The Riptide Pool Vacuum System made its debut in late 2016. Since then, it has gone through a number of transformation, with each one taking it to the next level a lot like Iron Man’s suit! The Riptide Circa 2021 is the finest version yet and it is packed with so many updated features it should have been called the Riptide SL 2.0.
Here are some of the great updated features:
High Torque Motor (uses rare earth magnets) High Torque Motor- Our new High Torque motor utilizes rare earth magnets making it the most powerful vacuum on the market
The cord -new protective external layer – it just feels so solid and durable

Stainless steel end plates on the vacuum head
The cart is now e-coated before powder coating &t he Transport Rack Is e-coated now too - Electrostatic Coating- All of our powder coated parts are now electrostatic coated (ecoating) and then powder coated over. This makes the finish of our components much more durable.
Extremely high quality integrated steering knuckle -Integrated Stainless Steel Steering Knuckle. This allows you to hook any pole directly up to the Riptide vacuum without the need for any adaptors while being effortless to maneuver in the water.
The SL model Riptides now include a Diagnostic/Tool Kit with a battery load tester, the load tester is essential for quickly determining battery condition.
The bags now have a different ring color to differentiate different microns.

Basically, the updated Riptide SL is the most durable vacuum system on the market today. The shell is backed by a 10-year warranty, the added steel plates to the vacuum head sides, the stainless steel knuckle and the new beefed up cord make it designed to last!
