After reading a number of reviews on many different competing varieties of pool cleaner, I thought I'd give this one a try. The reviews for products made by Pentair generally seemed better than those for the competition's products, and when I was younger my family had a single Kreepy Krauly that was around as far back as I can remember. As for why I chose this model over the Kreepy Krauly Classic, I honestly can't really say. I can't find much information on the Pentair website regarding which of their suction-side cleaners is the "best" model, so I kind of took a guess. Price doesn't even help much, since I've found that some places charge more for the Classic, and some charge more for the Kruiser.

One thing that I did notice in the reviews for the Classic is that a number of people have complained about having to replace several parts every year. The good thing about the Kruiser is that there are really only a couple of things that look like they'll need eventual replacement -- two pieces that touch the pool surface (eventually they will wear down and need to be replaced when the 'tread pattern' disappears), and maybe the flapper since it's a moving part, although looking at it I'd be surprised if anything happened to it since it's tucked away and pretty sturdy.

The Kruiser comes with a LOT of stuff. I was surprised at how thorough the company is when including parts. In addition to the cleaner head, the rubber vacuum seal/sweeper disc thingy, and the hoses, you'll also get a couple of hose weights and a bag full of extra goodies.

The cleaner head is already assembled. All you have to do is slip on the big blue rubber disc and attach the hoses. That's it, your pool cleaner has been completed!

I was sick of replacing the diaphragm on my Baracuda G3 every year. The Kreepy Krauly Kruiser has no moving parts! It climbs the sides of the pool better than the Baracuda G3. I have a custom shaped pool so this is very important to me. It might be a little more expensive than other Baracuda's but it is worth every penny you save in maintenance and trips to the pool store. Keep it simple! This thing rocks!

The Kreepy Krauly Kruiser pool vac has been great...been running it four hours per day for four months now...whenever our pump runs. It cleaned up all the silt and junk at the bottom of our pool within the 1st two days. Only about six times in four months has it needed help. Twice we found it upside down and unable to move--probably it was climbing a wall when the pump turned off and so it fell and flipped over. Once we found the cleaning end detached at the bottom of the pool--don't know what happened there. Twice we found the hose all wound up/twisted in circles so it couldn't hardly move. One it got plugged with some vine plant material. In every case the fix took about five minutes or less and the Kreepy was back in action.

Shop around: We bought ours for about $250 with free s&h and received a $50 rebate....some places had the same model for as much as $450.

love this product. i just bought a new home with an in-ground pool & didn't really know anything about pools or cleaning them. this product was easy to understand, easy to put in my pool and it started working immediately. it takes a little bit of tweaking on the regulator and moving around your jets that push water back into the pool from the pump to ensure the cleaner goes all around the bottom of the pool. in no time at all it is cleaning!! i had the local pool company come out and check out my equipment (filter, pump, etc) and they said many pool companies don't sell this product because it works so well. they don't get customers coming back in the store, asking for parts, etc. because this product works so well! they don't get that repeat business coming back to the store, because it simply works!! great product, i'd recommend to everyone!

This would be a five star cleaner except for the fact that it needs just the right suction too work. Too little suction and it doesn't move, too much suction and it tends to lean back with only half the cleaner touching the pool floor. The initial is the hardest, and you will need to readjust the cleaner as the filter gets dirty. After cleaning the filter you will also need to turn the suction down.

With that said, this is a great cleaner. It is very durable. The only part that I have changed on them is the Fin Disk, the large circle rubber pad (These are in cleaners that are 3 yrs old). The other parts seem to be fine after 3 years. I have three of these on my route.

It works just like the original Kreepy Krauly, but it is completely silent since the flapper is made of rubber. It will move around very well and leave the entire pool spotless. It will also pick up large debris.

The really cool thing is it has a flip out access to clear any debris that gets caught in the cleaner, very convenient.

It gets out of corners and the step area very well. If it does get caught up in any area of your pool there is a great after market product called the TWISTER (Made by Sun solar Rings or by Aqua Quip - original), which turns all the hoses 3 times every hour, effectively moving the cleaner out of the jam.

This is a solid cleaner. It is priced higher than a comparable Barracuda cleaner, but it has proven to be more durable also. It also comes with a Vac Lock for your side port which retails for around $25.00.
