mostly palms around the pool and the strands fall in dried up and fresh. We have a few smaller leaves that come from the neighbouring tree and small seeds etc. took a few months to finally buy an automatic cleaner as cleaning the pool manually twice a week became tedious. I was so surprised how well this cleans the pool. I did not expect it to be as good as it is. So simple to install and the pool is always very clean (we have had some really windy days). I really recommend this cleaner (our pool is 11x4) bought this cleaner and 3 additional pipes. I never leave reviews but knowing how difficult this decision to purchase was and how happy I am I thought I would go online and leave this review.

Very Simple And Performs Well

published

I purchased this after I tried the Barracuda Tracker Robotic cleaner. Due to some fairly intense internal steps and seating in my pool the Robotic unit had some difficulty, I have mentioned these issues in another review and I certainly don't blame the unit itself. Masters actually sell both these units so I returned the Robotic cleaner and tried this unit instead. I couldn't be happier, simple unit that works well and I am sure will give excellent service for years to come. Should also avoid some of the issues with the Robotic cleaners such as the tracks wearing out and requiring replacement along with other internal parts. So for $325.00 including hose's and everything I couldn't be happier. Just sometimes the simpler the better.

the baracuda manta seems to work well except for getting stuck in the corner of a rectangular pool by some steps that jut out from the rectangle

Will my existing, generic, hose fit the Barracuda hose?

real simple...... Nope !!!! They have a little locking system on each piece of hose or connection which means you cannot use anything generic.... it simply doesn't fit, you have to buy everything 'Baracuda'... I found out the hard way & have a pile of pool bits & pieces they are good for nothing now & have to go out & purchase it all again in 'Baracuda' brand just to vac my pool.

Does the manga do the steps also?

Nope, this one doesn't do ours & as we were using another brand earlier we found Baracuda had a totally different hose link connecting system so we were not able to use the other hose links we already own which are universal, nor could we plug the Baracuda hose into a normal pole to vacuum. They have made it that you can only buy their accessories & parts once you buy the Barracuda creepy crawly... & there stuff is not cheap.
