    New house with pool - Old Barracuda Ranger?

    Hey all.

    I just bought a new house that has an AG pool. in the pile of equipment is a Barracuda Ranger cleaner. It looks to be in good shape, maybe just a bit sun bleached. However i cannot find the flowkeeper valve to go with it.

    My question is how long do these cleaners typically last until you need to replace them?

    I can buy a new valve for ~$50-60, but is it worth it? Or should i just invest in a new cleaner for ~$140.

    Or are there better cleaners out there for roughly the same price?

    Thanks!

    I would go new for something like that unless you know for sure that part will fix it

    Not the same price but I love my "the poolcleaner" poolvergnuegen

    not looking for something that pricey, or really any wheeled cleaner.

    anyone else?
