What I Dislike About Hayward SharkVac

The downside is that the machine has a problem on gathering large debris such as leaves. It also does not climb walls unlike other robotic cleaners, even though it does surprisingly clean the pool effectively.

Moreover, Hayward should come up in any way to raise and lower the appliance into the pool beside from its power cord. Apart from the heaviness of the machine, the line can wear if it’s regularly done.

  • Simple access filter cartridges
  • The incorporated quick clean technology scours most shape and size of pools in more or less 90 minutes.
  • Runs separately from pool’s pump and filter system. Thus, can help you save money
  • No tools nor hose attachments needed.
  • Has the power to clean a pool irrespective of its type and size.


  • Heavy

The Hayward SharkVac is a robotic pool cleaner that works on in ground pool. It’s incredibly beyond reaching for someone looking for a better-than-average robot.

This robot has limited capability such as climbing walls, thus technically, only the pools floor will be kept clean. Nonetheless, despite its downside, a lot of users find it to be very effective and a good choice to buy especially when money matters.
