In the Poolcleaner 896584000020 4X suction pool cleaner review, we’ll look at the pros and cons of this model.
Pros of The Poolcleaner
This pool cleaner can go long and deep, cleaning the deepest parts of diving pools and the entire bottom of large pools. The Poolcleaner 896584000020 can clean irregularly shaped pools, deep ones and long ones that corded pool cleaners can’t quite complete.
This pool cleaner can pass over irregular surfaces, ideal for cleaners that need to clean pools with concrete ridges on the bottom to improve traction for those with mobility restrictions getting in and out. It also passes over pool drain covers without any problems. You can adjust the blades to the height you need, if the default setting isn’t good enough.
The pool cleaner’s flexible vanes let large debris pass through. It won’t take in the fine bits of leaves while leaving large leaves lying on the bottom of the pool.
The pool cleaner’s tire treads last a long time. And the wheels’ treads have indicators to let you know when they need to be replaced.
It is relatively cheap given its performance. This pool cleaner is relatively quiet.
This pool cleaner will partially climb the walls to remove debris. There are some pool cleaners that clean the bottom and only the bottom of the pool. One of the ironies of this pool cleaner is that it climbs the walls better after the tread has started to wear down.
Cons of The PoolCleaner
The standard tires don’t work in vinyl pools. That requires a different set of tires, as would a fiberglass pool. If you want it to work in an extra-large pool, plan on ordering extra hoses.
It takes four to six hours to clean a large pool, and you cannot program it to start or stop at a specific time.
The pool cleaner bag opens and closes with Velcro, and the opening get fouled by debris. You have to take the pool cleaner out if you want to put pool shock in the water. The mechanical system is not sealed, so leaves sometimes get into the gears and need to be manually removed.
Observations about this Model
This Poolcleaner 896584000020 4X suction pool cleaner review would not be complete without information that is neither a point for or against the model but would nevertheless affect some shoppers’ opinions about the model.
This pool cleaner doesn’t have brushes or pads that scrub the pool floor. It will pick up leaves, dead bugs, broken plastic and so forth but will not scrub algae off the bottom of the pool.
Performance of the pool cleaner drops if there is a solar cover on the pool. Hayward Industries bought Poolvergnuegen in 2013. Hayward has no intention of shutting down this line of products, but in the future, replacement parts for the Poolvergnuegen pool cleaner may be under the Hayward name.
Leslie’s Pool Supply is one of the few national sources of replacement parts for this pool cleaner, so you aren’t limited to online suppliers for replacement parts. They have replacement kits for the tires, as well as entire pool cleaners by Poolvergnuegen. Getting other replacement parts, though, requires online shopping or one of the few pool supply companies that can order it for you.
This pool cleaner relies on water flow, not water pressure, to work. Make sure you can supply the necessary water flow to drive the unit before installing it.
