The Poolvergnuegen blue and white four-wheel PoolCleaner model is ideal for light-bottomed pools, and has a number of unique features, including four-wheel drive. Self-adjusting turbine vanes maximized power from the flow of water allowing the suction cleaner to move at low suction and pressure, and the folding vanes allow for clear passage of larger debris through the cleaner.
The PoolCleaner's internal programmed steering system causes the left wheels to switch to reverse periodically, allowing the four-wheel cleaner to move in another direction. Its four-wheel drive Five different programmed turns, ranging from 90 to 450 degrees, allow it to cover both ends of the pool easily, and it won't get stuck in a corner or get hung up by a main drain.

One of the most distinctive features of the PoolCleaner is its tire treads, which give it better climbing ability and obstacle maneuverability, particularly with the four-wheel model. The tires also come with tread wear markers that show you when to replace them. The front tires have raised treads that allow the cleaner to overcome any reasonable obstacles sand uneven surfaces, making it ideal for all pool surfaces and shapes.

The PoolCleaner's patented adjustable skirts allow the cleaner to maintain optimal suction under the machine even when encountering obstacles. One (or more) of the skirts will lift up over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner.
The blue and white PoolCleaner is also available in a two-wheel model (see Other Purchase Options to the right). The four-wheel PoolCleaner is optimal for longer pools because of the distance to the pool's suction port.

Does the Poolvergnuegen PoolCleaner 4-Wheel Suction Side Cleaner come with 33' of hose, like the 2 wheel drive, or does it come with 40' of hose length?
A shopper on May 9, 2017
I've been using a Sand Shark for many years. It cleans well but my pool guy says it is hard on the liner. Do the tires slip much as it moves? Also, how well does it climb sidewalls? Thanks!
Rex S on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will not climb. Most of the time it hovers over the bottom. No good. Navigator works better in my experience
What is the length of hose that comes with the 4 wheel version?

Does this cleaner work well on a vinyl inground pool?
Melodi M on Mar 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should work very well. Since it doesn't have any brushing or pulsating action like other cleaners, it should not damage vinyl edges.
Does this pool cleaner work with variable speed pumps?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes I have a variable speed and it works great. I set the pump to high speed (sweeper speed) for a couple hours a day to run the cleaner, and then down to a lower speed for the remainder of the time.

A shopper on Feb 20, 2017

I am considering the 4 wheel version of The Pool
cleaner. Will it work with a dark colored pool liner?

Jeff B on Sep 16, 2018

Its a beauty
This cleaner is an absolute workhorse. All that I've had to do in 4 years is take it out of the water for an occasional clog(which rarely happens), and I have changed the front tires twice and rear tires once at a cost of about $35 per pair.This thing cleans so much better than the Hayward its not even funny.

Don't buy anything else
Have had several other cleaners and wanted to avoid the high priced robotics, so I thought I would give the pool cleaner a shot after reading good things about it. Everything I read was true and I couldn't be happier. It NEVER gets stuck! I can't say that for any cleaner before. It's easy to set up and adjust the suction.

Highly Recommended
This cleaner came recommended to me by a friend and I am glad I listened! Great construction and the set up was pretty easy. I had problems with cleaners just circling the deep end before, but this is the first one that makes it to the shallow end. Great suction!

Excellent machine
By far the best pool cleaner I've purchased. It doesn't really climb the walls - but I think that's just a function of my skimmer's poor suction and not the cleaner. We have a rather steep slope from the deep end to the shallow end - my old machine never made it up. This one climbs it no problem! When it appears to get stuck on a step - it eventually finds its way out with a quick pirouette. So far -no issues and the pool bottom looks great!

Works great as did the last one
This is a replacement for a unit which finally wore out after 5+ years of good service. If you want your pool clean, then this is the gadget to get.

Works great so far
Works a hell of a lot better than the $1200 Polaris P825 I bought from Leslie's. Lets see if it can last longer. Sometimes keeping it simple is the better option. Only knock is I had to but 2 extra tubes so the cleaner could cover the entire pool.
