What would you recommend, I have a 15/30 outdoor gunite pool that collects a substantial amount of leaves on a daily basis. Cleaning is a pain, which pool cleaner does the best for leaves and various rather large debris? We have a substantial amount of trees around the pool.
The best suction cleaner we have found for leaves and debris is the Barracuda MX8 cleaner, we would also suggest a leaf canister here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/01300001003964.htm Thanks for the great question.
We have a retrofit main drain, and our current pool vacuum constantly gets stuck on the drain. Our pool is like a bowl, so the natural slope is toward the drain. Will this product get stuck on the retrofit drains?
The MX-8 pool cleaner has a back up feature which ensures that it will not get stuck on main drains.
My Baracuda MX8 suction portion is turning around in circles alot. I just replaced the black rubber treads and all seems tight. Is it time to get a new one or are there repair options available thru Inyo or do you have recommendations for the San Diego CA area.
Al, You can take your cleaner to an authorize Zodiac dealer to have the cleaner inspected. It could be the Drive Shaft Assembly or the Side A or B Directional Control Device, which ever side is having the problem. Depends on what they find and the cost to repair whether it would be time to replace it.
I bought this during the rebate offer, but I was not given a Promo Code. Can you send me the Promo Code so that I can submit my rebate?
Hello Steve- I pulled up your order and had it sent to your e-mail. We do not have a Unique promo code for your rebate and unfortunately, it looks like you used a reward code on that order which would make you ineligible for the rebate.
(4 out of 5 stars) Sparkling Clean Pool
Reviewed By: David B. from Tucson, AZ ()
Pros: Goes everywhere in my pool
Cons: Citrus leaves clog the gears
I have been using this for about 4 weeks now and I am very impressed with the MX8. I've always used a Baracuda G3/G4 and they seem to prefer the deep end of the pool. The MX8 goes everywhere except the steps. The paddles on the bottom of the MX8 do a great job of sweeping the pool of dirt and small leaves. The pool is sparkling clean now. Large thick leaves like citrus leaves get stuck in the MX8 causing it to stop cleaning, but are easily removed. I have some concerns about how long all the moving parts will last compared to a G4. The new MX8 hose connects differently than standard Baracuda or Creepy hoses, which is a problem. The water flow meter that came with the MX8 connects to the standard hose, not the new hose! I also had to kludge together both types of hoses to use my inline leaf catcher since it only attaches to standard hose.

Pros: Easy to use, cleans well, light, & made to last.
Cons: None really
I have owned my in-ground vinyl lined pool for 16 years. This is my 1st automatic vacuum. I research everything before I buy and it was no different with the MX8. The Barracuda MX8 had mostly great reviews and now I see why. It really does a great job cleaning, even up the walls and in the curved edges. It's amazing to watch the 1st several times. Now I get it going and forget about it. What a huge time saver!
