Is there an attachment that will allow me to use the hose that comes with the mx8 and attach to a standard pool vacuum head so i can target a specific area. I believe the attachment piece is for 1 1/4" hose. This way I don't have to buy a separate hose

A  Answered on 9/1/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello Jay.   The Leaf Catcher Hose Adapter R0533300 will attach to a standard pool vacuum head and connect to the twist-lock style hose provided with the MX8.      Baracuda Leaf Catcher Hose Adapter (W70449) - R0533300

Which one is the better one. The MX8 elite or the MX8 and do they have a rebate with them.

A  Answered on 6/12/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

The MX8 Elite is the higher rated of the two cleaners. As for rebates, you will need to contact Jandy/Zodiac directly for current rebate information as we no longer sell their whole goods.

I have a large pool and need a 50 ft house is that possible?

A  Answered on 7/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, The cleaner only comes with 36 ft of hose. You will need to purchase additional hose sections. Be sure to make sure that your pool pump is strong enough to power the cleaner.

I bought an Mx8 from you and so far I have 4 of my hoses coming apart is it because they are poor quality or some other reason

A  Answered on 4/10/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The quality of the hoses are usually good, but the water chemistry will eat them up.

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?

A  Answered on 3/14/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

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.

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.

A  Answered on 6/23/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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.

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?

A  Answered on 10/18/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The MX-8 pool cleaner has a back up feature which ensures that it will not get stuck on main drains.

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.

A  Answered on 8/6/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The best suction cleaner we have found for leaves and debris is the Barracuda MX8 cleaner, we would also suggest a leaf canister here Thanks for the great question.

Could you tell me the the length of the warranty on the MX8?

A  Answered on 1/16/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The MX8 comes with a 1 Year Manufacturer Defects Warranty.
