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

A: The only difference between the Pool Vac 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 is more rounded. Both cleaners use the exact same internal compnents 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 performs a little better in the corners of the pool.

Will the Hayward Pool Vac XL work if my pool has tile?

For pools with tile, Hayward recommends adding the ceramic pod shoes to the concrete model

What is the difference between the vinyl/fiberglass and the concrete version?

A  Answered on 1/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

James, The difference between the two versions are the vinyl/fiberglass pod shoes. The concrete version has concrete pod shoes.

Does this vac clean the sides and steps of the pool also? The rebate on your site has expired. Will you offer another rebate or military discount? This pool is concrete but I am considering changing it to vinyl later.

A  Answered on 3/18/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Sabrena - The Pool Vac XL is designed to climb most walls. It may have issues if there is a 90° wall with no slope. Same thing goes for the steps. We have seen them clean steps in some pools but not others. Click Here for current rebate. You could order the concrete model now and then switch the shoes when you convert to vinyl.

Both models are the same, just the body style is different.  So its whichever one you like better.
