Hello ePoolSupply supporters and fellow blog enthusiasts. Back with you all again to go over a particular suction side cleaner but more importantly one of its many parts. The cleaner I am referring to is the Hayward PoolVac V-Flex and the part we are going to go over is the wing kit (part #AXV604-237). These wings help channel the water carrying dirt and debris to the suction cleaners center nozzle. This way it can be removed from the surface of your pool leaving behind a crystal clear path.
Hayward PoolVac V-Flex
PoolVac V-Flex automatic suction pool cleaner delivers more power, reliability, and performance than ever. Equipped with patented V-Flex variable vane turbine technology, PoolVac V-Flex can pick up larger dirt and debris more effectively than any other cleaner on the market for peace of mind of clog-free cleaning. It maximizes suction power even at lower flow-making it the perfect partner for use with variable speed pumps. Its unmatched patented AquaPilot programmed steering determines the most efficient cleaning path around any pool and assists with cleaner maneuverability for the most reliable, complete pool coverage.
What is the Purpose of the Wing Kit?
This wing kit was created to help aid the cleaner with its suction capabilities and how effective the cleaner can be at removing any dirt and other various forms of debris from the surfaces of the pool. The wings were designed to clip on the sides of the pods (which are the objects that help move the cleaner along the surface) and are given the freedom of their own to move up and down to conform to the surface that maximizes the suction channel of the PoolVac V-Flex cleaner.
Over time the wing kit will deteriorate from use and the elements that present themselves outside daily or they may even come loose. It is always best to check not only this product but all the other wearable parts periodically for any wear or damage that can directly affect the way the PoolVac V-Flex operates.
In conclusion, Hayward makes a great line of products and when it comes to the basic rules for taking care of your pool, keeping it clean is most often the first thing that comes to your mind. Clean pools are inviting for the likes of all. Hayward’s reliable pool cleaners provide pool owners with peace of mind and total relaxation. Cleaners vacuum and scrub the floor and coves of the pool so you don’t have to (although you still need to brush the walls from time to time).
