I found a suction side cleaner in my pool shed left by previous owners. It says Kontiki on the side so I am guessing it is this:

It's pretty dirty and has been sitting in the back of the shed for at least a few years now, but does not appear obviously broken in any way. I have not taken a full inventory of parts, but my guess is I am missing a few minor ones and would need to order.
In a search I didn't find a whole lot of reviews on TFP regarding this cleaner, and reviews elsewhere have been mixed. Does anyone have any experience with this? What is the useful life? Am I better off saving myself a Sunday afternoon and perhaps some frustration and hitting reset and just buying a Diver Dave/Wanda Whale/Aquabug?
