So I have a Zodiac G4. Last week or so, the skirt has been falling off. So I started looking around to get a new one. I've been a little worried about it because it's a few years old and just seemed to be getting brittle feeling.
Well, when I fished it out to put the skirt back on this morning, the sail broke.
So now I'm looking at a sail and a skirt and I'm getting close to a new cleaner at this point. There are other parts on the G4 that feel brittle as well.
So I noticed the G4 is no longer made by Zodiac, which I am thinking may be due to complaints from the plethora of relatively brittle parts on it as opposed to the G3.
So then I started looking at a G3 and trying to find reviews. It reviews pretty well, but it's compared a lot to the Kreepy Krauly and Kreepy Kruiser.
So I'm looking there as well.
Are there any folks here who have experience with both the Kreepy's and the G3? Which do you prefer and why?
I saw this guys pool cleaner reviews on Youtube and he says the Kreepy Krauler is the best.
However, it has a lot of parts and even he has replaced almost all these parts over the years. The Kruiser has a lot less parts. The G3 has the diaphragm which needs replacing about every year. I don't get a ton of stuff in my pool. South Florida, some leaves, some pine needles. I also had a Hayward Navigator in the past, too many broken parts for me on that one.
What do you guys recommend?
