After installing a 14×28 11,000 gallon in ground pool 5 years ago, (using the common in Florida 15 year vinyl liner type, but with reinforced fiberglass walls behind liner and cement floor under liner, and 5 ft fiberglass steps), we followed all advice forums offered to keep pool clean. It’s tough in hot Florida, (no screen enclosure), where water temperature is near 90 seven months out of the year.

Was going through two 2.5 gallon jugs of liquid chlorine a week. Have an Energy Saver 2 speed pump, but on low speed, even after 12 hours a day, pool would be nasty after only a couple days. Ended up having to run the Energy Efficient pump on high speed 6 hours a day, and even then, pool was never really clean looking. Suffered like this for 4 years, and the pool was already starting to show signs of wearing out.

Bought the Barracuda G3 on sale, mainly because I was tired of cleaning pool every other day. I would kick myself if I could. Should have had this from day 1. Writing this review after 10 months of use, so that to me, is accurate of what to expect. The G3 is connected and in the pool 24/7, unless we are in the pool, then we remove it. It has enabled us to run the pool pump on high speed for only 3 hours a day. No other work is needed. Chlorine use dropped to less than a jug a week, or less than 1/2 of what we used before. The lower chlorine use saves us about $20 a month, and the lower electrical usage for the pump saves us another $20 a month or a total of $40 a month! The best part is the pool now looks like new again. I never need to brush it or do anything except occasionally empty the pump basket. 3 hours a day of G3 takes care of it all. While it has no problems going from the deep end 6ft depth to shallow ends 3ft depth, it does not stay on the side walls very long, perhaps only for about 6 feet at a time before moving back to bottom cleaning.

The hose would go into 3 step area and cause the G3 to hang. Solution was to hang a small one foot wide PVC board from end of steps grab rail. The hose “loop” now hits this board, and instead of going into step area, it forces hose out, which then keeps the G3 moving along fine.
