What’s up ePoolSupply supporters and blog enthusiasts! Today we will yet again be going over another low maintenance, high quality pool cleaner manufactured by Pentair. This is considered to be one of if not the best built aboveground pool cleaners on the market due to its low maintenance design and time tested-tested platform as Pentair’s most popular suction-side cleaner in history: the Kreepy Krauly Inground Pool Cleaner.
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 80's 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 E-Z Vac

This cleaner comes with a standard Two-year warranty provided by Pentair which is awesome! However, the Suction Seal, Foot Pad, Wings, Bumper Strap, and Seal Flaps are only covered by a One-year warranty. The reason for this limited portion of the warranty is because they are considered wear and tear items.
