In the tradition of the AquaBug, the new Hayward families of above ground pool cleaners are designed to clean the bottom of all sizes and shapes of above-ground/on-ground pools – automatically. These attractive little critters operate off the pool's existing filtration system and feature our exclusive SmartDrive® program steering so it won't miss a spot.

PLEASE NOTE: This cleaner is not to be used on any soft sided above ground pool


  • Patented SmartDrive programmed steering system ensures the entire bottom of the pool is cleaned quickly and completely
  • Installs in less than 10 minutes, without tools
  • Unique turbine/gearing system provides constant balanced water flow assuring quiet operation and gentle movement across the pool bottom
  • Improves water circulation by pulling water from the pool bottom as it moves
  • Advanced, contoured head design allows the cleaner to complete the steering pattern in minimal time
  • Deluxe bumper ring minimizes friction for easy movement away from walls and resumption of the programmed steering pattern
  • Slotted santropene shoes for quick turns
  • Includes 32 feet of hose to adequately clean a 24 foot round pool

Product Warranty: 1 Year Manufacture Warranty.

Customer Reviews

This is a cool little vac. It hooks up to your filter intake or skimmer, and vacuums straight to your filter - not a bag with holes that doesn't catch fine particles. We use ours in a 24' above ground pool made by Intex. Yes, one of those temporary pools. It would work in any above ground pool! The most important thing to have is a good filter system. The filter supplied by Intex is not very good. This vac works best with a sand filter. We have a Hayward Pro Series system with a 1.5 hp Power Flo Maxtrix pump. The combination of this filter system and vacuum has saved my summers. I spent the first year with this pool spraying out the filter and hand/pole vacuuming only to see the finer particles come back into the pool through the return. It took all the pleasure out of having a pool! Now, I hook up my vac (3 min), turn on the filter system (1 sec), and walk away - it's awsome!!! This little vacuum even handled our pool opening this year, which included a large number of leaves and a ton of very fine particles. Unlike the super expensive Pool Rover, this vacuum does not move systematically around the pool to clean in a specific period of time. It moves in ever-widening circles, then goes straight for a bit and starts circling again. It can be a little vexing to see it turn just before it gets to something that you want it to vacuum up, but if you give it time, it will get everything. We put ours in and let in run for about an hour, when we come back the pool looks great! Aqua Bug, Wanda the Whale, and Diver Dave are all the same vacuum with different housings.

I have a 24 foot round above ground pool with a 52' inch depth. The bottom is not perfectly smooth (some wrinkles and divets), but the product does a great job in about 2 to 3 hours. I plan on running it every couple of days to clean and stir up the water at the bottom of the pool.

I wish I had bought this product a few years ago! It is amazing my pool has never looked so clean, it even picked up the leaves… It used to take me at least two hours to vacuum my 27' above ground was so easy to put together,started it up and walked away periodically I would check it but it was fine, and I was able to do other things while it cleaned my pool. Best product ever! And the service from the company is great, I will continue to purchase products from them, you won't be disappointed.

It works great except for a few occasional tumbles but it quickly corrects itself. It consuming to setup, you have to connect the hose every time and disconnect as well.

Delivered quickly works pretty good, sometimes the bug forgets part of the pool and need to move hose to get half the pool... seal on pump at times creates air bubbles.... does an ok job for price! Happy with purchase
