      Rated 5 out of 5 by from This purchase was a good decision I bought this item two weeks ago after much research. I read a LOT of reviews on multiple websites with several different brands and types looking for a decent pool vacuum cleaner for my Doughboy above ground pool. This purchase turned out to be a very good decision. The vacuum works as it should. Does not get stuck or coil up anywhere. No problems here. Great price offering from this vendor too. Yes I would recommend this vendor AND this product to a friend!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my bug!!!! Our pool water was clear but the bottom was covered in dead algae, undisolved chlorine , hard water crud, etc. we plugged in the bug & he went to work. We backwashed once but our critter had our 16x8 pool squeaky clean in a couple of hours. He’s my new best friend & the price was great!!!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from waste of money the description for this product says it will work on flat and dished above ground pools.i have an above ground pool with a slight dish around the edges, and this product keeps stopping so i have to continually keep stopping and starting the pump to get it moving again. it doesn't do what it suggests i would NOT suggest buying this product

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase for an above ground pool We have had our existing Hayward critter for 15 years and it still running strong. I'm going to get another one as a back up. This saves me about a half an hour a day of time cleaning the pool and keeps the pool absolutely spotless.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real time saver! My previous bug finally was wearing out after many, many years of use. The cleaning time saved by the bug is well worth the cost.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase! We are very pleased with this product. I don't know why we didn't buy it sooner. It is easy to use and does a good job cleaning.
