OVERVIEW
The Pentair Kreepy Krauly SandShark suction cleaner is the next step in automatic pool cleaning technology. The SandShark cleans in two steps. First, it scrubs your pool walls and floor, dislodging stubborn dirt particles with its rows of rubber scrubbers. Next, it vacuums away the debris to your pool's filtration system.
 
The SandShark features the exclusive SmartTrac programmed steering, which assures complete cleaning coverage from your pool floor to the waterline, maneuvering the SandShark around corners, swim-outs and steps. The two-way foot pad design scrubs and dislodges debris from the pool surface while its powerful vacuum action whisks it away. Best of all, there are no bags to empty or wheels, diaphragms or bags to replace.
 
There is no assembly required with the SandShark - just attach the provided and you're ready to go. The specialized Vac Port door fitting has a spring-loaded cover for added safety, and must be opened with a tool. The adjustable regulator valve and free flow gauge also let you set the right speed to assure the most effective cleaning possible.
 
The SandShark's wide body clears a 12-inch path as it cleans. It comes standard with a two-year warranty.

How does the Kreeply Krauly SandShark compare to the Kreepy Krauly Great White? An upgrade? Larger? Better? Can't really tell from the descriptions.
James M on Apr 2, 2016

Pentair Kreepy Krauly SandShark Suction Side Pool Cleaner | Hoses Included | GW7900
Pentair Kreepy Krauly Great White Suction Side Pool Cleaner | GW9500
Pentair Kreepy Krauly Great White Suction Side Pool Cleaner | GW9500
BEST ANSWER: I can not make this comparison, I have the GW9500 model. I will say that in the 2015 season It worked great the first part of the season. In late June I had a Heat Pump installed, When using my Kreepy Krauly It seems to be slower, does not clime the walls and keeps getting caught on my main drain cover. I,m not sure with Installation of the Heat Pump whether the 1HP motor is strong enough.
Do you have a swivel for the shark sweeper .My hose keeps getting tangled up as it goes around the pool?
Mike H on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't have a swivel. I'm on my second shark and I haven't had a problem with the hose.
why does it keep going back to the same area ?
perry w on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Make sure that you follow the setup directions for putting the weights in the correct areas on the hose. This will allow it to move freely and even up the side walls. If you find it is going back to the same areas even after following the directions, you may have to move the weights up or down the hose and then monitor it to see where it goes. You should have the length of the hose enough to reach the longest point of the pool.
I am not seeing where the $50 rebate is offered. The rebates do not seem to include the Sand Shark?
Marcelynn A on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When I bought the sand shark, it come with a $50 rebate Visa card later in the mail. Jerry from Arizona 2-11-2016.
does this work on an Intex pool?
Gaylie on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any pool can run any cleaner as long as it meets the minimum flow requirement. These sand sharks and most other cleaners will require a minimum flow rate of about 25-35 GPM. The only issue is that most Intex pool pumps will have a maximum flow rate of under that. Double check your pump flow rate before purchasing this.
my sand shark keeps getting stuck around steps and on bottom drain ?
Chuck on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: mine gets stuck in one corner also. what helps though is if your filter is clean and suction turned up it has a better chance to work itself out of corner.
my skimmer has more suction when I turn the main drain valve down and it does'nt get hung up main drain covers.....also keep swivel on sand shark to hose clean,,,,,,,,this will be my third swim season with sand shark
Does this require electrical outlet or does unit flow through pump filtration system?
Nancy C on Nov 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have a dedicated vacuum line, and just plugged it there and it runs every night when the filter runs.
Does it come with the donuts , that float the hose ?
Vito V on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does come with the necessary donuts. The donuts do not float the hose, though. The hose floats itself. The donuts are actually used to weight down the hose in the right place and keep the hose balanced. The instructions come with the unit and are easy to follow. The installation is easy. The product works well. If it ever gets stuck, just check to see if a tree nut fell in the pool and lodged in the intake. That happened about once or twice a year with me, but otherwise it worked really well.
I have queen palms around that ocassionally get under the cover, they distroyed a Baracuda MX8 and we have sand and that distroyed a Hayward Navigator and the current suction one gets stuck after new part and bladder. any feedback on how well this one might be with sand and some ability to handle queen palm froms?
Chris C on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We live in deep south texas and with the sand and ashes from the sugar cane burnings, our sand shark works great. We try to contain the amount of palm fronds that get into the system by scooping them out while they are still at the surface, before they sink.
Can this be used on inground pool with vinyl liner ?
A shopper on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be used in a vinyl pool. In fact, after trying several different types of sweepers this one was recommended by our pool cleaner and it is by far the best one we have ever used. Highly recommended for vinyl pools
IS THERE A EXTENDER HOSE THAT CAN BE ATTACHED TO THE 32' HOSE THAT CAME WITH THE CLEANER?
HelenO on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They are sold in different length sections.
Examples with different diameters are:

Conector Hose With Cuff | 1.25" x 3' | Black and Silver | VH243

Or:

Conector Hose With Cuff | 1.5" x 3' | Black and Silver | VH223
Why is our sweep getting stuck and not climbing the walls?
Lori M on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Check the pressure in filter. If it's high, clean the filter, if it's low clean the pump basket, and the inline leaf canister if you have one. Pressure side cleaners run off the suction of the circulation system, so make sure your filtration is working properly.
Can I use this with a vinyl pool liner?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Works fine and have had several of them
Can you use this on pebble tec/pebble sheen?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a pebble tec pool and my Kreepy works just fine!
What h.p is needed for this? I hooked up to filter and flow gauge didn't move...I checked the trouble shoot and it stated that my pump may not be strong enough....I have tried contacting store to return item for a cleaner not as big. Please help.
Lisa R on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I own a pool service co. for 25 years now. I have sand sharks in every pool I service. slowly converted from pool vac over the years. Sand Shark best cleaner on the market. I have run it on as small as 3/4 h.p. motor. A lot of factors such as size of pvc pipe to pump, distance from pool to pump and type of pump will affect the performance of the sand shark. Make sure filter is clean, impeller is clean, and all other intake lines to the pump, other than the line running the sand shark, are shut off. Once you establish your vacuum to the sand shark you can open other lines or adjust regulator valve to decrease the vacuum to the sand shark. I hope this helps.
does this product work on gunite pools?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes I think so. We have a pebbletech pool and it works great.
How do I make this work with the new anti suction drain covers? My sand shark get hung up on the drain cover.
David on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My shark hangs on such covers too. So I do monitor the shark and free it. Have to do this when a rock etc. Gets caught in the works. Othe rise it is a fone cleaner. The only cleaner that would roll over impediments is that large wheel one sold by Leslie's Pool now, formerly a German name. It's great too, but more expensive and does not use scrubbers to loosen grit from pebble tech or sheen surfaces. An important step.

Can't really advise, but wonder how necessary antisuction drain covers are. Usually the designed drain grid cover is sufficient. I have the latest design, newer pool and my shark does not get hung up on the drains..which have very little suck.

You could explore restoring to the original regular drain set up and adjust the suction, lowering it if needed.
Will small grains of roof grit clog the sweep?

Works like a charm
Very good value. Rubber scrubbers set this cleaner apart from all the rest. It scoots around the floor and up the walls (depending upon the suction level you set) to clean all sediment off. The rubber scrubbers are especially suited to textured pool finishes such as pebble tech or sheen - getting the sand and algae out of the small crevices that brushing can miss. I bought the shark for more than one property that has different pool finishes and it is great for plaster as well as pebble tech.

Pentair Kreepy Krauly is awesome!
Compared to other pool cleaners we have had, the Kreepy Krauly is superior. It never gets caught on our stairs, like others have, and our pool is extremely clean. I highly recommend this pool cleaner

unsatisfied kreepy krauly
I am not impressed with the kreepy krauly. Wished I had bought something more efficient on the walls and steps of pool. The opening is too tiny on bottom that the smallest anything can clog it instead of sending it to the filter basket.
Would not buy this type of pool sweep again

Awesome
Was looking for a cleaner that would do a good job but wouldn't damage my pool plaster. Called for some guidance and this worked just perfect for my pool.<br>

Kreepy Krauly
KK does a great job, over the areas it cover. The issue is it doesn't cover the whole pool. Therefore, we end up with large areas that remain untouched.
Would be nice if it would start at one end and go back and forth until the complete pool was covered but it just doesn't work that way.

Good product good vendor
The Kreepy Krawley sand shark is a very reliable cleaner. We’ve tried a couple of different types before; this one covers the entire pool consistently & rarely gets hung up due to debris. The purchase and delivery process through poolsupplyunlimited.com was easy & quick.

I Love It!!
Love the sand shark pool cleaner! It is so much quieter than our old style Kreepy Krauly Classic. Its doing a great job of hitting all the areas of the pool and does not get stuck in the spa. Yeah!!

Kreepy Krauly climbs
This automatic pool cleaner works great. It will climb the walls too which I like because it reduces the amount of brushing I need to do. It moves slowly but once it is in and hooked up, within an hour or so the pool is clean.
