The 2x Suction PoolCleaner™ uses your existing pump and filter for power. This cleaner plugs into either your designated suction port or the skimmer. The 2x is ideal for most average sized pools (6' Depth or Less).
Some of the features that make 2 Wheel POOLCLEANER™ unique:
SELF ADJUSTING TURBINE VANES
All the POOLCLEANER™ cleaners have the patented self-adjusting turbines, which maximizes the power from the water flow. This turbine is similar to a paddle wheel with blades that are adjustable. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to still move at low suction and low pressure. In addition the folding vanes of the turbine allow for the easy passage of larger debris through the cleaner.
The 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ has an internal programmed steering system, that causes the left wheel to periodically reverse, allowing the POOLCLEANER™ to turn and then move into another direction. For the 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ there are five different programmed turns ranging from 90 to 450 degrees. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to cover not only the deep end, but also the shallow end. The POOLCLEANER™ has no problem with uneven surfaces or strange shapes. It won’t stick in a corner, or get hung up by a main drain.
ROBUST TIRE TREADS
One look and you will see that the patented tire treads give the POOLCLEANER™ better climbing ability and obstacle maneuverability. The tires come with tread wear markers that show you when to replace your tires. The front tires of the POOLCLEANER™ have humps (raised treads) that allow the POOLCLEANER™ to overcome any reasonable obstacles such as the main drain and uneven surfaces. This makes the POOLCLEANER™ ideal for all pool surfaces and shapes.
The POOLCLEANER™ has patented adjustable skirts that allow the cleaner to maintain optimal suction under the machine even when it encounters obstacles. When the POOLCLEANER™ encounters an obstacle one (or more) of the skirts will lift up (adjust) over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner.
Smooth or Slippery Pool Surfaces
Optional replacement tires are available for 2-Wheel and 4-Wheel suction drive cleaners. Perfect for smooth or slippery pool surfaces such as: Glass Tile, Ceramic Tile & Fiberglass pools (tires are solid beige color and come as a pack of two). Beige Tape Tires - PVXH006HPK2
What all is included with the pool cleaner -- in addition to the 33' of hose?
The following items are included with PVN-20-0013.1 2X Suction POOLCLEANER 1 Regulator Valve and Water Gate 1 Hose Cone 9 Sections of Hose 1 Leader Hose 2 Snap On Floats
Will the PoolCleaner 2 Wheel or 4 Wheel Suction Cleaner climb my pool wall?
These cleaners may climb up a 1/4 of the way on the wall and will turn back down because of a flap mechanism on the wheel which helps it to keep from getting stuck and allows the cleaner to go in the reverse direction. Because this is a suction cleaner, it is only designed to clean the pool floor.
Do you carry a tune-up it for the 2 wheel Pool Cleaner?
Yes we do carry the tune up kit here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352046604.htm

Determined that our existing pool Vacuum needed to be replaced. Contacted our pool service provider who recommended INYO pool supplier. We searched their webside and identified the new pool vacuum we wanted. We placed an order online, which was easy to do. We were able to track the order until it arrival. We unpacked the product and put it to use right after we received our packaged product.

Bought this to replace my 4 y.o. Pool Cleaner. Old one finally bit the dust after 4+ years in the chlorinated pool. Time for the replacement. New hayward model seems to be basically the same as the original except it has 3 different sized debris throats. I put the largest on and it cleaned up what i couldnt easily net from hurricane Irma's mess (oak and bamboo leaves). I use with a leaf canister. Saw that hayward has a similar product aquanaut but i went with the tried and true.

I was skeptical when I first saw this little pool cleaner. We had used another expensive brand, and we were not really happy with it. This little guy goes everywhere. We're hoping this one will last longer because it is such a simple design, and cleans just as well as our previous pool cleaner.

This pool cleaner works great. I've had no problems with it. It will stop working once in awhile after being clogged with so many leaves and debris from all of our trees and landscape, but that's to be expected.
(5 out of 5 stars) Good cleaner
Reviewed By: Gene L. from Indio, CA ()
Pros: Easy setup, cleans efficiently
Easy to assemble and get working. I was able to use the existing suction port in the pool so I didn't have to mess around with the other optional fittings that came with the Cleaner. I had a Hayward Blu which lasted only 2 months after the warranty expired ! Hopefully I will have better luck with this Cleaner. If you buy from somewhere other than Inyo, make sure you get the "Next Generation" model, it has the "V" design on the suction side. Don't get stuck with the older version.

Pros: Easy set up
Received order in a very timely manner, easy to set up..its been running great! Picking up all sizes of debris effortlessly. I've had other suction side cleaners that struggled with cleaning up and constantly jammed the sweeper! This cleaner has been installed for 2 weeks now and continues to clean my pool with no problems.
(5 out of 5 stars) Best one out there
Reviewed By: Spring F. from Phoenix az ()
Pros: works as described and recommended by 2 different pool cleaning professionals
Cons: Wish it would come with the optional mouth pieces, by default its shipped with the medium.
Ive had 2 pool cleaners in 5 years and this one is the 3rd. I guess the saying 3rd times a charm is correct! This is by far the best cleaner out there.

Pros: Works well on rough surfaces.
We have an older pool that is getting very rough. We had a Baracudda that wore through in 18 months. So far this one is doing a very good job. It gets clogged up less than the Hayward. When it is running, the pool is nice and clean. Wish it climbed the walls better though.

Pros: No maint, few moving parts, no complicated calibration, works at low pump speeds
I'm not usually one to review items, positive or negative. However, this product just works so well and is made in the USA, so I wanted to give them a thumbs up. I have a 15000 gal, 16x32 vinyl inground pool, I run my pump VERY slow 24 hours per day, 50% suction going to skimmer, 50% to vacuum port, no bottom drain. I was worried that the vacume would not operate properly @ this decresed pump volume but the vacumme travels around the pool very slowly all day long picking up everything in its path. I'm in New Jersey and my pool has several large Oak and Pine trees that are constantly dropping debris in the pool which are generally sucked up first pass. I never bothered calibrating the pump, I threw it in the pool in May, turned pump and chlorinator on and have not had to do any maint. this year. Travels up all slanted surfaces but not vertical surfaces.

Reviewed By: Steven G. from Westlake Village, CA ()
Pros: Does not get hung up in corners; great pool coverage
Cons: Does not go up vertically (walls)
Been using the competitor Kreepy Krauly for years but it always seemed to get stuck in corners or near the pool steps. My pool guy told me they had been testing The Pool Cleaner for some time with great results so I bought this from Inyo. After several weeks of use I can say our pool stays cleaner and this unit never hangs up. It's terrific so far! As for product life until mechanical failure, time will tell. If I get 4 or 5 years of trouble free use, that would be terrific. Lots of gears so we'll see.

Pros: large self driven wheels
Now this is the greatest cleaner I've ever owned. The large self driven wheels will get it over about anything. My old pool cleaners always got stuck and I would have to go and give them a push to get them started again. This one just goes and goes.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great Cleaner but read the directions!
Reviewed By: Jeffrey V. from Phoenix, AZ ()
Pros: Few moving parts, efficient
Cons: Need to adjust pool intake/outtake lines carefully to get best performance
After owning and running this vacuum for over two weeks the bottom and sides of my pool have never looked better. I have the two wheel version, and I plug the unit without the flow adjuster directly into my vacuum line in the pool. I have also turned off the main central drain of the pool so that I get superior suction to my vacuum. Be sure to read the directions carefully and adjust your pool lines as needed for good or better performance. My pool is approximately 21,000 gallons, 5.5 ft at the middle and deepest located in suburban Phoenix, AZ.

What a great cleaner. I've only had it for a week now and my pool is much cleaner already than when i was using one of the ordinary pool vacs. it gets up the walls alot higher and moves at a much faster pace.

Reviewed By: Deborah S. from Gilbert, AZ ()
Pros: Great coverage cleaning
Cons: Hard to assemble hoses
I love this vac. Have used a navigator for 18 years and decided to try something new. This vac looks great and works even better. It even cleaned in the hard to reach areas near the steps and curved areas. Easy to install except for connecting the hoses together. Even after getting them wet they were very hard to connect together. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others.

Reviewed By: Dr David from Phoenix, AZ ()
Pros: Fast, unstoppable, complete cleaning coverage.
Cons: Doesn't climb the walls yet regardless of settings and adjustments.
I have had The Pool Cleaner for one week. It was easy to set up with the very clear instructions. It replaced a 2-year old Pentair Kreepy Krauley Sand Shark that was nothing but constant trouble. It had been rebuilt twice in two years, but still wouldn't work correctly. The Pool Cleaner seems to be unstoppable. Only issue is that it does not climb the walls of my PebleTec pool regardless of the degree of suction, but tech support told me that as soon as the tires wear a bit, it will start climbing. I am pleased with its performance so far.

We are looking forward to seeing how this will hold up, but it seems well built and I will come back to review more after I use it for a while.
(5 out of 5 stars) Pool cleaner - two wheel model
Reviewed By: atnum01 from Fountain Hills, AZ ()
Pros: Simple design, easy to install
Cons: None so far
The PoolCleaner was easy to install and adjust. Instruction guide explained everything clearly. I used my 3-way valve to add a bit more suction to the cleaner and got the wheel revolutions into the 11-13 rpm range recommended. It's now cruising around the pool happily sucking up everything just at it should. I'm hoping the relative simplicity of its design will outperform the mechanical nightmare of the Barracuda MX-8 it is replacing.

Pros: does not get stuck on corners or steps
Cons: turbine did get stuck once for no reason
Excellent pool cleaner. I bought it two weeks ago and my pool has never been as clean as it is now. The pool cleaner never gets stuck on the spots that my old creepy crawly would. It did get jammed on its own gear the first 4 minutes after dropping it in the water but was able to open it up very simple and unjam it by aligning the turbine and it has worked perfect ever since that.

Pros: Sucks everything so fast and effortless
Cons: Can't think of any
Owned several pool cleaners and this is by far the best! Also Inyo Pools had this for the best price on the internet and great shipping. I could not be more satisfied. Watching as it sucked up all the leaves from the bottom of my pool so fast I was amazed. You have to clean your pump filter a lot as this will clean up the mess major fast. I need to buy an extra leaf catcher now and I will be buying it from Inyo Pools. Great cleaner!
