Riptide SL Pool Vacuum System Review

This is the New Riptide SL Pool Vacuum System. The Riptide vacuum uses a 30 Lbs thrust motor to spin a propeller on top and suck large debris into the large debris bag on top. I have been using the Riptide Commercial Cart on my Pool Route and the SL cart uses the same Vacuum head but the cart is more compact and maneuverable.




The Riptide Vacuum System is an essential tool if you service pools that get destroyed by the winds or work in an area where the pools get a lot of large debris all season long. For the homeowner or service tech who doesn't want or need the SL cart, you can now order the Riptide Vacuum Head with just a Battery Box. It will work exactly the same as far as vacuuming power, but the time between charges will be shorter. The 35 AH battery for the Battery Box should last around 3 hours of continuous use before charging.

The SL Cart can hold up to a class 27 100 AH battery which gives you about 6-8 hours of vacuuming time with the Riptide.

The Riptide SL cart comes loaded with some great features which I will touch on briefly here. One of the things I really like is the dedicated plug on the cart itself. The Vacuum Cord plugs right into the cart and the plug is very well made and actually holds the cord in even if you tug really hard on t while vacuuming a pool. Right above the plug is the easy to reach on/off switch. The ease of use of the Riptide SL makes this an ideal Vacuum System for you. Simply connect your pole to the Riptide Vacuum head, uncoil the cord from the top, plug it in, drop the vacuum in the pool and turn it on.


The cart also features large rugged rubber wheels that are ideal for rough yards and step areas. This is a very light weight cart and even with the 60 lb. Battery in the bottom, the wheels make it effortless to pull the cart over any terrain. It is also very well balanced and even pulling it up hills it is very steady. The handle on top is adjustable, so you can turn it at an angle for different heights, making it even easier to pull.
