After reading the negative feedback, I was hesitant to order this, but the concept is so perfect, I just had to try it.

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 was skeptical reading one of the reviews, but took a chance because it was purchased locally. I absolutely love it. We just had a rain and windstorm and didn't have time to cover the pool. Wallah!! Picked up the vacuum and it picked up the debris including the leaves on the bottom. It really makes it a lot easier to vacuum daily-before I had to hook up the hose to the vacuuming device. I have a 15' above ground pool and it works well for me. I've charged it already and was able to use it 8 times before recharging. I didn't expect that many uses before recharging. I'm absolutely loving it! It's a keeper for us.

I don't normally write reviews but this product is pretty darned good. Its refreshing not to have to hook up your hose to your pump and turn this valve off and this valve on and take water out of your pool. Completely free of any hoses, wires etc. The only thing that made me skeptical about buying this and also why I gave the four stars is because the on/off is truly very, very hard to use. When its new out of the box you think that the on/off wont be a problem....until you put it in the pool and then try to turn it off. I didn't really believe the other reviewers who mentioned this issue because I have a very strong grip, so that is something I haven't had to worry about. Ok, well lesson learned. I did learn a trick to it though, if you take a towel or hand towel and dry it off first it isn't difficult at all to unscrew. Naturally, it is difficult to turn anything when its wet, but I couldn't turn it when I had the towel on it for extra grip. That's when I discovered to dry it off then turn. Overall, pretty descent suction, baggie is easy to empty, cleaning easy, charging is easy, use is easy, assembly....well easy. So yeah four stars definitely seems accurate. Hopes this helps all you pool owners!

This is truly a must have product. We have a large inground pool, and it cleans it up quickly and easily. Great for the in between touch ups. I never bought the sand and silt bag because of the price, instead I use a cut down knee high nylon stocking, placed inside the bag it comes with and fold it over the rubber, this method picks up every last bit of sand (we live near the beach).

We have a swim spa by Cal Spas. Its construction is like a hot tub but it is larger -- about 8' x 15' and 4' deep. For the first year, we muddled along cleaning it before each use with hand-operated spa wand. Our swim spa is recessed about 3 feet with only the top foot above the deck level, which meant bending over to reach the bottom with the spa wand while pumping away by hand to do the cleaning. Given the size of the swim spa this was time consuming in addition to being awkward. I nearly always got both hands wet in the process. We use our swim spa all year round and actually more frequently in winter than in summer. It was no fun at all to be out laboriously cleaning the spa for 5-10 minutes in near or sub-freezing temperatures while the rest of the family peers through the window from the warm indoors waiting for the job to be done.

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.

This is a good vacuum but it's not totally fantastic. I have to say that I am satisfied enough to keep this and not return it. Some people that have had problems might not have cleaned the bag frequently enough while using the vacuum. You really have to clean it every few minutes and then it sucks stuff up pretty well. And it's really a quick process to clean the bag so don't get lazy about it and you'll have much better results! There are good points and bad points...
The good:
picks up debris pretty well.
No hose attached which makes it easy to handle
The bad:
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.
