Product Description

This Hayward Navigator is for Concrete pools
The Hayward Navigator sets the standard in high-performance cleaning for in-ground pools of all types and sizes. This newly designed hybrid version of the ever popular Pool Vac automatic cleaner features many new product enhancements, more durable components, plus a 2 year warranty. Simple to install, Navigator features the exclusive SmartDrive programmed steering which assures that virtually all pools will be cleaned in only 2-3 hours. Quiet and attractive, Navigator is the intelligent choice in automatic cleaners for smart pool professionals everywhere.

Add a leaf canister to your Hayward pool cleaner so debris does not collect in your pump basket. The leaf canister fits between 2 sections of the pool cleaners hose, debris is now collected in the leaf canister rather than your pump basket.

Q: What is the difference between the Hayward Pool Vac Ultra and the Hayward Navigator?

The only difference between the Pool Vac Ultra and the Navigator is the shape of the head of the cleaner. The head of the Navigator is square or flat and the Pool Vac Ultra is more rounded. Both cleaners use the exact same internal components and the same hose, so if you ever need to replace parts in the future the parts for both cleaners would be the same. Some people say the rounded design on the Pool Vac Ultra performs a little better in the corners of the pool.

Q: What is the difference between the standard Hayward Navigator and the Hayward Navigator Desert Model?

The Hayward Navigator Desert Model is used in parts of the country where your swimming pool receives a lot of sand. We ship most of the Desert Models to southwestern states like Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. The only difference between the two cleaners is that the Desert Model handles sand much better than the standard model.

Tips on Hose Requirements:
A simple rule of thumb is to measure from the skimmer (or dedicated suction line) to the furthest point in the pool, then add two (2)extra hose lenghths.
For example: a 16’ x 32’ rectangular pool will normally take 8 - 10 lengths of hose, depending on depth and skimmer placement.

Tips on Vacuum Requirements:
The necessary vacuum is dictated by the amount of hose utilized. Allow 1 inch of vacuum for every length of hose used.
For example: The pool in the example would need between 8 - 10 inches of vacuum for proper operation.

Comes With...
  • 40 ft. of Hose
  • Vacuum Gauge
  • Skimmer Cone Installation Video

I need to replace the wings and shoes of my Hayward cleaner. Which kit do I need?

A  Answered on 5/31/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

We would recommend you purchase a tune up kit (W300, W330, or W331) for your Hayward Navigator or Pool Vac Ultra. Which kit you purchase depends on what kind of pool you have, concrete or vinyl.
