    How long can a hayword navigator sit in the water?

    can I leave it in side for a few days? or remove after each cleaning daily?

    Mine's been in the water for many years (Yes, I'm lazy). I won't say it's been trouble-free (due for another tune-up), but I haven't seen any bad effects from being immersed. The plastic doesn't seem to like direct sunlight though, so put it in the shade if you take it out.

    I leave mine in all the time unless we are having people over to swim. I'm going on 3 years with no issues.

    We have found that these cleaners actually last longer staying in the pool wet (with proper water chemistry of course). The parts tend to wear far worse when getting wet, drying, getting wet again, etc etc etc.

    We leave ours in the pool, except for when we have a heavy swimmer load. My father does the same with his. No problems so far.

    We've had ours in the pool for about 6 years now and only take it out when we have guest. We've had to replace the feet 3 times and it just went in for a major rebuild in November of 2012. We live in a sandy area (desert) and there are times when I have to take it out and rinse the sand out of the gear box, but otherwise, it's still going strong.
