Hayward AquaNaut, PoolCleaner & Phoenix Cleaners
The best cleaners on the market at the moment are the Hayward AquaNaut, PoolCleaner and Phoenix which are all three the same cleaner with different color schemes and different purchase locations. The Poolvergnuegen brand was bought out by Hayward and in order to expand the cleaners appeal Hayward launched the Aquanaut which can be purchased online and the Phoenix, sold exclusively at Leslie's Pool Stores. The PoolCleaner version can be found online and through your local pool service company.
Which one to get depends on your preference and if there is a rebate in effect at the time of purchase. The PoolCleaner will be the lowest priced of the three when there is no rebate to be found.
