Hayward AquaNaut 200 400 & 450 Wheel Hub Black Met (PVX051-236)
The wheel hub (black met) is a replacement part that was made by Hayward. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
This part is designed to spin while allowing the tires to help the cleaner grip and move along the bottom surface of the pool, as well as climb up and down the pool walls. This provides a deeper and more thorough clean for the entire surface of the pool.
Just like the wheel retainer clips, there are 2 of these parts and they are placed two on each side of the cleaner and locked into the lower body. Also, there are wheel bearings on each side that gives it the ability to spin in either direction with ease allowing it to turn and reverse out of trouble areas like the steps or water line. Also, they come in the color black, matching the color scheme of the suction cleaner.
