Hello ePoolSupply supporters and fellow blog enthusiasts. Back with you all again to go over a particular suction side cleaner but more importantly a couple of its many parts. The cleaner I am referring to is the Hayward Wanda The Whale and the parts we are going to go over are the Wing and Pod Kit part #’s (Wing Kit AXV552WHP) (Pod Kit AXV417WHP). These parts are vital to cleaners’ success rate of pulling multiple forms of dirt and debris from the bottom surface of your pool.
Hayward Wanda the Whale Suction Side Pool Cleaner!
In the tradition of the AquaBug, Wanda the Whale turbine cleaners are designed to clean the bottom of all sizes and shapes of above-ground or in-ground pools automatically. They operate off the pool's existing filtration system and feature Hayward's exclusive SmartDrive program steering so it won't miss a spot. Performance, price, and proven reliability make these cleaners the clear choice for automatic pool cleaners.
• Installs in less than 10 minutes, without tools.
• The unique turbine/gearing system provides constant balanced water flow assuring quiet operation and gentle movement across the pool bottom.
• Improves water circulation by pulling water from the pool bottom as it moves.
• Deluxe bumper ring minimizes friction for easy movement away from walls and resumption of the programmed steering pattern.
• Includes 32 feet of hose.
What is the Purpose of the Wing and Pod Kit?
This wing kit was created to help aid the cleaner with its suction capabilities and how effective the cleaner can be at removing dirt and other various forms of debris from the surfaces of the pool. The wings were designed to clip on the sides of the pod kit (which are the objects that precisely move the cleaner along the surface) and are given the freedom of their own to move up and down to conform to the surface which helps maximize the suction of the cleaner. This pod kit was designed to replace the main parts required for the cleaner to operate effectively. These parts are what help provide the suction cleaner with the power and ability to maneuver around the surfaces of the pool as it cleans. The pod screw kit also works in correlation with this group of parts, by keeping them locked into the sides of the open lower body.
Over time these parts 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 these parts but all the other wearable parts periodically for any wear or damage that can directly affect the way Wanda 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).
