I charged it for the recommended three hours and it performed better than I could have expected. One nice thing that I did not notice in the write-up is that the unit comes with two "slime socks" to filter very small particles. I did have to stop a bunch of times to clean these socks, but that's because of all the fine debris that I needed to pick up, and the unit did a really, really good job at cleaning the fine debris. (This is the exact reason that I purchased the unit.)
I am using this on an 18' round above ground pool and I was able to take the pool from "yuck" to "yay!" in about an hour. Keep in mind that it was only my first use, but if first impressions count for anything, I am very excited to use this great little device for years to come.
I began searching for an alternative solution and found the Pool Blaster Catfish. In addition to the Catfish, which does not come with a pole, I bought a "deluxe 3-piece telepole" for $35 (blue, 5'-15' long). The pole installed easily (it isn't practical to remove between uses and so needs to be stored with the pole intact once installed). We have had our Catfish since December 2007 and it is now April 2009. After over a year of regular use, it still looks and works like new! Cleaning the swim spa takes just a couple of minute now and is effortless and more effective compared to the spa wand. No more bending over or wet (frozen) hands. We love this product and completely recommend it to folks with a hot tub, swim spa or other small pool.
We live in the Seattle area and store our Catfish on the patio outside all year where it is plugged in between uses.Read more ›
picks up debris pretty well.
No hose attached which makes it easy to handle
Charge doesn't hold long enough to vacuum entire 18 foot pool (remedy: I just vacuum most of it and then charge for a couple of hours more and then get back to the pool and finish the job)
Pole does not come with the vacuum (and they are expensive in my opinion!! so you have to dish out more money for the pole)
Micro bag really doesn't work because when you put it on it's impossible to close the bag cover, so it really is not even an option to use the micro bag (however, the regular bag basically does the trick so it's not terrible that I can't use the micro bag)
Overall, this is a pretty good vacuum. I'm happy to not have to attach it to a hose! I've read some complaints about turning it on and off. Really, it's not difficult. You just have to put you're entire hand around the bottom, get a good grip and twist so I wouldn't let those complaints stop you from purchasing this vacuum.

This is very easy to use. Works great. You can either get in the pool and clean or stand outside the pool.Published 1 day ago by larhonda james
Didnt work well unless picking up leaves ect. The fine dirt would just circulate back into the pool. Not worth the money.Published 10 days ago by Michelle

Awesome (MANUAL) pool vacuum. I much rather my Aquabot because all I had to do was turn it on and go but it broke after 2 years for reasons non-related to the machine's quality.Published 24 days ago by BRIDGET B BEAL
It is okay for cleaning up small debris in the pool - a real pain to secure the filter hose and that is cheaply made - the part broke after about 10 uses - need to order a new part... Read morePublished 27 days ago by David H. Elbert
