    Pentair Kreepy Krauly?

    When we ordered our soft sided pool (Legacy brand not intex)...the company asked if we wanted an automatic vac. We had them bundle it with the pool and send it to us. It's a splash a round leisure vac and in my opinion works terrible. Plus they overcharged us as I found the same unit on amazon for about $150 less than what we paid. I want a vac that is reliable, not too expensive, and something pretty much trouble-free. I would love to buy one of these Pentair kreepy kraulys because they've been around for so long and seem to get good reviews...however this unit I'm wanting is for an in-ground pool. Does it matter if you use an in-ground pool vac on an above ground pool? Is there something I need to be thinking about with this? Thanks!
    Legacy AG soft-sided pool (13'x21'x52"), 7,400 gallons I think?? (not sure how to determine this for sure...I've used poolmath but the pool is slightly irregular we have found), Pooline sand filter, 1 horsepower/1 speed pump, Pool installed within the last week and finished filling 4/26/15, TF-100 test kit, Intex Krystal Clear SWG, & Splash a Round Pools Leisure automatic vac. 1st time pool owner wanting to avoid the pool stores!

    I believe that's a suction-side vacuum that relies on our pump for power?
    I personally just went thru that with the aquabug and I'm not happy with that kind of vacuum. I bought the Aquabot Pool Rover instead (no connection to your pump) and am very happy with it.

    Yes it is a side suction. Connecting all the hoses for the one we have now bugs the heck out of me! Where did you order your Aquabot from and which model did you get? Could you send me a link? Thanks!

    This is the one I have now...as you can see the reviews on Amazon aren't good...and there aren't many reviews either....I'm not impressed with it but hate to spend more $$!

    I have a Kreepy Krawly which is a suction cleaner and it fits it's name! Goes around in a figure 8 and I have to baby sit it. Takes long time to half way clean the pool when I can hand vac in an hour and be done.saving up for a robot!

    I keep reading such good things about it, but thanks for your review! I do NOT want to babysit our next automatic vac, lol!

    I got the ST40I. I bought it at some online pool superstore just because they were $45 cheaper than amazon.
    Some people get the ST50 which has brushes to pick up a little more fine sediment off the bottom. It would be nice, but I find mine cleans very well.
