keeps breaking

when its not falling apart it works well, but I have had 2 in 3 years (first was replaced under warranty} the second broke November 2023, very disappointed as they are not cheap and I have never had a problem with the old hammer head type Kreepy Krauly. Show details

Fantastic product

I was very sceptical about pool cleaners in general, but my Sprinta Plus is excellent. In the 20 plus years I have had the pool, the pool has never been cleaner. Thoroughly recommended product. Show details ·  1

Great floor cleaner, adjustment needed for wall climbing

Purchased based on Choice article. Cleans floor very well but walls are tricky as you need to pay attention to weight placement. The manual could be improved by adding diagram to placement of first weight, as the online video explains but could be better too. I've managed to get it to wall climb, though it's inconsistent and maybe due to a small buildup of invisible algae on the walls. I also purchased the custom plate auto-skim to remove pool supplied vacuum plate from cause of non-climbing.
Still early days but it will climb walls under optimal conditions but doesn't do steps & ledge/landing. Show details

Very good pool cleaner

3 month review:
Moved from the MX8 due to gum leaf jamming issues
The sprinta is a far superior cleaner , it picks up all debry
Pool is spotless as a result
Runs well on evo 6 star pump running medium
Recommend this over a robot if you have heavy leaf litter as it’s cleaning full time
Don’t have a view on longevity yet hence 4 stars. Show details

Perfect!

We found this little cleaner is a real goer whipping around our vinyl lined inground pool so quickly, covers all the pool bottom in just a few hours as we don't need the sides to be done.Very gentle on the liner to!
Have had it 5 months. Show details ·  1

Best Auto pool Vac we have had!

The Sprinta plus or as the kids call it. SPEEDY is brilliant. We have a 10 x 4m in-ground pool. Other cleaners have all gotten stuck in the corners and needed babysitting to do a good job. Not Speedy, I have had it 2 days and my pool is the cleanest it has been. Doesn't get stuck, does the sides, does the deep end corners and in probably half the time of other cleaners. Show details

Creepy crauly sprinta

Brilliant unit. My husband spends much less time scooping the pool now as this little unit works super well. The water is much cleaner and we are very pleased with our purchase. Show details

Doesn't clean walls as specified on suppliers website

Seems to be a good machine. However, I required a wall cleaner, this does not climb the walls, Clark rubber website states "Fully integrated float for balance on walls & complete pool coverage." As well as " Floor and wall coverage"
Very disappointed in the false advertisement and misleading information Show details

Good, but breaks after a couple of years

When it works it is great. Our pool has problematic corners and it is the only one that does not get stuck. However, I am about to purchase my third one as the previous two lasted only about two years each. The problem is that the mechanism that keeps the ball-bearings in place eventually disintegrates. For our pool there is nothing better so I have this large expense every couple of years. Show details

Excellent product

Wanted a pool cleaner that worked on our 3 speed pool pump when set on low, and this one performed perfectly, very happy doesn’t get stuck in corners and just plugs away keeping the bottom of the pool spotless. Show details ·  1

The smallest leaf will stop it its tracks

Tried it for two weeks and have given up. Firstly, to get it to sink is always an issue. It wants to float, even with the supplied weights and shaking it madly to expel air. When it does work, the smallest twig or leaf will stop it. It's called 'Sprinter' because the pool owner has to sprint around the pool all day supervising the cleaning operation. I hope the store takes it back. Show details

Doesn’t climb the walls in fibreglass pool

We have gum and palm trees around the pool. Seemed logical to get Sprinta Plus. Purchased Sprinta Plus from Clarke Rubber based on reviews and an advise from company rep.
It arrived without a third adapter ( suitable for most pools, the one that we needed), had to go to the shop to pick it up.
To be honest we got a lot of help from company rep with a correct instalment.
Problem is it doesn’t climb the walls and stands at the wall looking as if wanting to climb up until we move it. A lot of money spent for half satisfaction. Show details

Fabulous pool cleaner which saves us time

We get a lot of leaves from our clumping bamboo trees alongside our pool, and the kreepy krauly is fantastic in cleaning up all the leaves. It’s easy to use. Our second kreepy krauly. Show details

Questions & Answers

My KK Sprinta is about 2 years old and now gets stuck on pool safety ledge. I know feet are worn but it also looks as if one of the legs isn’t working. Are these parts replaceable? Is it viable or better off replacing whole unit?
Thanks
KP

Our KK sprinta plus is now just over 2 years old and is now getting stuck on the 'main drain cover' on the base of our pool in the centre. So we have to keep going out and moving the KK. What can we do ?

Hello. y Sprinta will not leave the deep end of the pool. I have tried all the hints but nothing is working. Please help.

Thank you very much for your prompt reply. Your suggestion worked very well. The hose has stopped curling into ever-decreasing circles but unfortunately it still can't navigate the rise to the shallower end of the pool. Will give you guys a call.

Hi ChrisL, If it did originally go up, we will be able to assist in troubleshooting to get it to come up again. It may just be a worn part.

If it didn’t originally, then it can normally be troubleshooted.

All the best. Please give us a call.
