Pentair K70405 Kreepy Krauly Classic Inground Automatic Pool Suction is simply the most popular suction-side cleaner. It is fast, dependable, thorough and lasts for years. The easy to install pool suction features turbo action swivel design and regulator valve for maximum cleaning power. Dive float directional system assures optimum cleaning performance from the water line to the pool bottom and walls with minimum supervision. Automatic valve regulates water flow to set the ideal travel speed for more thorough cleaning. It is recommended to adjust the speed of the unit as per individual pool and level of cleanliness required. It has original one moving part design for years of dependable service with no wheels or gears to replace. Large intake throat assures removal of large and small debris and also passes through a larger area.

However, some reviewers noted that the unit gets stuck on steps or on any kind obstructions. This can be solved by installing a twister hose power steering valve to the unit which is easily available online. Though majority of the reviewers said that the unit lasts many years, still there are some who faced the parts wearing out rather quickly and replacing the parts can be quite expensive. Some have also said that their unit does not easily pick up large leaves.

Overall, Pentair K70405 Kreepy Krauly Classic Inground Automatic Pool Suction is an efficient and time saving method to keep the pool clean and dirt free. It is a good value for money and is highly recommended for its quality performance and dependability.
