Product Description

The aboveground pool uses the same pumps and filtration systems as the aboveground pool
All above ground pools with a depth of up to 5 feet can be used with the Polaris turbo turtle. The bottom and sides of the pool are vacuumed and then swept within three hours
The filter and skimmer are free to remove contaminants that are on the surface of the water due to the power of a returning stream of clean water back into the pool
Your pump basket or filter functions longer because of the unique filter bag it includes, which removes debris before it can harm them

Do these inserts work in the Intex 18x9x52 pools and am I required to use anything else in addition to what comes with ?

With this pump, I connected my Intex metal frame pool (24' x 52") to a water outlet vent, but I had to make my own connection. The outlet on the Intex pool is bigger than on most above ground pools, so I was unable to find a way to reduce its size. I have never been able to discover a working part for this, but apparently there is one. Though it is an excellent collector of debris, the turtle does so very well. Pecans used to clog up the regular vacuum hoses over the swimming pool because I had a pecan tree growing there. The solution to that problem worked well.

My ultra set 14x42 intex pool has a skimmer that needs to be bypassed. ?

Is there a way to cut the hose so that it fits the swimming ?

Cut inside the variegation, unscrew the end (that screws into the turtle), and put it back in place. It is tricky to get it back into the toe cap without bending it, so patience is required. What do you mean by cutting it? Do you need to? I replaced a section of hose before replacing the whole thing as it coils in on itself a lot, even though it's too short for my pool, so I replaced the whole thing before just cutting the hose because I had a hole in it

The trip is well worth the money
4/5

The turtle is one of my favorite animals. It's a pleasure to have him in the pool every few days and he does a terrific job cleaning the bottom of our very It appears that a lot of reviews state the turtle tends to slow down and coil up too fast. You may encounter this problem if your filter becomes If you backwash your filter, he'll be back to full speed in no time.

It is the second turtle I have bought since my first one Once I have stretched out the hose, the turtle can't seem to stop going in circles
3/5

There is an issue with 1 of the jets that is not blowing enough water to move the screen. NOT What I Was Looking For, I guess I will buy local next time so I will be able to get actual assistance.

I have been using Turbo Turtle for years
3/5

In the last couple of years, I've owned four or five Turbo Turtles. There has been a steady decline in quality for the past 13 years. It worked very well for 5 years or so when I first owned it. Previous to making this purchase, I had a really difficult time getting it to work. In a constant state of knotting, it was. There was a constant sinking instead of floating of the hose. The hoses that I did not trim correctly were too short for the turtle so that the turtle could not reach the whole I was able to replace the turtle after several communications with Polaris (and videos showing just how quickly the turtle tangled). The braid worked better, only tangling once or twice a week. Besides this, the turtle doesn't tangle often when I attach the new hose (I had to buy a new one because the old one had a hole in it). I have found that it picks up the trash from the bottom of the swimming pool quite well. The turtle is working and I hope that it will serve me for a few years. Perhaps I would purchase another turtle later on. I might try a different product next time.

I made the worst purchase of my life
3/5

I think I made the worst purchase in my entire life with this piece of garbage. It cost me hundreds of dollars. Getting tangled up does nothing but make things worse. Although I trimmed the end of the hose, this had no effect. The worst thing I could ever recommend to anyone is this. It would have been better for me to The only thing I can suggest is do not make the same mistake I made and buy this game. It is a mistake you will regret.

I like this cleaner a lot
5/5

Turtle 2 is the second one we have. The tail hose is a bit long, so we cut it back to make it shorter - he did a great job cleaning the bottom of the pool of leaves and sand - As a result, it did not get stuck on the stairs very often (even if it did happen occasionally).

It is worthless
3/5

There is no point to this. It has a strong tendency to turn hard left and coil into a tight knot every time it is turned on. As a result, it becomes worthless because it is completely stationary. It was made sure that all instructions (trimming the hose to the correct length) were Keep your money in your pocket You can also buy another item It couldn't get any worse than this, regardless of what you get.

You won't get any suction! This plane takes off and lands in a There's no sucking in this turtle, he blows! We're in trouble! Water is in the net! By using a jet of water, debris and water will be shot into a I absolutely love it, this pool cleaner is the best I have ever owned! It is important to read and follow the instructions, especially the ones about measuring the length of the hose to the pool! It is of great importance

I am disappointed
3/5

It was determined that #6 hose had a hole. It has been 21 years since I bought my pool. The turtle I bought for my third time was Now that the new turtle uses the hose from the old turtle, it just keeps going in circles and getting Refund requested by the customer. A new pool cleaner will have to be tried.
