Works Great!

Pros: cleans well no issues, manufactuers customer service was good, this is also very easy to put together 5mins. max
Cons: takes a bit of tinkering to get the right setting, if you have a problem the instructions aren't the, best to help figure out what is wrong
"Works well, read the other reviews and some said it didn't clean their pool and was stuck in one spot. Found the same thing, but called the manufacturer and they were very polite and told me to adjust the hose length to that of the pool (corner to corner) and the regulator dial that goes into the skimmer. In my case the dial was at max. so it had too much suction, played with the regulator and works great now. WAY better than doing it manually."

Amazing deal!

Pros: cleaned the entire pool not just the bottom
"I've bought another at twice the price with terrible results. Glad I purchased this gem at Costco!
Need to remember to backwash to clean your filter if it doesn't suck very well. If you need it to go deeper or higher up the walls you simply adjust the placement of the supplied weight.
Great purchase!"

best money spent

"I have bought other brands before and at first I didn't think this would work well either, didn't seem to have much power. Then we realized it was out filter, which needs new clean sand, so when we put the filter on backwash and rinse for several minutes, the pool cleaner went 110 km/h around the pool. Now does a great job and also helps to circulate the cold water from the bottom of the pool so that the whole pool has evenly heated water. So to all those who think it's not very powerful, try doing a backwash and rinse on your pool filter."

Great product

"This is a great product for the price. We have a 30x14 inground pool and it cleans it all."

Disappointing

Pros: right price, appears well constructed
Cons: poor instuction manual, no manufacture support
"I have a 15" above gound pool and was looking for a pool cleaner. This one was the right price so thought I'd try it. This cleaner did not work in my pool. I tried different configurations but it stayed in one location and did not move. It's either the cleaner or the skimmer on the pool was not powerful enough to move the cleaner. The cleaner was easy to set up but the instruction or manual is terrible. I emailed the manufacture but never got a reply."

Good value for the money

Pros: cheap, good quality of the parts
Cons: - very light does not easily go into the deep
"I have bought this cleaner to replace my retired Kreepy Krauly, which served well for many years but started falling apart recently.
I did not want to buy $800-1000 robot because most of the people using them complained that they worked fine for first couple of months only.
I was considering several cleaners and decided to try this one because Costco usually offers quality products, according to my personal experience.
Assembling was very easy, be careful with these little plastic pins, they can be easily broken (but you get 4 of them and need only 2 :) ).
I like the valve that controls the speed of the robot. I did not have this kind of device with my old one. The skimmer adapter is also very good, fits securely into the skimmer's drain.
The robot is very light, probably a bit too light. I see that is prefers to run around the pool without going into the deepest part of it. I am considering adding some kind of weight to it to help it sink better.
So, I think that I have got a good tool for fair price. Will see how long does it last."
