Baracuda G3/G4 vs. Kreepy Krauly Pool Cleaners


I’m deciding between two suction pool cleaners – the Baracuda G3/G4 by Zodiac and the Kreepy Krauly by Pentair. They both look and sound very similar. I currently have the Hayward, but the moving parts on the Hayward need to be replaced pretty often (once every year or so), which is adding significantly to my maintenance costs. Any comments on either of these cleaners?

    We havent bought one yet. But I am going to check out consumer reports.com to see if they have anything on them. I will get back if I get anything on them.

    Although the Baracuda’s sales pitch, is that it has no moving parts, that’s really not correct. They have a diaphragm that needs replacement every year on average. They also tend to choke up or split a diaphragm if they eat something too large as well.
    My bet is on the Kreepy. They do have one moving part ( the hammer), but if you’ve set the unit up, with the regulator valve that comes with it, there’s no issue with the hammer ever wearing out..
    I think you’ll be pleased with the better performance that the Kreepy has over your Navigator . No more cork to replace and no more intake grills to clean off to make it turn. The Kreepy also climbs walls.

  • Ive just recently strongly recommended this product to someone else on either your blog or another pool cleaning one.
    The automated pool cleaners are great, you can leave them on all day, also when you are swimming. They pretty much pay for themselves in the long run.
