Hayward Poolvergnuegen Review

Hayward Poolvergnuegen review

The Hayward Poolvergnuegen is a suction pool cleaner available in two or four-wheel drive. It offers several patented and technically advanced features, and it’s one of our favorite suction cleaners we have reviewed so far.

Just like most Hayward pool cleaners, the Poolvergnuegen is made in the USA and is appropriate for small and medium-sized swimming pools. It’s powered by the existing swimming pool pump and filter which means that you don’t have to buy them as an addition because you already have them.

But is this the right pool cleaner for your needs? What’s the price, and what are its most important features? Check it out in our ultimate Hayward Poolvergnuegen review down below.


Poolvergnuegen vs. Aquanaut 200

A lot of people have been asking this question on several online forums. What’s the difference between Hayward’s Poolvergnuegen and Aquanant 200 units? They look quite similar, but the difference between them is the way the suction is adjusted. The Aquanant 200 comes with three throats that you can use to adjust the suction, and the Poolvergnuegen features an adjustable suction bypass. They are both equally effective and if you have a hard time choosing between them, we suggest that you buy the cheaper one.

Turbine vanes

All Hayward pool cleaners feature patented self-adjusting turbines which maximize the power. They are similar to a paddle wheel with blades and they make the pool cleaner work better on lower pressure and suction.

Robust Tire Treads

Tire treads of this pool cleaner are patented and designed for maximum climbing ability and maneuverability. They are appropriate for all pool shapes and surfaces.

Appropriate for

The 2-wheel drive version is appropriate for pools measuring up to 16′ X 32′, and the 4-wheel drive version for pools measuring up to 20′ X 40′. Both of them require a pump with at least 1/2 hp or 35 gpm.
