Part # 896584000-013
Warranty 1 Year
The 2x Suction PoolCleaner™ uses your existing pump and filter for power. This cleaner plugs into either your designated suction port or the skimmer. The 2x is ideal for most average sized pools (6' Depth or Less).
Some of the features that make 2 Wheel POOLCLEANER™ unique:
SELF ADJUSTING TURBINE VANES
All the POOLCLEANER™ cleaners have the patented self-adjusting turbines, which maximizes the power from the water flow. This turbine is similar to a paddle wheel with blades that are adjustable. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to still move at low suction and low pressure. In addition the folding vanes of the turbine allow for the easy passage of larger debris through the cleaner.
The 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ has an internal programmed steering system, that causes the left wheel to periodically reverse, allowing the POOLCLEANER™ to turn and then move into another direction. For the 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ there are five different programmed turns ranging from 90 to 450 degrees. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to cover not only the deep end, but also the shallow end. The POOLCLEANER™ has no problem with uneven surfaces or strange shapes. It won’t stick in a corner, or get hung up by a main drain.
ROBUST TIRE TREADS
One look and you will see that the patented tire treads give the POOLCLEANER™ better climbing ability and obstacle maneuverability. The tires come with tread wear markers that show you when to replace your tires. The front tires of the POOLCLEANER™ have humps (raised treads) that allow the POOLCLEANER™ to overcome any reasonable obstacles such as the main drain and uneven surfaces. This makes the POOLCLEANER™ ideal for all pool surfaces and shapes.
The POOLCLEANER™ has patented adjustable skirts that allow the cleaner to maintain optimal suction under the machine even when it encounters obstacles. When the POOLCLEANER™ encounters an obstacle one (or more) of the skirts will lift up (adjust) over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner.
I have a 2-1/2 year old, 2-wheel "The Pool Cleaner" which I believe is dead (the blue wheels are "locked" and I see nothing inside jamming the mechanism). I removed the wheels, but it looks all clear inside. The black toothed drive is stuck on both sides, you can force it to turn, but it does not move. Any suggestions? Cost to repair? My pool is 35' x 15', irregular shapes, 3'-5.5'. If I decide to replace it, which is better: another "The Pool Cleaner" or the "Hayward Blu Cleaner?"
Chuck, It may be the steering assembly. This guide may help.
If ordered in the next day, how long would it take to get to Phoenix.
We can only really approximate during this portion of the swim season without expediting shipping but I would say approximately 2-5 business days.
How does this compare to the Hayward in ground Navigator Pool Vac?
Hi, Jim. Between the Pool Cleaner and Hayward Navigator, The Pool Cleaner wins because they are wheel driven allowing for better maneuverability.
How long does it usually take to ship a pool cleaner to CA.?
Lead time for this cleaner is approximately 5-7 business days to California.
Does this vacuum come with new hoses?
Yes, this cleaner comes with approximately 35 foot worth of hoses.
When using this cleaner can you also have a plastic solar cover on the pool at the same time? Thanks Jesse
Good day Jesse, the cover can affect the performance of the cleaner. The cover should be taken off when the cleaner is running.
Is this the next generation one ?
Yes, that is the next generation cleaner.
what is the warranty on this item
That cleaner has a one year warranty.
Does the cleaner work the sides of the pool had one that would crawl up the sides and clean
Hi, These cleaners can crawl up the walls if it has enough suction, traction and the design or layout of pool.
I recently purchased 2 a wheel "pool cleaner" from Inyo and noticed the last couple days that the cleaner has started hovering approx 3-4 feet above the pool bottom. Can you tell me how to fix this problem? Thanks.
Hello Gerald- There are a couple things to look for in this case. The first would be insufficient suction, I would just make sure there is enough suction for the cleaner to move and stay on the pool bottom. The second would be to check the position of the hose floats. And finally, make sure your jets are not pointing straight up.
I have a hayword phoenix. It is not moving. I have checked the hose, the unit, filters, changed the pool pump suction/speed. any suggestions?
Hi, Jen. Based on everything you said you've done I would recommend rechecking the suction to the cleaner and making sure the filter is cleaned. You can also try isolating the suction line to see if the unit moves. You can also try calling Hayward's Tech Support line at 908.355.7995 for assistance.
where can I get parts for the pool cleaner
Hi, We do have replacement parts for this unit, all available parts are listed on the Poolvergnuegen Suction Cleaner 2X & 4X Parts page.
How far does the hose extend? My lap pool is 30 ft. by 12 ft. with a depth of 5.5 ft. at it's deepest.
The two wheel cleaner includes 9 of the 4' Vacuum Hose and one 4' Leader Hose this will provide approximately 40' of hose length. The Pool Cleaner 4 Wheel Cleaner - 896584000-020 includes 11 Vacuum Hose and 1 Leader Hose providing approximately 48' of hose length. You may click here to view Owner/ Installation Manual.
I have a 2 wheel phoenix pool cleaner and I have to replace a tire tread where can I get one
The tire tread for that cleaner is part number 3248-22.
My pools about 28x15 and 5.5 deep at deepest, 3 at shallow end. 2 wheel or 4?
The 2 wheel cleaner works for pools up to 6ft deep so the 2 wheel cleaner would be fine for your pool.
Hi, It says there are special wheels for a Vinyl lined pool. Do these come with it or are they sold separate? Thanks
The tires for vinyl pools are not included with the cleaner. Here is a link to the FRONT TIRE KIT - Jacuzzi Tracker -2X & 4X (2 IN A KIT, BLUE) (896584000-075) to use in a vinyl pool. Please note the tires are sold in a quantity of two so you would need to order 1 set for the 2-wheel model or 2 sets for the 4-wheel model.
I saw that this is recommend for in ground pools, but not vinyl lined. I have a in ground vinyl lined pool. Would this work or would you recommend something else?
Hi. Jesse. This cleaner can be used on a vinyl lined pool however, you will need to purchase special tires for a vinyl/fiberglass pools p/n 896584000-075.
Does the cleaner continue to operate even when the Hayward pump shuts off?
Hi. This cleaner will not continue to operate when the pool pump shuts off.
My pool is 30' x 15' and about 6 1/4 feet deep at the deep end. Do I need a 2 wheel or 4 wheel
Hello Jonathan, I would stick with a 4 wheeler because you are going on a 6 1/2 depth and with the 2 wheeler it is going on a max of 6' depth.
In researching the Poolvergnuegen (The Pool Cleaner 2X) I came across a 1st and 2nd Generation depending on model year. Is this product sold by INYOPools 2nd generation?
Yes, the one we sell is the 2nd generation cleaner.
I'm ready to buy, but undecided on whether I need the 2 or 4 wheel version. My pool is about 45 x 18 feet deep end is 6.5 feet. Basically rectangle, but does have some unique designed corners that tiered. I've used the navigator with reasonable success, but have the same complaints as most. Appreciate fast response!
Considering the length and depth of your pool, we would recommend The Pool Cleaner 4 Wheel Cleaner - 896584000-020.
Can you operate the pool's pump (which includes the skimmer) without having the 2-wheel unit hooked/plugged into the wall outlet. Does the wall outlet need to be blocked if so is there piece that will attach to the wall outlet to block off the hole when the hose is not plugged in??? Thanks Don K.
Hello Don. You can absolutely operate the pool without the pool cleaner attached. It is recommend that if you are using a wall connection, you have a Vac Lock on it when it is not in use. i would recommend the Vac Lock Wg (w400bwhp).
Just purchased a Pool Cleaner (8965840013) from you , to replace my Navigator. Sand filter failed and put sand in pool. The Navigator bearings got sand in them and failed.There is still some sand in the pool after repair of filter. Will Pool Cleaner clean up the sand or will it also be affected? Tried vacuuming as much as possible , but am sure some small amount will remain. Don;t want to put Pool Cleaner in if it will also be affected by the sand. What is best solution to get id of all sand.
The Pool Cleaner will be able to handle the sand. It doesn't have the bearings that the Navigator has for the sand to get in there and lock the bearings up.
Do I pay sales tax if I live in CA. Will order on line. Thanks.
There wouldn't be any sales taxes and free shipping.
will the 2 wheel cleaner (89658400013)work for vinyl lined pools
That's going to be for an inground pool, wouldn't use it on vinyl lined pools.
The front protectors on our pool cleaner broke off. We are uncertain how this happened. Other wise the cleaner is working well. Does a new cleaner come with the hose and is there any type of trade in value. Thanks Ray
Hi, The cleaner does come with the hose and there is no trade in value.
Is the the "next generation" version that came out about a year ago?
Hi, This is the "Next Generation" model.
I have a rectangle shape pool and other robots get stuck in corners and straight walls. Is this product good for my shape pool?
Hi, This pool cleaner can be used in a rectangle shape pool and with it's new and improved steering system can free itself if it gets stuck in the corners.
We have one of these that worked great for years. Now it gets stuck in the steps every five minutes and is does not move all day unless I move it manually. I asked the pool guy and he said it is work out. Is there a repair or upgrade kits that I can replace the worn parts?
Hi Randy, There is not a rebuild kit for this unit, you can either replace the parts needed to replace the entire cleaner with this new and improved model.
For "The Pool Cleaner", where does the dirt and leaves go? We have a Polaris pool sweep now and it has a bag that catch's everything. Thanks, John
The leaves would go into the pump basket in theory but you can view the leaf canisters here for some options on using one in between 2 of the hoses near the line that the cleaner plugs into.
I have the Pool Cleaner. It tends to clean on one side of the pool always. Can you explain why and what is needed to make it rotate the entire pool area? Thank you, Vickie Harris
Hi Vickie, There are several things that can cause the cleaner to only clean one side of the pool. I would recommend reviewing The Pool Cleaner Owner's Manual for troubleshooting tips.
Is this the updated poolcleaner with the ball bearing wheels?
Hi Daniel, This unit is the "Next Generation" model by Hayward.
HAS THERE BEEN ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS VACUUM GETTING HUNG UP ON THE FLOOR DRAINS?
suction from pool motor and filter is good, pool cleaner does not move very much. what do I do?
Hi, You will have to take the cleaner apart to see if there is anything preventing it from moving.
Does the unit come with the interchangeable throats?
Jay,No, this cleaner does not come with interchangeable throats. To view all the included components, please review The Pool Cleaner manual. (page 3)
Is this model the original or the "next generation" model?
Gerry- The 896584000-013 The Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel Cleaner is going to be the latest "Next Generation" model.
My Pool Cleaner has lost its mind. All it wants to do is go in circles and twists the hose up. How do I fix the internal brain to quit turning?
Hi Don, You can try a few things: (1) Lay the hoses on you deck in the sun for a few hours (2) Check the tires (3) or replace all the gears.
My cleaners suction is great, but the unit won't move, I've try rd everything. Any ideas? Thanks
Yes you can always call the manufacturer at (866) 772-2100 for additional tech support/troubleshooting. If it is a new cleaner then they may be able to deem it a defective unit. If so please have the contact information of the tech that confirms that then provide that information to the retailer that you purchased the unit with.
does it climb walls and stairs ?
Manny,The Pool Cleaner will only climb part of the way up your wall. It will not fully climb your wall.
my pool is just a bit deeper than 6 foot in the center and 4 foot on ends, do I need the 2 wheel or the 4 wheel model?
Hi LeRoy, I would recommend The Pool Cleaner 4 Wheel Cleaner for your size pool.
My pool is 8 feet deep would you recommend the 2 wheel cleaner?
if i have an in ground pool cleaner, what would be the benefits of having the pool cleaner 2 wheel cleaner,,, also would it clear the in ground nossels that pop up.
Hi, Daniel. If you have an In-Floor Cleaning System you are not required to use an alternate vacuum. I cannot guarantee the vacuum will clear the pop-up heads. It may, as it has a unique design to help guide the cleaner over uneven surfaces and strange shapes. If the In-Floor cleaning system is operating properly you should not need an additional automatic pool cleaner. You may keep a manual vacuum and hose on hand for quick clean-ups. This style allows you to have control of the movement of the vacuum.
Is the 4-wheel "The Pool Cleaner" new or refurbished?
Hello, Todd. The Pool Cleaner 4 Wheel Cleaner PART#896584000-020 is a new pool cleaner. Any of our refurbished or clearance pool cleaners can be found on page http://www.inyopools.com/clearance_pool_cleaners.aspx

Hi Donna, The Front Tire Kit W/ Super Humps (896584000-143) would be the tires that can be used with a Pebble Tech surface.
How do you stop the pool cleaner from climbing the walls
Hi Fred, Unfortunately you can not stop this pool cleaner from climbing the walls. You can try reducing the suction power but that will reduce the cleaner's overall performance.
Are the hoses included with the 2X pool cleaner?
Hello the 2 Wheel Pool Cleaner comes with 33 feet of hose.
If you have warranty problems during first year or after do you have to send unit back or do you have repair sites?
Hi, You would have to contact Poolvergnuegen for any warranty issues. They have do have places where you can take the unit to be repaired.

My pool is about 15000 gallons it goes to 8 feet in one end its a small pool Wich cleaner will you recommend 2 or 4 wheel

Mike, The Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel Cleaner is the "Next Generation" by Hayward and it does have the upgraded wheel bearings.
We have the Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel and the hose near the cleaner has split. Where can we get a new hose for this part of the cleaner? Is it easy to replace? Thanks for your help
Hi Pauline, We do have replacement hoses for The Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel Cleaner. We have the replacement Leader Hose W/ Grey Cuff (suction Only) (896584000-211), which connects directly to the pool cleaner and we also have the replacemant Vacuum Hose 1 Meter, Suction Only (896584000-228) which will connect to the leader hose. They are sold in 3ft sections, so its easy as disconnection and reconnecting the hose.
why remove during bi-weekly shock application
It is recommended to remove during shock treatment because after consistently leaving the cleaner in during chlorine spikes, that could break down the plastic parts of the cleaner including the hoses.
I have the cleaner . It works well but often goes above the water line when climbing the pool wall. When that happens it makes terrible sucking sounds. What adjustment can i make to prevent this?
Hi Ron, You have to reduce the water pressure on your cleaner suction line. This is done by one of three ways depending on your setup. See our guide on "How To Operate The PoolCleaner" for more information.
can the 2X be used in above ground pool
Jimmy, The Pool Cleaner 2 Wheel Cleaner is not recommend for an above ground pool, you can choose from these Above Ground Pool Cleaners.

Vince, This cleaner can suck up algae as long as it's not stained, at that point some brushing may be required.
Does this have the straight bottom underneath the skirt? Or does it have the v-shaped bottom? Also, does it say "next generation" on the back? Thank you!
I just spoke to our vendor and they confirmed that the bottom is V-Shaped and that all of them say " Next Generation "
Does this come with any hoses?
The cleaner will come with 33' of hose.
How long is the warranty on this item?
Hello Jim - The warranty is one year.
Have you had experience with this product and the Baker Hydro filtration system? If so, what were the results?
Jim, We have customers with sand filtration system purchase this cleaner, and it works as intended too. Are you having problems or think you will have problems if you purchase this unit?
I have overall pool 8" deep what do I need 4 well ??
Hello Steven - An 8' deep pool would require the 4 Wheel Pool Cleaner.
Will this unit perform in a fiberglass pool?
The manufacturer has advised us that the tires that come with the cleaner are mainly designed for concrete/plaster/gunite but can be used on a fiberglass pool. However, the 896584000-075 tire kit will work better on vinyl/fiberglass.
I have a plaster 8' diving pool. Will this Pool Cleaner work?
Hello Sharon - An 8' deep pool would require the 4-Wheel Pool Cleaner.
Does the Pool Cleaner come with the long hose to hook to the filter?
Hello Sharon - The cleaner comes with 33' of hose.
Do you have this model available in black?
We do carry the Dark Gray PoolCleaner 2 Wheel. This model is typically used for dark bottom pools.
How many gpm are required to operate the two wheel Poolvergnuegen model?? I am trying to size my pump and piping. Thanks, Bob
This product requires 22 -25 gallons per minute, a minimum of 1 ½ inch plumbing throughout the pool. Optimum wheel speed is 11-13 rpm, per the manual (I am assuming you have a suction side cleaner!). GPM will be important, but you will have to adjust for proper wheel speed anyway.
What is the warranty on the 2 Wheel Pool Cleaner?
Hello Bill - The 2 Wheel Pool Cleaner has a one year warranty.
Hows does this cleaner work with a Pebble Tec pool?
The 2 Wheel Pool Cleaner will work great in a Pebble Tec pool.
My pool is a 10,000 gal. deepest point is 6 feet do I need a 4 wheel pool cleaner or will a 2 wheeler be good enough?
The 2 wheeled cleaner would be just fine since the gallons are perfect for that cleaner. Also, the max depth the cleaner is "best" for is 6 feet, so you are good for that as well. If you get lots of leaves might I suggest a leaf catcher that gets placed between two of the sections of hose. http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02201321001425.htm This would help keep the larger debris from clogging up the pump basket.
Will this work in a vinyl pool?
This cleaner, part number 896584000-013, is safe/good for vinyl pools up to 6 feet deep.
Is the 2 wheel Pool Cleaner that you sell the original or Next Generation model? I prefer the original which I understand will climb the walls while the NG will not.
Thank you for contacting Inyo Pools. The cleaners are the next generation version. Neither model of the 2 Wheel cleaner are not designed to climb the pool walls.
We have a 40 foot long by 20 foot wide above ground pool, would the 2 Wheel or the 4 Wheel Pool Cleaner work better than the other? The pool is about 4 1/2 ft deep. Does the 4 wheel come with 33 foot of hose too or longer? Can more house be ordered?
For a pool under 6' deep we suggest the 2 wheel Pool Cleaner. The 4 wheel cleaner is for pools deeper than 6'. The 4 wheel cleaners come with 33' of hose and you may purchase additonal hoses for both here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352028024.htm
My pool is 8 feet deep. Can I use this cleaner on it?
No. According to the manufacture they only recommend this cleaner for pools up to six feet deep.
Do you carry a tune-up it for the 2 wheel Pool Cleaner?
Yes we do carry the tune up kit here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352046604.htm
Why would I need a 4 wheel PoolCleaner.
The 4 wheel PoolCleaner is used in larger pools to provide extra traction for pulling the longer hoses.
Will the PoolCleaner 2 Wheel or 4 Wheel Suction Cleaner climb my pool wall?
These cleaners may climb up a 1/4 of the way on the wall and will turn back down because of a flap mechanism on the wheel which helps it to keep from getting stuck and allows the cleaner to go in the reverse direction. Because this is a suction cleaner, it is only designed to clean the pool floor.
What all is included with the pool cleaner -- in addition to the 33' of hose?
The following items are included with PVN-20-0013.1 2X Suction POOLCLEANER 1 Regulator Valve and Water Gate 1 Hose Cone 9 Sections of Hose 1 Leader Hose 2 Snap On Floats
How many feet of hose come with this cleaner?
The total length of hose is 33 feet.
(5 out of 5 stars) Best Suction side Cleaner out there!
Reviewed By: Stephen J. from Glendale, AZ ()
Pros: Good value, fewer parts to replace, full coverage in less time.
Cons: none yet
After over 20 years of using a Hayward navigator (in all its variations - really the same machine), I finally got sick of replacing a myriad of parts which just kept getting more expensive but no better [I now have an attic with no less than 3 Hayward Navigators in it]. Knew I didn't want a Barracuda as I've had too many friends buy them to replace Haywards and they just don't cover the pool well. Did the online research thing and came up the "The Pool Cleaner". Thought I'd give suction side cleaners one more try before I spent the big bucks on a robotic cleaner. I have had the cleaner about 6 months now and am very pleased with it. It cleans every bit as well as my Haywards and was very easy to set up and calibrate for speed. With the Hayward, I ran my pump 8 hours per night, every night in summer and still had problems if there was a big storm. The Pool Cleaner runs 6 hours per night and I've had a clean pool after all but the worst monsoon storms here in Phoenix (15,000 gal pool). Only once did The Pool Cleaner have a glitch... after a storm a small twig got stuck in the rotating collar on the top of the machine and caused the hose to wind itself into a knot. This was easily fixed by removing the top cover with 2 screws. So far the impeller has 'eaten' everything is has encountered. The wheel treads show very little wear for all the running time in a pebble sheen pool and their cost will be much less than the feet and/or wings on a Hayward. Why did I buy from INYOpools? They had the best price! Delivery was fast and The Pool Cleaner, hoses, and manual arrived in one box pretty much ready to go. If this machine continues to run as it has this summer I will be very pleased. One more thing that really sold me on this machine as opposed to the Hayward. On all new pools, drain covers must be the raised type for safety. My Hayward constantly hung up on those covers to the point that I installed a pair of old flush covers just so it would cover the entire pool! The Pool Cleaner just pushes right over the raised covers without complaint.

I was skeptical when I first saw this little pool cleaner. We had used another expensive brand, and we were not really happy with it. This little guy goes everywhere. We're hoping this one will last longer because it is such a simple design, and cleans just as well as our previous pool cleaner.

This pool cleaner works great. I've had no problems with it. It will stop working once in awhile after being clogged with so many leaves and debris from all of our trees and landscape, but that's to be expected.

Reviewed By: Gene L. from Indio, CA ()
Pros: Easy setup, cleans efficiently
Easy to assemble and get working. I was able to use the existing suction port in the pool so I didn't have to mess around with the other optional fittings that came with the Cleaner. I had a Hayward Blu which lasted only 2 months after the warranty expired ! Hopefully I will have better luck with this Cleaner. If you buy from somewhere other than Inyo, make sure you get the "Next Generation" model, it has the "V" design on the suction side. Don't get stuck with the older version.
