Pros: Works as it should
Cons: INYO's price, hose connections seems weak
This works well I just wish it came with a finer mesh bag. Lets a LOT of debris through. I worry about the hose connection breaking before long.
(5 out of 5 stars) Awesome Device for Leaf Vacuuming

I wish I had bought this years ago! Used with garden hose with good success, but I'm looking forward to using it with my booster pump line for a little more suction and easier movability...garden hose's weight wants to tilt the vacuum head off the pool surface. Definitely worth the price.
(3 out of 5 stars) Worth the price but heed my experience.

The orange colored hose quick-connect broke with the first use. It's not replaceable from Inyo. Go to Home Depot and get a Melnor Quick Connect set in the garden department. It's only 5 bucks and is much sturdier and works well. The one that came with the cleaner is junk. Tips--There were no instructions with mine so by trial and error I learned: 1- Too much water pressure blows the quick connect off the cleaner. When I turn my faucet on about 1/3 it works fine. 2- Zip-tie your garden hose loosely to the pole about 2' up, then about 6' up. Leave plenty of slack at the cleaner end so the cleaner can pivot to follow the floor. My use for the cleaner will be very occasional in a large 10' deep pool, so it's worth the low price
(3 out of 5 stars) Works ok. Hoped for better.

Pros: Picks up larger leafs
Cons: Hard to keep flat on pool surface
Bought the to take care of some of the larger leaves we have in our pool. Found it hard to keep flat on the pool surface. The front wants to keep riding up. Am considering adding a weight to address this.
(5 out of 5 stars) Sturdy

Pros: Well made
This is well made in my opinion and works like a charm. We have not been able to cover our pool in the winter ever since we found one of our older 150 lb dogs standing out on the cover one winter when the pool froze. We were afraid she might go out there and fall through the ice and get tangled in the cover. My neighbor has giant maple trees so we get a lot of leaves. This is the best way to get some fresh water in the pool and get the leafs out at the same time.
