Introducing the Hayward Aqua Critter, the Easiest Above Ground Pool Cleaner

The Hayward Aqua Critter is a suction side pool cleaner and a great addition to your above ground pool.  The Aqua Critter specializes in cleaning the bottom of your pool: picking up any debris in its path, even in corners and coves.


You might recognize the bottom of Aqua Critter. It looks strikingly similar to the Hayward PoolVacXL, which has been a trusted suction side cleaner for many years. The Aqua Critter uses the same technology, making it an excellent option for your above ground swimming pool.
