Choosing the Best Suction Pool Cleaner For Leaves *

*This is a collaborative post.

It is great to have a nice building as your home or place of business and to equip it with many amenities that make it comfortable, relaxing and worth being in. This, however, comes with great responsibilities which include maintaining and keeping the amenities clean and in good shape.

If there is a lack of proper maintenance of an amenity/facility, no matter the cost or elegance of the facility/amenity, the purpose of such amenity is defeated. A popular example of such an amenity would be a pool.

Obviously, nobody wants to swim in a dirty and unkempt pool. One of the ways it becomes unkempt is when it becomes filled with leaves and other debris.

The next question then becomes, what can be used to effectively tackle this issue?

The Suction Pool Cleaner

This equipment, which you can read more about here, generally works as a vacuum cleaner and is able to move around in the pool, cleaning up and collecting dirt, leaves and other unwanted particles in the water. It is able to do this by using the pressure from the water intake which enables it to move around performing its cleaning function.

Obviously, in order to get your desired result, you would need to get one that would serve the intended purpose. Luckily, there are many good products on the market that you could get. However, there are also many not so good ones that might be presented to you and without proper guidance, you might just be led astray.

Given this, what you really need is to be properly informed and guided as you’re about to make your choice. This would be even more important for you if you do not know much about this equipment.

A Look at Some of the Best Suction Pool cleaners Available

Based on recommendations from review sites like, we will now quickly look at some brands and models that come highly recommended.

The Hayward PHS41CST AquaNaut

Unlike most other types that would require that a booster pump be used, this one only requires that it be plugged into an existing pump. Again, it is able to produce power despite the rate of the flow and is still able to manage all the dirt and debris without clogging.

You can get it for any type of pool, both the small and large ones, and it would still be effective.

The Hayward Poolvergnuegen 896584000-013

More simply known as the Hayward pool vacuum device, this is a two-wheel-drive cleaner with strong turbine vanes that can adjust by itself for a more thorough cleaning job. Its roller skirt is also adjustable which makes for an even more efficient cleanup of uneven areas.

Also, despite the size of the debris in the water, this cleaner doesn’t get clogged. It also has pre-programmed steering sequences which allow it to function using the various sequences. However, it is also able to function randomly.

The Baracuda G3 W03000 Advanced Suction Side Automatic Cleaner

This is a pump-action automatic cleaner that is very strong and equally easy to install. Though it has only one moving part, it is very efficient in the cleaning job that it does and it also does it very quickly because of its 36-Fin Disc technology that allows for quick and better movement on the pool surface.

The Polaris Vac-Sweep 3900 Sport Pressure Side Cleaner

This is considered by many as the top pressure side cleaner because of its efficiency. The reason for this is because the Polaris Vac-Sweep 3900 Sport has an all-wheel-drive PosiDrive system that generates extra torque enabling it to clean better with fewer hitches.

XtremePowerUs Vacuum Generic Cleaner

This cleaner has as its major positives, its affordability, its compatibility with current filtration systems, its ability to be used on various surfaces like fibreglass, vinyl and concrete surfaces. It is very efficient in the cleaning job that it does though it is most suited for cleaning smaller pools.
