Disappointing product

A very disappointing purchase. Cleans well until it gets to the steps of the pool upon which time it becomes stuck and is unable to dislodge itself. I have tried all three level settings and trouble shooting etc. but problem persists. Spent $599 on a product that requires a baby sitter to continually dislodge it. I’ve got to the point where I simply turn off the pool pump to save me having to continually dislodge the cleaner. Show details

Totally useless

I have had this cleaner for 4 years, it has been an endless source of frustration and a huge waste of time. If you have leaves in your pool, even just a few it will require constant strip downs. The leaves get caught in the blades. The turbo pushes leaves away from the suction hole which means it takes much longer to clean the pool. It will climb above the water line and suck air into the pump even when you adjust the flow rate. Read the other reviews, there is a reason this cleaner gets such a low rating. Forgot to mention it will get stuck on steps and light fittings.
Totally unfit for purpose!! Show details

Excellent pool cleaner

I have an in grounf small fibreglass / gelcoat pool. Other suction type cleaners get stuck in corners and do not clean all areas. This little MX6 has none of those issues and does a fantastic job. It even cleans the sides of the pool. I adjust the pool pump speed to get the best performance. The tune up kit (scrubber) is worth the money. No issues to date after 4 months of relatively heavy use. Note: I do not have trees with large leaves near my pool. Show details

Frustrating

The MX6 is constantly getting the tracks caught on the edges and when it does when it does release it goes onto its back like a 'turtle'on the bottom and stays there. While it gets clogged frequently it is easily enough to remove and return to the water, but its like having small children in your pool, you can't take your eyes off it.
I must have been expecting too much after having a Heyward for 12 years, but the MX6 unfortunately is a dud. Show details

Constantly clogged with leaves

This is a nice, compact unit that works really well when the pool is already clean.

However when there are leaves in the pool, every couple of minutes it stops as it’s jammed by a single leaf. Quite disappointing given this is why I bought it - to clean the leaves.

Unless I’m doing something wrong, I wouldn’t recommend it for a leafy area. Show details

***WARNING***** Don't Buy It

Will only clean a clean pool. One leaf and it gets clogged. This is not a pool cleaner for Australian conditions!!!!!!!!! Zodiac Australia , what the hell are you doing selling crap like this? Show details

Really Dissapointing

Really Dissapointing. When it works it does a great job but barely works. I have had for 3 months and the rubber treads constantly fall off. I put them back on and 10 minutes later they fall off again. For a $500 cleaner I would expect more than 3 months use. All previous cleaners have been better and lasted longer. I wouldn't buy again. Show details

Disappointed and shocked

I Bought an Mx6, within 2 weeks it broke because of a small amount of sand in pool which damaged the engine and gearbox. No warranty, no solution, no accountability. Show details

works perfect for 6 years, still going strong

she won't suck sticks or pebbles. but pics up our small leaves from the trees in yard.
pools 8x5 concrete and cleans it Cristal in 3 hours.
U can see it laying tracks through the dirt.
clings to the walls . yes it pops up to waterline and takes some air but filter flushes it back through. gets stuck on step every once in a while and just spins off when it does it's turning motion. we run a zodiac compact salt chlorinator with 110 cartridge. love the mx6 so do my 2 mates.
easy to set up aswell. Show details

Just doesn't work!!

Let me just say that I don't like to give up on things, but this cleaner is just ridiculous!! I have tried every bit of advice that I have found on the internet, or have been given from pool professionals and despite all this in the 4 months I have owned this cleaner I have only managed to get this thing to run three times. My wife said to me today, " this was the biggest waste of money she has ever spent". And I have to agree. Would not recommend rhis product sorry. Show details

Does A Good Job Of Cleaning The Floor And Walls

I bought an MX6 just less than a year ago and I was so impressed with its performance I recommended it to a mate. He is happy with his also. However, over the past couple of months one track gets displaced and stops the cleaner doing its job, of course with only one track turning it does circles. I have ordered new tracks as I think one of them has stretched and now is prone to being easily displaced. When I change it I will know. I have only had one stick get stuck it handles leaves fine. Of course if the pool has loads of leaves in I scoop them out first. Show reply

Zodiac pool vacuum mx6

I use to own a hayward and it worked wonders for many years (approx. 10 I think with only a couple of times it needed repairing), I couldn't afford to replace it with another hayward at the time however I wished I had of. This zodiac is a complete pain in the behind. It literally cannot run a day without it getting stuck either on a step or have debris in the machine. I am forever having to pull it out to get the small pieces of sticks or leaves out as it gets clogged easily. I am now looking at replacing it with a hayward as we speak. Show details

Cheap piece of junk

I’ve purchased a house that came with this model pool cleaner (Zodiac mx6). It a does a marginal job of cleaning at best. Constantly becomes stuck in corners and on edges - really frustrating to watch when you pay decent money to run the pump and filter all day. Fails to clean pool walls. Seems to run over the same areas all the time and completely misses others. Every time I’m in the yard I see this heap of trash stuck on the corner of my pool. I’ve adjusted the flow settings and this makes basically no difference to the cleaner’s operation. It’s a total waste of time and money in my opinion. Would rate zero stars if that was an option.

Hi. On my mx 6 the one track keep on "climbing" of the roller on 1 side only. To the inside leading the machine in circles. I did replace the tracks and even the bearings on the roller but only to have complete running for an hour or 2. Please help. I love this machine.

Only 2 minor issues..one is that the sweeper sometimes goes up to high on the pool sides and comes out of the water some, girgles and splashes there and then finally turns and goes down. The other, sometimes it pops up on the back wheels for a bit before returning back on 4 wheels.
