Great if you don't have trees

This is a great product , if you dont have trees . I am forever having to remove leaves and twigs from the suction hole , perhaps its too small , I find I have to go back to the "old school" suction head and pole at least once per week. I probably had better performance from my old Creepy Crawly. Mine is now a few years old and now just stops in the one place , wheels turning , not moving , I think the treads on the wheels my need replacing . Show details

Value for money

Does a great job. Sometimes bits of tree get stuck but easy to fix. You simply let it do it's thing then empty leaf basket. For the price well worth it Show details

Buyer beware

Not a bad cleaner for a small pool. If you have a big pool, it won't clean the entire surface area due to the cord constantly becoming coiled, and stops the machine from going further. The user manual says to uncoil the cord after a few uses and leave in the sun to dry. However, it still coils once you put it back in the water. Wish I had've know this prior to spending $2000!

Hates leaves

I have a two wheeler. I have many leaves from gum trees and the small suction hole where the leaves are sucked in constantly jams with a couple of small leaves. The leaves are not large but fairly small.
I am sick of pulling the cleaner out and clearing the leaves. Show details

Never worked satisfactorily and I will avoid in future

I was never satisfied with the wall cleaning ability of this cleaner, but its' mechanisms seized within 3 months of purchase and I returned it to the pool shop. They showed me how to open the unit by unscrewing 4 screws and then gently forced the wheels to rotate. I have done this a few times since, but after 8 months, the plastic handle, which I used to lift the cleaner out of the pool with, snapped. The plastic generally is brittle - the pool shop consider this to be a result of my leaving the cleaner in the pool permanently and my salt water pool having a high chlorine percentage. Now, after a year, the cleaner simply turns in small circles, cleaning nothing. I'm giving up and going to try something different. Show details

Best I can say is it was 'Okay'

Our PoolCleaner 2 Wheel has just died after 6 years.

It did an okay job for the first couple of years but then the cycles got smaller and smaller to the point it would only clean a third of the pool (deep end). I had to move it ALL the time to get it to clean the rest of the pool.

I had to pull it apart quite a few times over the years to clear out sticks and small rocks that jammed the mechanisms. Had to replace the rubber wheels and had to replace the majority of the hoses over the 6 year period.

As I said.......it was okay, but I'm not going to buy another one. Show details

Not worth the money

Continually gets stuck on the walls and doesn't move unless I physically move it. Hardly ever cleans the bottom of the pool where it should be. I would never recommend this pool cleaner. Show details

Only one for gum trees

Have had the pool cleaner for about 10 years .It has been the only one to cope with the leaf fall from gums. Easy to clean. Quiet.Pair with a surface skimmer on return and a zodiac leaf catcher and the jobs done. I am surrounded by gums and other massive leaf droppers. Show details

The Worst Pool Cleaning Device I've ever had

First - the one positive - when it is actually up and running, it cleans debris quite quickly. The problem with it is, it only runs for about an hour before it malfunctions and stops circulating. This is because due to a basic design flaw, twigs and leaves repeatedly get sucked into the gears, and so you have to dismantle the head with a screwdriver to clear out the debris before it will start running again. Who has the time or the inclination to do that? Anyway, last time I buy the cheapest cleaner at the shop, it's clear with this product you get what you pay for. Show details

How long do the tyres last on The pool cleaner gen 2? Ours is spinning in the same spot every now and then, think it could be the tread worn down.

Details

Features:

  • The PoolCleaner 2 Wheel is a suction cleaner that uses your existing pump and filter for power.
  • It has self-adjusting turbines, which maximise the power output from the water flow. This also lets the cleaner move at low suction and pressure, and the folding vanes allow larger debris to easily flow through it.
  • An internal programmed steering system causes the left wheel to reverse every now and then, letting the cleaner turn and travel into another direction. You can program these turns to be from 90 to 450°, ensuring maximum coverage in both deep and shallow ends.
  • The robust tire treads on the pool cleaner have humps that allow it to tackle uneven surfaces, making it ideal for all types of pool surfaces and shapes.
  • The cleaner has an adjustable skirt that lets it maintain optimal suction even at times when it comes across obstacles.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers loved how easy this pool cleaner was to use, saying that it was able to do its job while requiring barely any maintenance. They also noted how easy it was to clean.
  • Reviewers also found that the cleaner did in fact clean their whole pool, and was able to achieve maximum coverage in their small and medium-sized pools.
  • They also reported that the cleaner was able to pick up a wide range of debris.

A point of pain:

  • Some reviewers found that when the cleaner climbed the walls of their pool, it sometimes went above the surface and started sucking air and making a loud, unpleasant sound. A few reviewers found that the only way they could find to stop their cleaner from doing this was to prevent it from cleaning the walls at all.
