A great pool cleaning tool
Pros: Cleans very effectively
Cons: Clogs on certain objects
This is a great tool for keeping the pool sparkling clean. I'm sure the Hayward Ultra-Vac would work just as well. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Easily Setup, cleans well, does not get stuck on steps.
Cons: Seed pods stop the turbine, just remove and Navigator is back working.
An excellent cleaner, better the others I've tried. I haven't had to touch my pool for 3 weeks and have many trees around the pool. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Cleans every inch of the pool! Except steps.

Great Product! Worth the money! Saves hours of brushing and fine tuning other cleaners to reach all pool surfaces. Read More at Epinions.com

Much better than Baracuda, best I've seen.
Pros: Climbs walls, right to the surface, completely covers a 36x18' pool in < 2hrs.
Cons: Navigator stalls from time to time, but only if you run it all the time. Read More at Epinions.com

Cleans well, but some maintenance required
Pros: Cleans well, very good pool coverage if given time to work.
Cons: Lots of moving parts, some wear is bound to occur.
Worth trying one out. Mine has given me over two years of trouble free service with excellent results. Read More at Epinions.com

A Good Product, But Shop Around For Best Price
Pros: Easy instructions and set up. Does a very good job and does the sides well.
Cons: Too much time nosed up against the steps. Can't do steps. Can get clogged.
I recommend the Navigator, but shop around on price. Once it is set up, it is very easy to use and will do the job. Read More at Epinions.com

A time-saver for me.
Pros: Performs well. Thorough - given enough time.
Cons: Can't handle large debris, doesn't do steps, it wasn't cheap
An expensive time-saver for removing dirt from the pool floor. If you have a lot of leaves or other debris, this is probably not a good option. Read More at Epinions.com

Navigator - 8 years and still running
Pros: Good suction, does clean, easy to maintain
Cons: Overpriced parts, part wearability, can get stuck
I would purchase another. It does everything it claimed to do and lasted for 8 years in the pool with little maintenance. Read More at Epinions.com
