Review of XtremepowerUS Automatic Pool Cleaner Vacuum-generic Kreepy Krauly Pool Cleaner

A swimming pool cleaner has more pros than cons so if you haven’t bought one for yourself, don’t wait until you have wasted hours and hours of your time before purchasing this life saver. You don’t have to scrub the floors and walls of your pool yourself, or fish out leaves and other debris from your pool. If something else can do it without hurting your pocket, why not let it?

If what’s hindering you is your tight budget, don’t worry as not all pool cleaners cost hundreds of bucks. Check out the XtremepowerUS Automatic Pool Cleaner, which costs only a meager.

PROS: For the very affordable price, you’ll be able to lessen your burden of spending hours just cleaning and scrubbing your pool. With this, you’ll have something that will make your job faster, giving you more precious time to relax and spend time with family. It doesn’t require electricity, which saves you bucks in the long run. Not only that, the lack of electric need for this saves you from tangled wires and risk of electric shocks.

CONS: Because it is fully powered by your pump, it needs at least two horsepower pump to run efficiently without hiccups and sudden stops. The use of your pool’s pump and filtration system may also be a con as it adds burden to your system and it may also be costly, especially if your motor isn’t energy efficient.

Some customers also don’t like the cheap plastic feel of this product. Although it doesn’t break easily, it looks very fragile.

 

What are the important aspects of the XtremepowerUS Automatic Pool Cleaner Vacuum-generic Kreepy Krauly Pool Cleaner?

Type: This is the type of pool cleaner/vacuum that directly connects to your pump and filtration system to work. Consider it as an extension of your pump and that it helps with a faster and more effective cleaning. All you have to do is set it up and lower it onto the pool. After about three hours, the job is done and you have a spotless pool.

This brand is a generic one that was some sort of imitation of the original Kreepy Krauly. It works almost the same, except this one is definitely cheaper. It doesn’t need tools and electricity to work. It attaches onto your pool’s existing filtration system. In that case, you’ll have to check with your pump and filtration system if it can support a cleaner like this. Some customers have bought this and found out in the end that their pump’s horsepower is too low.

Features: Since you need to attach it to your skimmer, this product requires some good solid hose. It comes with 10 4-inch length very sturdy hose that’s considered enough for a mid-sized pool. Some customers considered that the hose that comes with this “knock-off” model of Kreepy Krauly looks much more sturdy as the ones they had in their Baracuda model, which cost them more compared to this brand.

Setting it up is very easy; it’ll take you about 10 minutes of initial assembly. It comes with a manual written in English and accompanied by several diagrams. The manual also contains the names and serial numbers of parts that you need for replacement in case it breaks. It also has an eyeball diverter to plug into the cleaner line if it gets stuck.

Ease of Use: This low price Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner combats in or above ground pools with ease. It works regardless of shape or depth and on all pool surfaces such as vinyl, concrete, and fiberglass. It only has one major moving part, the flapper, which avoids a lot of repair costs in the future. If ever you’ll need to replace the flapper, it’s not that expensive and the parts can be bought in any major hardware stores.

It is quick to assemble and use; all you need to do is simply plug the unit into your skimmer and effortlessly clean your pool. It will remove dirt, twigs, leaves and debris from your pool. There are no wheels that get stuck, no gears that will break, and no diaphragms to replace like the ones found in other brands like Hayward and Baracuda automatic pool cleaners.

What other things should you know about the XtremepowerUS Automatic Pool Cleaner Vacuum-generic Kreepy Krauly Pool Cleaner?

As mentioned, it is very easy to assemble and as well as operating it. After all the necessary connections to your pump and filtration system, you’re ready to go. Many users have complained about it getting stuck in one particular area of the pool. However, this is very easy to solve.

It actually has something to do with the suction pressure. If you have it set too strong, you’ll know because the cleaner will be really loud and won’t move because it would get stuck in the pool.

You have to lower the suction from the skimmer by adjusting the bottom main drain a little. Take note that if you set the skimmer too low, there would not be enough suction that the pool cleaner won’t move on its own. It all heavily relies on the suction. When you get it to work, you’ll find that it moves seamlessly and effortlessly around your pool, sucking and brushing all the dirt away.

Set your expectations though because this pool cleaner isn’t that good at going up walls. Maybe you’ll see it trying to get up onto a slanted wall, but never a straight one. You’ll have to exert effort at helping get the dirt off the walls, hard to reach areas, and corners that this pool cleaner won’t reach.

 

The Verdict

This is one of the best pool cleaners out there because of its super affordable price and effective function. It definitely doesn’t sacrifice quality just to be able to make the price low compared to other brands. It effectively scrubs the pool floors clean and sucks the dirt and debris from the water. With proper care and maintenance, this XtremepowerUS Automatic Pool Cleaner will last you years of use.
