Today I am sharing the best robotic pool cleaner that climbs walls and stairs! The Hayward AquaVac 6 Series. We have had many robotic pool cleaners in the past and the Hayward AquaVac 6 Series is by far, the best pool cleaning robot we have used. If you missed the start of our Summer Series with Hayward Pool, be sure to check out our Hayward VS Omni Variable Speed Pump with Smart Control blog post and our post featuring the Hayward AquaRite® salt chlorination system.

In the past, it’s been tedious keeping the robotic pool cleaners from getting clogged with debris but I am so happy to say that the Hayward AquaVac 6 Series had ZERO issues.

In fact, I almost felt like it was alive and could see if it missed something. -ha. That’s how good it cleaned.

To start the cleaning process, I simply placed the pool cleaner in the pool and submerged into the water.

Once the pool cleaner was submerged, I pressed the start button on the control panel. You can also control the pool cleaner from an app on your phone (keep reading, more on that towards the end of the post).

Robotic Pool Cleaner Review

With many industry-first features and functions, including the TouchFree™ Debris Canister that makes clean up effortless, the AquaVac 6 Series cleaners are an ideal solution for pool owners that want a premium cleaner with the latest innovation and smart technology.

What makes this pool cleaner the best pool cleaning robot? The fact that it’s so easy to operate, sucks up all the debris with no issues and is easy to remove from the pool is huge for me.

I am not that technical so while this pool cleaner is super sophisticated and impressive, what matters to me most is the fact that I can actually operate it, it works good and I don’t almost fall into the pool when removing it.

Once the pool cleaner was done cleaning, I simply grabbed the pull handle and removed the cleaner from the pool. Our last pool cleaner did not have a handle and it was very difficult to remove.

The handle on this pool cleaner is by far one of my favorite features! If you have ever removed a pool cleaner full of water from the pool, you know exactly how important a handle is!

  1. I have an older aquavac and have taken it to be repaired 3 times under warranty. Love the warranty but discouraged by the amount of times I had to take it across town. How has it lasted for you now that you have had it for a while?
