Simplicity of design, high quality Australian components and minimal moving parts
I have owned a Kreepy Krauly for over 30 years. In September 2023 my old Kreepy Krauly had reached the end of its life. After looking at what was available, I chose to replace my existing Kreepy Krauly with a new Kreepy Krauly VTX-7. Simplicity of design, high quality Australian manufactured components, minimal moving parts and the availability of those parts adds up to why I purchased another Kreepy Krauly, and I installed it myself. I have a number of trees around the pool and leaves large and small as well as dust and dirt are constantly dropping into the pool, but my new Kreepy Krauly VTX-7 picks them up and has performed up to the standard I expected.Show details
Cleans 2/3 of pool, keeps getting stuck, No product support, misleading purchase information
Where to start with this product. We have a rectangular pool about 8m in length which this cleaner only achieved about 5m nearest to the skimmer box being cleaned. Frequently clogged on gum leaves. It would constantly hang up in rounded corners. Tried countless iterations of weight balancing, hose length, pump RPM, hose straightening, hose twisting to no avail. Pool Shop refused replacement because it was used and Kreepy Krauly (Autopools) offer no support either, all responsibility for refunds and warranty is passed onto the poor old pool shop... Read more apparently. I've never experienced such poor customer support from manufacturer or distributor. Only silver lining from this story is the Kreepy Krauly RX-TANK works great! Just not looking forward to dealing with any warranty claims if something breaks.
How did this win an award? Worst one we’ve ever had
Doesn’t work under a pool cover
Gets stuck on everything including our pool light
Hands down the worst we’ve ever had. Would have been better sticking with the Bunnings special for less than half the price.
don’t buy this junk. After going back and forth with the pool shop for a month we’ve told them enough take it back. It doesn’t work at all as advertised. It’s super expensive and for the price it should handle moving around a pool ok including when the cover is on like the super cheap Bunnings ones. So underwhelmed. I’d never buy this brand again and I certainly don’t recommend to anyone.Show details
This is the worst pool cleaner imaginable. I've had 3 other pool cleaners ( 2 crawlers and a robot), all had some small faults, but generally worked their way around my pool and cleaned up everything (have a fair bit of leaf litter). I have a rectangular concrete pool that is only 9 meters long - pretty standard shape and depth.
This cleaner gets stuck in odd places, jams up with and without leaves in the throat and does not get around the whole pool.
I've left the hoses in the sun to loosen up the kinks, changed the weights around, put more hose, then less, then more again. All to no avail.
I don't usually like to bag products, but this is just so poor its unbelievable.
Don't waste your time or money.
$800 bucks down the drain.
Best Pool Cleaner & Service - highly recommend.
We just moved into a new (older) house with an older concrete pool.
We had been looking at lots of pool cleaners ranging up to nearly $3k. Then we met Sarah who recommended the KK VTX-7. Sarah was super knowledgeable and gave us all the right information to choose the best pool cleaner for our type of pool.
Within a few days our pool is sparkly clean and ready for summer. The KK is so easy to use and very cost effective. We just leave it in and it keeps our pool constantly clean. The level of service and help we received by Sarah and her team at KK was second to none. So good in fact that we are leaving this 5 star review. If you are looking for the best pool cleaner - definitely go Kreepy Krauly. The Best in the biz.Show details
Impressed with how it works.
It powers through leaves, dirt, small twigs & pollen.
We've tried plenty of cheaper crawlers that a re run ish after 1 year & get stuck in the corner of the pool.
Simply the best
Our old Kreepy was 13 years old and finally retired itself. After some adjusting our new Kreepy is just as thorough as our old. I cant imagine having a pool without a Kreepy Krauly in it.Show details

Performance & Service unbeatable
Got the VTX7 a couple of years ago for our pebblecrete pool. Contacted KK out of warranty with a concern. There was no fault with the product, but with our installation, which was quickly and happily rectified. The pool has never looked better. It deals with the many leaves etc. from surrounding gum trees very easily. The after sales service (even out of warranty in our case) is brilliant. Look no further if you want a high standard Australian made pool cleaner, with incredible after sales service.Show details
Perfect for our tiled pool!
I have only owned for a few weeks but this pool cleaner is fantastic. We just bought a house with a pool and wanted a great automatic cleaner to keep the pool always looking good that we could just set and forget. Having to take a robot in and out all the time didn't appeal to us and we wanted the pool looking spotless all the time which would have meant we would have been putting a robot in and out all the time. Originally we wanted the RX Tank but as our pool has curved bottoms and corners and is fully tiled, while it was great on the floors... Read morethe tank couldn't get up the walls. So we bought the VTX-7 since it is ideally designed for our pool type. It climbs the walls high with ease - we didn't even need to upgrade to a cork sole like we thought we might when buying. It does a thorough job and the water looks so clean and clear as it's so well circulated. Our son swims in the pool with the cleaner on and he's not bothered by it at all. The hoses even blend in well with the colour of our pool! We don't need to take it out, we just leave it in all the time. We would only ever remove it if we had a bunch of people coming for a pool party or something. Also love that this is Australian made so well worth the extra cost over other cheap and nasty cleaners!
Excellent product! Its simply the classic ol reliable.
Excellent product! Its simply the classic ol reliable pool cleaner! Its a solid performer and would highly recommend!
We've had it for over 12 months now and its still running as strong as day one. It's been able to pick up all types of debris and its easy to remove from the pool when friends come over.

Really reliable Kreepy Krauly VTX7
We use a Kreepy Krauly. It does a great job cleaning out the pine needles, lili pilli berries and gum leaves from our neighbour's trees. This is our second Kreepy Krauly (after 30 years) and the new VTX7 seems to pick up larger leaves than our original.
It works well, saves a lot of time and was a good buy.
Cannot live without my Kreepy
Leaves, dirt, tree seeds and anything else that blows in when it is windy. When swimming the Kreepy is happy to share the pool and continues to clean around you.Show details

Questions & Answers
Our 25 year old Kreepy is on its last legs and looking to buy a new one. People have loaned us a Barracuda and another brand but crappy. After reading these reviews now I’m concerned about what to get!
Hi Traci, I spent the money thinking it would be like / better than the old ones. Sadly, it’s not. It’s honestly a hopeless unit. Keep me updated on what you find and how it performs. Good luck!
Nearest stockist please - Marrickville NSW 2204?
My vtx7 kreepy krauly o my seems to go around the edges of the pool
can it be used in a fibre glass pool
Yes, it is can. We do recommend you use our pool cleaner selector and ensure you have a curved bottom edge. https://www.kreepykrauly.com.au/poolselector/
The VTX-7, is also designed for medium to large pool too. For compact pool try VTX-3.
Alternatively Sprinta Plus was designed from the ground up for fibreglass. We do offer Free Home Demos depending on area. https://www.kreepykrauly.com.au/request-demo/
