Arneson Auto Pool Cleaners
Most Common Hayward Pool Cleaner Parts
In business for over 80 years, Hayward is a major player in all things pool. In the 1980's Hayward purchased the Arneson pool cleaner technology and began creating their own automatic pool cleaners, the Pool Vac and later the Navigator. Other suction cleaners followed during the 90's.
In 2007, Hayward got into the growing robotic pool cleaner business with the purchase of the AquaVac company, and began producing the Hayward Tiger Shark, and then the Shark Vac.
Now, all they needed was a pressure cleaner, to go against Polaris and Letro brands. Engineers went to work and created the Hayward Phantom and Viper pool cleaners. There have been some problems with these cleaners, and currently Hayward is phasing out these two models.
Here's the List - the most common Hayward pool cleaner parts - parts for the Navigator, Tiger Shark and Phantom pool cleaners by Hayward.
Tiger Shark Filter Cartridge Replacement Set - RCX70101
The Tiger Shark pool cleaner uses pleated filter cartridges to trap debris and filter the water moving through the robotic pool cleaner. This is a bit of departure from other robot pool cleaners, which use a filter bag to catch the debris.
Cleaning your filter cartridges regularly can help to extend their life. The best time to clean these cartridges is after the cleaner has run it's cycle. Acidic debris, chemicals and live bugs can damage the polyester material, if you allow the cleaner cartridges to sit dirty for very long.
Tiger Shark filter cartridges are subject to a similar replacement schedule as pool filter cartridges. Generally, replace Tiger Shark cartridges after 2-3 seasons, or if the fabric breaks away from the edges, or develops holes.
Tiger Shark Drive Belt - RCX23002
The drive belt, it's like a tank track, wrapping around 2 pulleys, one in the center top, and is attached to the end of each wheel tube. As the motor engages inside of the Tiger Shark, the drive pully pushes the belt forward, which spins the wheel tubes.

Do auto or robotic home and above ground pool vacuum cleaners work?
I have the home vac (the Sage - which is designed for pet hair) and LOVE it. Now, I only have a cat - not a dog but it works great!!! This is my 2nd Roomba & I am hooked. I too, am looking into the pool vac. So far, have read great reviews.
Good luck. P.S. Roomba support is wonderful & if not satisfied, return policy is great & easy.
