Tiger Shark XL

Have used twice. Better clean 2nd time. But you still can’t beat cleaning yourself with pool vacuum, which I did for 3rd clean. A bit fussy to clean filters after vacuuming. I’m still happy with machine as it will save a lot of time. I usually spend around an hour cleaning pool by hand. Pool is 10 x 4 Show details

Only goes down deep end

Bought the Tiger Shark from Waterama in Brisbane as soon as I put it in it only goes down the deep end it is 2 week old and never made it to the shallow end.
They said it is the shape of my pool and not warranting it when it said cleans all shape and makes of pools just not mine?
Shocking and so unhappy. Show details

Excellent cleaner

The Tiger Shark QC (quick clean) is fantastic- cleans our pool beautifully- easy to use & clean. Picks up everything !! Leaves, dirt, - especially helpful after a windy day. Show details

I had it for 11 yr and bought a 2nd one

I had 6x3 pool and the 1st tigershark lasted for 11 yrs. It still works vacuuming but just won't move. It works bloody terrific for me so I bought a 2nd one. Show details

Spotless Pool

This is a great cleaner. Easy and simple to setup out of the box. I have previously used another cleaner and I thought my pool was clean. I could not believe how much small black silt it picked up on its first clean. If my pool was clean before it is now spotless. No regrets I love it. Show details

Breaks down and very expensive to repair

Cleans pool ok but didn't like shallow end. Broke down a lot over it's 6 year life and became uneconomic to repair. Cable twisted and power unit stopped working. One wheel broke and track had to be replaced twice Show details

Could be more effective

Actually works ok. After some 5 minutes it sinks down to the ground but immediately spends a lot of time climbing the walls. Wish it would just clean the bottom more often. After having read the other reviews, I'm lucky that it still works...
Next pool cleaner: no Tiger Shark again! Show details

I have tried 4 different Hayward units and they just don't work

I have spent two years and have had the rep out to personally look at what was going on. Have swapped it out 3 times to try other Hayward cleaners and while the Tiger Shark was the best they had I have decided to replace it has it only seems to want to clean the deep end of the pool and never comes up to the shallow end. Under powered and can barley climb the walls with a fresh filter, after 5 minutes stops climbing the walls. Show details

Broke 2 months after warranty expired

I was recommended the Hayward Tiger Shark QC 5 micron by The Pool and Spa Warehouse . Disgusted in the customer service from the Pool and Spa Warehouse they told me if I lived in Sydney they can help me but because I live in Melbourne they can’t help me. I wish they had of told me this when I purchased the Shark for $1700 and they delivered it to Melbourne. They also told me Hayward were hopeless so no point going to them.!! Stay clear of the Tiger Shark and the Pool and Spa Warehouse Show details

Where did the cylinder styrofoam piece come from in the tiger shark qc and what is it’s purpose

Klim

My first thought was it is used to secure the motor unit during transport. I removed it. It doesn't affect the operation as it ran good for 11+ years before I bought a 2nd one a year ago.

I recently opened up my pool and after vacuuming the heavy debris from the pool bottom I set my 1 year old Tiger Shark QC to work, the unit did not submerge to the pool bottom, it has cleaned the side walls but has yet to touch the bottom of the pool following a 3hr session, has anyone had this issue?
