    Mamba Vacum used 6 times thrown across the yard dozens of times

    HELP!!
    Bought a Aqua Products Mamba a year ago and the stupid POC won't work!!
    This thing is about the worst vacuum you could buy. Anyone else have problems with this product??
    I have a Prima 52'', AGP that is 18x33, oval with a sand filter. My filter is 25'' 2.0hp with dual speed. the pool is 7 years old and was purchased at Atlantis Pools in Alton Illinois.

    I'm still manually vac'ing after all these years.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    <shrug> never heard of that one, but we *love* our Pool Blaster Max (quasi-manual) even though the first one crapped out after a year and a half.

    I have not heard of it either. I had the Pool Blaster and it worked fine for the year I used it. What problems are you having?

    That looks a lot like my Zodiac Wahoo cleaner.

    It tool me a long time to get that thing to work right. They are pretty touchy, too much or too little suction and they don't work right. Either they don't move, or they go bananas and climb out of the pool (which is not necessarily a bad thing).

    Before I hard plumbed my pool, I found I had to plug the hose directly into the skimmer. I could not use the suction regulator - it would not work.

    After I hard plumbed the pool, the thing works so much better.


    Thanks
