Hey there ePoolSupply supporters and blog enthusiasts! Back here again with yet another awesome blog about a great and highly recommended suction-side pool cleaner manufactured by Pentair known as the Kreepy Krauly Rebel (Head) (Part #360486). You won’t find a suction-side cleaner on the market that will work harder than the Kreepy Krauly line of suction cleaners. You can put this cleaner in your inground pool, and you will most certainly win the battle against leaves, sand, dirt, and other various forms of hard-to-clean debris.
Brief History of the Kreepy Krauly Series Line
The first Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner was invented in the year 1974 by a gentleman named Ferdinand Chauvier. Ferdinand was a hydraulic engineer from South Africa and dabbled in the pool industry whenever possible. The product became very popular in the state of Florida during the ‘80s when the Kreepy Krauly-sponsored race car won the Daytona 24 race in 1984. Soon after that in 1999, it was purchased by Pac-Fab (A leader in the pool industry) and then later by Pentair. They then decided to expand the product line beyond the traditional Kreepy Krauly suction-side pool cleaner and transform it into the series name it is today.
Key Features of the Kreepy Krauly Rebel (Head)
This cleaner’s two-wheeled design and programmed steering maneuver the Kreepy Krauly Rebel around your pool decisively, conquering 90-degree floor-to-wall angles, shallow to deep bottoms, and hard-to-reach corners. It is ready to deploy quickly, all you must do is set it and forget it. Warrior’s sleek, modern design looks great in any pool environment. Because this is just the cleaner head means that it does not come with any hoses or accessory package that is normally included with the purchase of the full unit. This product was designed for customers who do not want to go through the process of replacing parts on their older unit yet still have hoses and accessories that are in good shape. This provides a cheaper option without having to spend more money on a full complete unit which I know a lot of us are always looking for. Adjustments will need to be made to your equipment for these new units to operate correctly as improvements and specs have been changed throughout the years so, this is not just a plug-in and drop especially if you are replacing an older unit.
- Sure-Flow turbine design allows dirt and debris to easily pass through the Warrior, avoiding clogging common with other two-wheel cleaners
- Servicing is quick and easy with the Warriors Quick-Release Latch
- Warrior’s two-wheel design allows fast, agile cleaning, even in tight or hard-to-reach spaces
- Roller Skirt maneuvers up and over most obstacles for uninterrupted cleaning
You've always been able to count on the quality and long service life of Pentair products. Pentair uses state-of-the-art workmanship, materials, and manufacturing processes to create the most innovative pool and spa equipment anywhere. Because of this Pentair backs this specific inground suction-side pool cleaner with a 1-year limited warranty. However, the tires as well as the rollers are only covered by a 90-day warranty because they are considered to be wear and tear items. (Automatic cleaners purchased in the USA from entities outside the USA do not qualify for any warranty)
In conclusion, the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Rebel is an ideal cleaner for most in-ground suction side pools. It is reasonably priced for the functionality of the cleaner and can provide you with a maintenance simplified pool! It can conquer various forms of dirt and debris with ease regardless of the surrounding climate which should leave your pool looking crystal clear and ready to use at a moment’s notice year-round.
