I have a Tiger Shark by Aqua Vac pool cleaner that is just sitting in our pump house taking up space. I am looking for a current owner of one of these that would like to save some money on replacement parts. The only thing that doesn't work on this cleaner is the impeller.
This commercial pool cleaner Tigershark will travel around the pool just fine. The problem is with the impeller there on top. It doesn't turn by itself. I can turn it with my finger. I don't know if it is that the motor is bad or the impeller has a broken shaft. Without the impeller turning, water is not pulled through the filter, so the cleaner just travels around looking like it is cleaning.
I priced the motor for the impeller and it was anywhere between 250 and 500 depending on where you get it from. We have a Polaris with booster pump now. This Tiger Shark by Aqua Vac climbed the walls and scrubbed them great.
I was hoping to find someone who already had one that would appreciate this great deal and want this package for parts. It comes with the power supply, 50 ft cord, 4 sets of filters(one still in plastic), and all the other parts in working order.
This site: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/haywar ... 46975.html shows the varying cost of the parts on this efficient commercial grade cleaner.
The reason I switched over is because I had never had a Polaris with a booster pump and wanted to compare it to this one before I took it in for repair. I actually planned on taking it in, but like the Polaris. The Polaris doesn't clean as well or as efficient, but I can leave the Polaris in the pool, 24/7 even with swimmers. This Tiger Shark is powered with an electric motor and will clean the pool in 2-4 hours, but you must remove before entering pool for safety. I know this Tiger Shark saved us electricity, because we ran it 2-4 hours a night, and our Polaris booster pump runs 23/7-365.
