For a good pool cleaner, you can’t go wrong with Zodiac. That’s why, in this review, you’re going to learn all about the Zodiac Baracuda G3 Kit Suction Pool Cleaner, and what it offers.

Zodiac Baracuda G3 Kit Suction Pool Cleaner Review

Right off the bat, you’ll notice that this suction pool cleaner has a fairly unique design. It doesn’t like many other pool cleaners, and the reason for that is because it uses a finned disc, which allows the pool cleaner to move across your pool, and to remove whatever is in its path.

When this finned disc is combined with the blue aesthetic, it leads to a suction pool cleaner that looks quite unique.

In order for you to use this suction pool cleaner, you need to connect the pool cleaner to your pool’s pressure system.

By doing this, the pool cleaner will then be able to move across your pool, as it will be powered by the pressure that is coming through the pool, into the suction line, and then through the pool cleaner.

What’s really nice about this pool cleaner, though, is that it includes all of the tools and devices that you’ll need to do that, without having to deal with any issues.

Plus, it also includes something known as the “FlowKeeper Valve”, and what this valve does is it regulates the amount of water that is flowing through the pool cleaner. That way, it’s able to maintain peak performance that is consistent and steady, regardless of how powerful your pool pump is.

Every suction pool cleaner is capable of cleaning certain surfaces and areas within a swimming pool. Using this suction pool cleaner, you’re able to clean the floors of your swimming pool, the walls of your swimming pool, as well as the stair steps that lead into the swimming pool.

This is in direct contrast to many other suction pool cleaners, which only allow you to clean the floors of a swimming pool, rather than those other surfaces.

While this suction pool cleaner is moving across the surfaces within your pool, it uses something known as the “Wheel Deflector”. What the Wheel Deflector does is it allows the suction pool cleaner to rotate and turn so that it can move across tight and narrow areas, including moving into corners.

More importantly, it also allows the suction pool cleaner to continue moving at a brisk pace, which prevents it from getting stuck or lodged into one area of your pool’s surface.

On the suction pool cleaner, there is the finned disc, and this finned disc aids in the mobility of the suction pool cleaner. As the suction pool cleaner is moving across your pool, the finned disc encompasses a large cleaning area and is capable of gathering up all of the dirt and gunk that happens to be within your pool.

Plus, it’s also capable of loosening up things like dirt and moss that have stuck to the surfaces within your pool, and this makes it easier for those materials to be removed.

Much of what makes this suction pool cleaner excellent is the fact that it offers so much power and efficiency. Through the use of the FlowKeeper Valve, suction is maintained throughout the entirety of the suction pool cleaner, at all times, and this allows for the overall pool cleaning experience to be fast and efficient.

With the finned disc, all of the dirt and gunk that the pool cleaner comes into contact with is removed in an almost effortless manner.

While all of that is happening, the suction pool cleaner is nice and quiet, which is something that most suction pool cleaners don’t offer.

This lack of sound makes the pool cleaning process easier, and along with that, it’s also easy for you to set up the pool cleaner, as everything comes pre-built and there is no need for you to operate or maintain any of the different facets or design elements of this pool cleaner.

If there is a single flaw with this suction pool cleaner, though, it’s the fact that the plastic tube that gathers up the removed materials isn’t that strong.

It’s easy for leaves and pebbles to get stuck in it, but it’s easy to clean the tube out, though.
