Here's what to Expect from the Tigershark
There has been a lot of mis-information out there regarding the TigerShark and V-Flex but the current model DOES NOT HAVE V-Flex. The Navigator and the AquaNaut do but the TigerShark does not. V-Flex™ technology, which allows users to handle larger debris with virtually clog-free cleaning. Furthermore, the energy-efficient design of V-Flex™ maximizes suction power at almost any flow, making it the perfect companion for variable-speed pumps. As a result, V-Flex™ is considered by many to be the most advanced, unique suction cleaner turbine technology on the market, and it’s only found in the Navigator and AquaNaut Hayward pool cleaners.
The Hayward RC9990CUB TigerShark® Pool Cleaner is also one of the strongest, yet most energy-efficient, suction cleaners on the market. Running at a mere 0.5 horsepower, the pump is still extremely stable and powerful, and owners praised its ability to clean their entire pool from end to end.
The TigerShark® also has a unique cartridge filter system which allows you to easily clean the filters. Two simple clicks open the housing, allowing you to pull the filters out and clean them with a garden hose. This innovative approach to filter cleaning saves time and also ensures the filters last longer than traditionally-cleaned filters.
A powerful four-wheel drive mode coupled with adjustable roller skirts ensure the TigerShark® performs a smooth and stable cleaning, maintaining suction power over rough terrain.
Along with the help of rugged tires it can clean all areas of the pool, even climbing walls and removing algae and other debris all the way up to the waterline. Following a standard pre-programmed steering route, this full cleaning can be done in just three hours or less.
Quick Clean Option
If a mere three hours is still too much time for you, don’t worry – the Hayward TigerShark® has a solution for you as well. Utilizing the QuickClean option, you can save time and have your pool cleaned in just 90 minutes, leaving the rest of your time free to accomplish other tasks. We’re sure you’ll join the many customers who have thanked Hayward for this innovative, helpful feature.
The Hayward RC9990CUB TigerShark® Pool Cleaner has received many accolades, from customers and industry heads alike. One of the major positives people found was the ability to clean a pool efficiently and, with the four-wheel drive mode, smoothly and powerfully as well.
People also loved that it is virtually hassle-free when you assign a pre-programmed command for the TigerShark® to follow. The rugged tires and wall-climbing ability were also among the praised features available on the TigerShark® RC9990CUB.
Some people complained that the price was high, while a few others who are more familiar with pool cleaners without wheels didn’t like the four-wheel mode. Some others lamented the fact that it was heavy and difficult to remove from the pool. Some buyers also said that, unless you know how to repair robotic pool cleaners, you should avoid this model because certain parts broke after only a few months of use.
