    Hayward Sharkvac - Shark Vac - does it learn your pool shape

    I recently bought a Hayward Shark Vac. I believe one of its advantages is that it lears the shape of your pool, and then becomes more efficienct with coverage. My question is, is this learning cumulative? A cleaning cycle is 2 hours -- does it learn during this 2 hours, and get more...

    Kreepy Krauly - Thruster backup valve -- how to attach

    Wow, great, I've found another thruster owner! Thank you for the reply. I have hose weights, the donuts that go on the hose. I don't think I have, or have ever heard, or hose floats. Are these an aftermarket product? It makes sense, since my thruster always drops and sinks to the bottom no...

    Poolskim - how difficult and how quick to remove / reinstall

    Re: Poolskim - how difficult and how quick to remove / reins Another Poolskim recommendation! In my experience, its easy to remove and reinstall. I always do it from the pool deck, just kneel down and reach in the water. However, I rarely remove it. In prior years, esp. in April and May, I...

    This was originally a Pentair product. In the manual and other literature, they recommend using it if you get stuck or go in circles. However, they have discontinued it, and it seems they no longer support it. I was hoping that someone else on this forum has used it before, and could help me...

    Kreepy Krauly - Thruster backup valve -- how to attach

    Thanks. I did visit that site before I posted, but the manual is not there. In fact, I've search dozens of sites found on Google, but none have the manual. I've also searched all over this forum. The Thruster has been discontinued by Pentair, and I can't find the manual anywhere. I called...

    Question on Poolvergnuegen's Pressure Side Pool Cleaner
