For years I've dragged out the hoses to vacuum the pool. This unit is self contained and requires no outside connections. I will admit at first it was a hate/love relationship at first. Everything worked as expected with the exception of the fine silt debris bag. To me is was something that engineering didn't think out. The silt bag goes inside goes inside the regular debris bag. But in doing so it makes the nose cone extremely hard to get the lock tabs to lock. I was going to attach a video, but the videos on their web site are far superior than I could do.

Cand vacuum my pool with the pool pump running and have no worries. Do not have to shut off the pool pump and switch to vacuum on the pump and after vacuuming, you would have to backwash the pool pump. Very good looking and I like that the Catfish pool vacuum has a rechargeable battery and no worries of buying new batteries all the time. The Catfish is very durable and made of a high quality material. It is the perfect size and weight to vacuum the pool, not like those others that are heavy and bulky. Very easy to use and is also very sturdy. It has a nice design and easy to empty the trash tank after vacuuming. I would recommend this Catfish Pool Vacuum to all my friend and family that have pools. Thanks. Awesome. Great Product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Catfish Spa and Pool Vacuum was well packaged and came in great condition. I have a very large pool and spa. It worked great in the spa but took a long time to clean the pool. I would recommend this vacuum for a child’s pool, an above ground pool, and a spa. I had an extra pool pole so I am leaving this on this vacuum rather than changing it all the time. I will also be using this vacuum in a small water fall and pond that I have in the front of my yard. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Catfish battery powered rechargeable Spa and pool vacuum is manufactured in China. It is about 18" long, lightweight and has contained rechargeable batteries. The type of batteries are unknown. We have a 30000 gallon pool. It is large but no so large that the catfish cannot be used. Upon opening the box, all pieces were nicely packaged. No damage. The unit is made of generally good manufactured plastic parts. The instructions were generally clear. However there are issues with this unit. The handle support will not fit on our China made pool pole. It hangs up within the mounting ring preventing the pool pole from interlocking. The same condition existed with our USA made original 43 year old pole as well. Duct Tape does wonders. One thing that was prevalent was the grinding noise within the cleaner. It was a loud noise that was even audible while under water. No mention was made of this noise within the manual. Now this is not designed to clean the entire pool in my estimation. However it is most useful for intermediate cleanings where some light debris had accumulated on the pool floor. Capacity is really small. Filter cleaning is a chore. It may only be suitable for spa cleanings but for regular sized pool such as ours it is not practicable. However if the geniuses thought it out a bit, just by enlarging the clear nozzle connector piece, I bet that capacity could be increased tenfold. Other nuances include no power reserve indicator. No parts diagram for replacement parts since this unit will eventually wear out. The charging port in located within a clam shell gasket sealed back of the cleaner. What was unusual was that there was two switch boots, one internal and one external but no internal seal boot for the charging port. To its credit, it did pick up most debris including small amounts of maple tree seed pods. Swimming pool precipitate material was collected using the filter media. Cannot recommend the Catfish due to the pump motor grinding noise, the pool pole connectivity issues and the low capacity. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My neighbor has the Pool Blaster Catfish Cordless Pool and Spa Vacum and recommended giving it a try for both my spa and pool They LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT AND SO DO I Pool Blaster is so incredibly easy to assemble, light weight and easy to use after a full four hour charge. Charged once and have used it to clean pool bottom four different times. The only thing that I would suggest to the manufacturer is to secure the base that holds the filter. As maneuvering around be sure the unit stays up right otherwise the Pool Blaster comes apart and the dirt begins floating back into the water. A little practice the better you will be at keeping it upright Contents are pictured below, all you need is a long extended pole which I had for the net used for scraping leafs off the top of the pool Nothing please me more than a personal note from the manufacturer placed in with their product providing contact information locally in the U.S, personally I feel shows Excellent Customer Service [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this to clean out an above ground kiddie pool. It works better than the type that you have to attach to a garden hose and it’s definitely better than just using a net alone. This one did not include a pole, and I didn’t have one, so with some creative engineering I attached it to a piece of PVC pipe. The vacuum is a little bit bigger than a handheld dustbuster type vacuum. However, I found it to be somewhat heavy and hard to maneuver around the pool with its weight and the drag from the water. It did do its job of cleaning the pool though so with that I would recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

An effective cordless pool and spa vacuum that won't break the bank, wonderful! This vacuum was very easy to assemble with the included visual assembly card ---sometimes reading directions is so tedious. With the assembly card you just follow the pictures. It takes about 4 hours for the initial charge. I used this on our built in pool. I found it most effective if I was in the pool when using it because I was able to get the right pressure on it to keep it skimming along the pool floor. Otherwise, it does tend to float above the floor of the pool. This vacuum will also work for hot tubs and above ground pools. The suction was strong. It did a great job sucking up grit from the pool deck as well as some leaves. The charge lasted the entire time I was cleaning. I can't say how long in total the charge would last but I was cleaning for a good 15-20 minutes. Cleaning the unit when I was finished was easy. It doesn't include the pole but any standard pool brush pole will work with this vacuum. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I can not say enough good things about the WATER TECH Catfish Battery Powered Rechargeable Spa and Pool Vacuum. I had a cloud of scum on the bottom of my pool that could not be touched by various other vacuum methods. The stuff would turn into a smokey cloud and eventually resettle in the pool with nothing left in the filter. This unit comes with extra fine mesh filters. I installed one and started vacuuming and noticed-NO CLOUD! This unit removed it all and left no trace except the gook left in the filter. The filters rinsed out very easily. This unit is easy to handle, you don't have to pull around a hose with you and it is light. It attaches easily to you pool pole. This is not the unit to remove a tree from the bottom of your pool but it will certainly "polish the surface" as a final clean. My one nudge to the manufacturer would be the head only angles up and down but it should fully pivot for corners in an oval pool. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
