Does this cleaner climb the sides of the pool?

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

This cleaner is not designed to climb walls. That rule goes for most, if not all above ground pool cleaners.

What do i put my sand filter on? backwash or filter when using this product.

A  Answered on 5/15/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

The Hayward Aquabug 500 would require your pool be in filter when want it to clean. If you put it on backwash it will let the water out of your pool and if left unattended could drain the pool.

How long will it take to completely clean a 28' round pool?

A  Answered on 6/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Tom, The length of time it will take to clean greatly depends on how dirty the pool is and the strength of the pump and filter. I would say on relatively clean pool , 2-6 hours.
