Above Ground Pool Cleaners
The Hayward family of above-ground pool cleaners is designed to clean the bottom of all sizes and shapes of above-ground/on-ground pools automatically. These attractive little fellows operate off the pool's existing filtration system and feature our exclusive SmartDrive program steering, so it won't miss a spot. Performance, price and stimulating 4-color cartons are sure to make this your favorite pool purchase of the summer.
Put away your manual for good
Hayward’s family of above ground cleaners provides you with easy, trouble-free operation. It works with your existing filtration system, and everything for simple, 10-minute-or-less installation is included – even the hoses. Not only will vacuuming be easier, but faster too. Every cleaner in the family utilizes patented SmartDrive programmed steering to clean faster and more thoroughly than random cleaners. Each improves water circulation by pulling water from the bottom of your pool as it moves, which helps your pool stays cleaner. Our family of superior quality cleaners is designed to keep your pool at its sparkling best, without the drudgery of manual cleaning. And it’s from Hayward, the company that engineered automatic pool cleaning technology.
A cleaner for everyone
Adults and kids alike love Hayward’s family of above ground cleaners. If it is luck that you need, then AquaBug is for you. This ladybug designed cleaner will fly across the bottom of your pool, seamlessly cleaning every inch of the floor. If deep water discovery peaks your interest, then Diver Dave is your guy. He can travel to the deep depths of your pool, crawling along the bottom and picking up all of the debris that has drifted down. Wanda the Whale completes this happy family. If you are looking for fun and cute ocean life to entertain your pool and your kids, Wanda is definitely the cleaner for you. A member of this family is waiting to join yours, so stop waiting and bring one home today!
This cleaner is meant to be used on permanently installed above-ground swimming pools only. A permanently installed pool is installed in or on the ground such that it cannot be readily disassembled for storage. As a result, this cleaner is not recommended for use on Intex or other soft-sided pools.
From the Manufacturer

UPDATE: Starting season #2 and Wanda is going strong. One of the best purchases I've made in a long time.
I just unscrewed the plastic strainer inlet cap on the 2nd intake and covered the 1" suction port inside it with an old swimming goggle. The filter's suction holds it in place and Wanda is better able to do her thing. I also later added a leaf strainer basket due to things plugging that little 1" port inside the inlet Wanda was using and am now trouble free!
Love this whale even though her tail keeps falling off (people were right about that too)🐳
Overall, it works in the areas that it reaches, but you cant really use it as a "set it and forget it" type of vacuum; you need to keep checking in on it and manually moving it to parts of the pool that it has not reached on its own. If you are in a rush to get the pool cleaned, you can manually vacuum in probably a fifth of the time it takes Wanda to do the job.
