Top 10 Automatic Pool Cleaners of 2013: Number Three

"The Pool Cleaner"
In third place is a suction side cleaner, the Poolvergnuegen "The Pool Cleaner" 2 Wheel version (white & blue) and the 2 Wheel "Limited Edition" that comes in grey and black.You can hook this cleaner up to any pool with a skimmer or side port. It is by far the most durable suction side cleaner. I have about 12 of these on my route and I gotta tell you I have total confidence when I sell one of these. They are near the top price bracket for a suction side cleaner but worth every penny. The design is flawless as this cleaner never gets stuck in a corner or on the step area. It turns itself in the pool every 10-12 feet so it will cover the entire pool in one run cycle (4-6 hours) while the pool is on. It picks up large debris also like large oak tree acorns as well as dirt and dust. The only part that needs changing in the first two years are the rubber tires. If you change them when they get down to the wear mark you will not have any issues with this cleaner. Maybe every two years the tires will wear down. The gears are very long lasting in these cleaners. I have three that I
"Limited Edition"
Put in about 5 years ago and I have not needed to change any of the
internal gears as of yet. They are all running just fine. I like the two
wheel version over the four because there are basically less parts
to worry about in the long run and I feel the two wheel version is
a more balanced unit. If you have a large pool with the
skimmer or side port located far from the opposite pool end
you may want the four wheel version as it has more hoses and is
designed for larger pools. But a large pool with a skimmer or
side port in the middle is fine for the two wheel version. This is the best suction side cleaner in my opinion.
