It just moves around all of the surfaces of pool and will completely clean just about any size above ground pools in a few hours.
You will not need to worry about needing any additional complicated plumbing to add it to your existing system. It attaches easily to your current skimming setup using the 32’ hose. The included hose will allow the Ranger to reach every part of the pool, even if you have dished out area. Note: As long as the dished out portion does not exceed 6’, any more than that the hose may not reach.To help prevent the Ranger from getting caught on stairs or other obstacles during the cleaning operation, it was designed with a very large deflector wheel. That way you don’t need to stand around and watch it all the time so you can rescue it if it gets stuck, like many other models on the market.It also comes with a one year limited warranty, so if you have a busy swimming season and wear it out before the year is up, you will be covered.

What are people saying about it?
During our research of the Baracuda W01698 Ranger Suction Side Automatic Above-Ground Pool Cleaner we discovered a couple dozen consumer reviews posted online. Most of the reviewers really like it and gave it either four or five stars. There were only three people that were not very happy with it and gave it very poor marks.
The simple setup the Ranger is one of the things just about everyone that posted a review mentioned. It only took a few minutes go from box to cleaning their pool and the instructions were very easy to follow.
The included 32 foot hose was plenty long enough to reach the bottom and sides of a 27’ pool and as long as you remember not to store the hose coiled up when not using it you will not experience many issues of it stalling in the same spot.
As compared to other brands, the Ranger was far superior and it was able to reach just about every little nook and cranny of their pool.
Many of the reviewers were really happy with the fact that it worked with their brand of pool, however, we did find one reviewer that did not find this to be the case. They had what they believe to be a pool from a top maker of above ground pools and it did not work with their filter system. They were finally able to buy enough aftermarket plumbing fittings to get it to work.
In the end, most of the reviewers said that they would highly recommend the Baracuda W01698 Ranger Suction Side Automatic Above-Ground Pool Cleaner to anyone with an above ground pool.
