So far couldn't be happier. Great cleaner.


Bought this pool cleaner three weeks ago and so far am very happy with it. I previously had a kreepy krauley marathon and before that an orca predator, both would continually get stuck so thought I'd try a geared type cleaner. I haven't had to manually clean the pool at all since installing it other than sweep the stairs. It climbs the walls and even works works under the pool cover. I purchased the skimtrol vac plate as well, as recommended by the pool shop. I spent days reviewing pool cleaners before deciding on this one. Price, $510.00 for the cleaner and $65.00 for the plate and 3 year warranty made me go with this one. Time will tell I guess, but so far I couldn't be happier with it.

Questions & Answers

Mark A.asked

I recently bought my Rebel 2 Pool cleaner for my Pebble pool. The Rebel 2 Pool cleaner is having great difficulty climbing the walls, gets about 6 inches up and just floats back down. I had the pool shop do a call out, they dropped the float level down to about 6 inches up on the first small hose and dropped speed down.

This slightly helped. I was advised it was because of the new tyres especially because of the lugs on the tyres they are pushing the Rebel away from the sides. I was advised that as these wear down I should notice a difference in the climbing.
Is anyone else having this same problem ?

I have never had this problem, it sounds like the are talking rubbish to me, it should work straight away, I have a concrete pool (smooth surface) and it climbed the walls new and with worn tyres, I’m. Not sure how rough the pebble surface is but I suspect it’s just not getting the required suction

Hi Bryan, ty for the reply. I have used the device provided, with the Rebel 2 and it is at the maximum level for pressure. As to speaking rubbish I wish I could add a vid file of it on here. The lack of climbing and the drop away of the Rebel 2 was noted by the pool shop and their response was as I wrote. This was why I respectfully asked the question.



My rebel cleaner has worked good for two summers now but it seems to be "sleeping" more then ever. In a corner, half way up the side wall, it just stops and doesn't move. Once I manually move it back into the middle of the pool it will start working again but soon after goes to sleep again. Any help?

I have a 3 month old Pentair Rebel. It has been working fine until recently. It appears to primarily run in reverse. With the debris/suction opening Facing the rear and handle to the rear. Once it hits the wall, it will flip onto its top and stay there for a long time. Any suggestions?

Maybe take a video and take it back to shop if it’s only 3 months old, it’s still under warranty
