Product Description


The big whale in pool cleaners!

Pool cleaning just got better with Hayward’s newest and cutest above-ground cleaning couple, Diver Dave™ and Wanda the Whale™. Both provide easy, trouble-free operation without the need to empty or replace debris bags. Using our patented SmartDrive® programmed steering system, These above-ground pool cleaners won’t miss a spot – gobbling up everything from microscopic dust to larger debris. And they do so automatically, giving you and your family more time to enjoy your pool.

Plus, Wanda the Whale improves water circulation by acting as a moving main drain, pulling water from the bottom of your pool as it moves. Your water circulates and your pool stays cleaner – without the overuse of chemical sanitizers.

In the tradition of the AquaBug, the new Hayward family of above-ground pool cleaners are designed to clean the bottom of all sizes and shapes of above-ground/on-ground pools - automatically. These attractive little fellows operate off the pool`s existing filtration system and feature our exclusive SmartDrive® program steering so it won`t miss a spot.

Wanda the Whale and Diver Dave will keep your pool clean, so you'll never see a need to manually clean your pool again. Let them Swim In Your Pool Today!

How many feet of hose come with this cleaner and how do I determine if I need extra hose?

A  Answered on 7/27/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This cleaner comes with 32' of hose, the hoses come in 4' sections. A simple rule of thumb is to measure from the skimmer (or dedicated suction line) to the farthest point in the pool then add two (2) extra hose lengths. If you determine you need additional hose you may purchase the hose sections here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02201321001333.htm

I have an inground molded fiberglass pool in an irregular shape, close to being an hourglass shape? It is 6 1/2 feet deep in the deepest end and also has a narrow shelf running around the deeper end will this cleaner work in my pool?

A  Answered on 2/26/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Katy - I would not recommend the model 900 for your pool. We would recommend the Hayward Blu. The Blu cleaner comes with shoes for a concrete surface. You could order the fiberglass shoes separately.

Hi Lisa, If you have a metal wall Intex Pool then the Wanda the Whale pool cleaner would work on your pool.
