Product Description

Hayward Blu is a smart choice for all types of in-ground pools. Exclusive SmartDrive technology makes it faster and more efficient than random-style pool cleaners. It moves in a predetermined series of turns to systematically provide more thorough coverage. Discriminating pool owners will value Hayward Blu’s ability to clean their pool in an intelligent manner. Compared to other suction cleaners, its technology also allows for silent operation.

Hayward Blu gives pool owners easy, trouble-free operation - no emptying or replacing debris bags. Getting a sparkling clean pool is effortless. And because it’s powered by existing filtration systems, there’s no expense of an energy-consuming booster pump.

Features and Benefits:

  • Exclusive SmartDrive® - programmed steering moves cleaner in a predetermined series of turns for more thorough cleaning
  • Advanced Suction Technology utilizes pool’s existing filtration system - no booster pump required
  • Silent Operation - No pulsating hoses or noisy parts, for a peaceful pool environment
  • Easy to use - Connects in less than 10 minutes to skimmer or suction port
  • 32 feet of hose (10 Hoses)
  • 1 Year Limited Warranty

**NOTE: For Vinyl/Fiberglass surface pool's you'll need to purchase different Pod Shoes, MFG # AXV413P.**

I currently use a kreepy krauly style cleaner that gets stuck in the corner, will this cleaner work through corners?

A     Answered on 11/27/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

Good Afternoon- The Hayward Blu In-ground Suction Swimming Pool Cleaner, w/Hoses - BLUCON is a great cleaner and works well. If you are looking for a good cleaner with the same wide cleaning path, but that doesn't get stuck in corners then I would recommend the Baracuda MX8 Complete w/ Hose

I have a 27X32X8ft deep rectangle vinyl pool with a 6” safety ledge around the deep end. Instead of normal square corners I have rounded corners. Would the cleaner work in this pool or would you recommend another one?

How does the Hayward Blu Con Cleaner handle climbing the walls in a in-Ground Guinite Pool

Hi Jack, this will really depend on the power of your pump but as long as you have a 1 HP or larger pump then the cleaner should climb the walls just fine.

I currently use a Polaris pool cleaner on my vinyl lined pool. Is the blu con a good replacement for the Polaris?

A     Answered on 11/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Do you know if your current Polaris works off of suction or does it have a bag on top and the debris is collected in the bag? Most Polaris cleaners are pressure cleaners where the debris is collected in the bag on the top of the cleaner and the cleaner is powered by a separate booster pump. If you went with the BluCon you would simply plug the hose into your skimmer and you would no longer use the Polaris Booster pump. The BluCon would be powered by your main filter pump and suck up the debris to be collected back in your filter.

does my suction hose for my pool cleaner fit right into the hayword ? my suction hose attached to bottom of skimmer?

A     Answered on 11/22/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Tommy, This cleaner does come with it's own hoses so I would suggest using the hoses that come with the cleaner, however most cleaner hoses are universal meaning your current hoses should work with the hoses that are included with the BluCon if you ever needed to use those as replacements.

?     Asked on 11/22/2018 by

tell me what sort of hookup is required to run the haywood pool cleaner

A     Answered on 11/22/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The hose from the Hayward cleaner simply goes into the port at the bottom of your skimmer and whenever your pool pump turns on then the cleaner goes around the bottom of the pool sucking up debris. Also, some pools have a dedicated suction port and for those pools, the hose just gets inserted into that port. Pretty simple!

Moved into a new house earlier this summer. I have an inground vinyl lined pool. I have finally tackled the algae monster and my water is crystal clear but there is tons of dead algae on the bottom.

?     Asked on 4/30/2018 by

I have an older Hayward vac (looks like the blu) that has had quite a few parts replaced (spindle kit, bumper, flaps, wings, hoses and gear) but still gets stuck in a vertical position on different sides the pool walls. It obviously has a good suction since it does climb up some walls (and sometimes breach the water sucking in air before falling off). It appears to have diminished turn radius. Before this, it used to turn as it climbs up a wall. What do you recommend to do next? Thanks

A     Answered on 5/3/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. I would recommend that you check the Gear Box. Also, reduce the suction to the cleaner, that will prevent it from climbing out of the pool.

Hi, David. All of these units will work as a replacement. The difference between all of these units is the shell, the internal parts are all the same. I would recommend this Hayward BLUCON unit, and it will work just as good as the others.

A     Answered on 6/4/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Shanell. The Hayward Blu Cleaner requires a suction port. You can use your pool skimmer if you do not have a dedicated vacuum port. This unit comes with 32 feet of hose which may not be enough depending on where your suction port is located. Installation requirements are located in the Hayward Blu Owner's Manual.

Does it clean the walls of the pool

A     Answered on 5/18/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

This cleaner may be able to clean the walls of the pool but that will based on the setting of the cleaner, finish of the pool and the suction of the pool pump. In the end it is always advised to manually brush the swimming pool once a week as to not necessarily depend entirely on the cleaner to get all areas of the pool.

You can use a dual speed pump on your pool but the low-speed likely will not generate enough suction to run the cleaner.

Hi, I recently purchased a home with a 17X30 inground pool. It had a Polaris 360 which has it's own power switch and- apparently- pump, but the unit is nowhere to be found. Will this or another product you carry be suitable to repalce the missing unit? Thank you.

A     Answered on 2/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello Dan- The Hayward Blu In-ground Suction Swimming Pool Cleaner, w/Hoses is a suction side cleaner, it will not work with the auxiliary pump that you have. Suction cleaners have to be controlled by the main pump. Your Polaris is a pressure side cleaner, so it uses that pump to push and move it throughout the pool. Here is an article that might help clarify this for you: http://www.inyopools.com/blog/do-i-have-a-suction-or-a-pressure-side-cleaner/

Does the Hayward Blue cleans the walls and steps in my in ground pool. If so how good. Does it clean up any Algae build up?

A     Answered on 1/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The Hayward Blu pool cleaner will climb the walls in your plaster finish pool. There is not a pool cleaner that will do stairs very well due to the sharp angles, so they will still need to be brushed from time to time. Algae build-up is a sign of a chemical imbalance in your pool. You would want to address that with an algae treatment. Pool cleaners and vacuums should only be utilized for the clean-up and removal of debris in your pool. The Hayward Blu is a solid and reliable cleaner.

I notice there are 2 fewer lengths of vac hose with this one. Are they using a cheaper hose that coils in cold weather.

A     Answered on 1/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

No, This is your standard size hose. Only coils up if you store it that way.

Way is my hose constantly getting tangled ?

A     Answered on 6/11/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

This pool cleaner has a gearing system that is designed to spin the hose in one direction and then in the opposite direction. If this Gear Box Assembly has failed, then that could be the cause of your hose tangling. You can always view our How To Repair a Hayward Navigator or Pool Vac Ultra Pool Cleaner on our website to assist you if you like.

A     Answered on 6/6/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The Hayward Blu Cleaner works on all pool surfaces including gunite, concrete, vinyl and fiberglass. If your cleaner has difficulty climbing on vinyl or fiberglass surfaces, you can purchase the Cork Pod Shoes separately. This cleaner comes with 32ft of hose so make sure that your pool dimensions will work for this cleaner.

A     Answered on 5/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes you could use the Hayward Blue Cleaner in place of the in floor pop up heads and yes the cleaner just plugs into the skimmer. If you had the pop up heads in the up position when you ran the cleaner then the cleaner would get stuck on the pop up heads, so you would not want to run both systems at the same time.

I had an old pro navigator..previously replaced inside mechanism.Decided to purchase new navigator.

Written on 6/13/2017 by Guest

1. Took off hose.
2. Replaced old hose...made certain to fill hose with water before connecting to side wall outlet.
3. Simply connected hose to navigator. In beginning cleaner had air inside so I had to hold under water to allow air to escape.
4. Adjusted movement of unit with water dials neat to pump.
