Great little addition to our pool devices
This little gadget works very well. It sucks items off the bottom of the pool with ease. Just wish the filter was a little bigger. I have a 11k gal pool and I empty the filter three times usually when vacuuming. I was pleasantly surprised with its performance. Lite weight. Full charge after each use. It reminds me so much of my little hand held household vacuum. No hoses are always a plus!

Definitely Catfished
I recently purchase this after the fires and ashes were covered on the bottom of my above ground pool. The item said it picks up dirt and all it did was spread the dirt back through water in a cloud... given that it does pick up big leaves but after 30 seconds of moving it in the water the clear plastic piece falls off and the leaves fall out the filter! Not recommended for dirt only big leaves if they find a way to lock and secure the plastic piece!

CATFISH VACUUM

Verified purchase

The catfish vacuum is awesome, its independent from your pool pump/filter. However, I think the design is made poor. Where you insert the pole is very weak plastic and if you're too ruff with it underwater I could see it cracking.. Happy Pool Vacuuming!!!!

Great spot vacuum to have handy.

Verified purchase

Ive owned these vacuums for about 11 years. I overcharged my last one causing me to recently replace it. Walmarts price was far below its competitors so I quickly bought a another. The unit isnt designed for big jobs, although it you have the patience, itll work. I use it mostly for spot cleaning, particularly where my underwater robot misses spots in the pool. I highly recommend it.

Loving it so far.

Verified purchase

I've had it about a week and used it 3-4 times on one battery charge. This is for a 10 ft x 30 in. above-ground pool that we use for our dogs. It sucks up dog hair and fine particles. This weekend I'll use the extra fine filter to see if it will capture the fine dust off the bottom that we get here in Arizona. Get a long handle at a pool store or big box store.

Powerful for it sized

Verified purchase

Small but powerful enough for my above pool 10×10 , it's light weight battery last enough for me clean my pool. The only I rate 4 star because it came without a pole I have to spent more money buying a pole. A cheaper pole I got still cost me $22 . 5star for me if this unit came with a pole.

tiny filter, difficult to clean but good price

Verified purchase

I had the Ryobi pool vacuum and it stopped working after 1 year. This far cheaper option seems pretty good although the filter bag is seriously small. I thought that the Ryobi was small this requires multiple emptying just to get the debris from the sauna after a small wind storm ...also the neck covering the filter is difficult to turn. I would not suggest this vacuum for elderly or those with a weak grip.

Vacuum Gets the Job Done

Verified purchase

I like that it is small and easy to use. I also like that the battery lasts for several vacuums. Only thing I didn't like is it does not come with a poll. Fortunately, we had one that would work. Overall, it was a good buy.

Pain in the....

Verified purchase

It clogs up every couple of min. If using the sleeves (nylons?) for small/fine debris it is really hard to open and remove the compartment to clean every other min. Had to take the sleeves off because I couldn't open it and you have to clean them or you lose suction. Very hard to open and close to remove debris. It blows the debris all around and caused a huge mess.

Pool Vacuum Disappointment

Verified purchase

I read the other reviews and was border line on buying this. But we needed a vacuum and it was the only one available at the time. PLEASE don't waste your time and money. This is a huge disappointment, its performance for a lack of better words was very poor. Did I mention this was for an above ground pool.

1. Yes it does come with a charger. But beware if you have one of the cheaper leaf skimmers with the silver aluminum pole it will not fit this vacuum you will need to buy the professional type of telescoping pole to fit this device.

4. Good Afternoon, Provided with the purchase of the Catfish you are given everything you need. It comes with 2 micro filter bags that are to be used to collect the finer debris. However the only separate purchase if necessary would be a sand and silt filter bag. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at Stephanie@watertechcorp.com or 251-876-0943 ext 122. Thank You for your time. Best Regards, Stephanie Smith Customer Care Agent
