Hayward SharkVac™

(1 Year Limited Warranty)

 

Product Description

 

SharkVAC is the newest innovation to the TigerShark family of Robotic pool cleaners. Hayward SharkVAC incorporates two fine porosity filtration elements in a sleek floor-specific design. With its unique top access debris chamber and authentic filtration cartridge method, there is no need to turn the cleaner upside down (like all other Robotic cleaners) or hassle with cumbersome and messy bags.

 

 

Hayward SharkVAC is a robust Robotic pool cleaner that is gentle and compatible with all types of pool surfaces. Its scrubbing brush will even work away the most stubborn dirt.

 

Designed with enhanced technologies, Hayward SharkVAC is one of the most economical pool cleaners to operate - equivalent to the energy used by a standard light bulb.

IMPORTANT TIPS

 

 

  • Cleaning the filter cartridge after every use maximizes the unit’s performance.

  • Replace worn brushes.

  • To avoid clogging the SharkVAC’s filter elements, be sure all chemical powders are fully dissolved before operating the cleaner.

  • In a pool with usually high calcium content, more frequent cleaning of the filter is recommended.

  • Save the SharkVAC original carton for extended storage or shipping requirements should your SharkVAC require dealer service.

  • The sealed Motor Unit and the Power Supply contain no user-serviceable parts. Opening them will automatically VOID your warranty.

  • Remove items such as thermometer, toys and the like from the pool before operating the unit. Such items can jam the cleaner and cause damage to the unit and/or your pool. 

 

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. ALWAYS PUT THE MACHINE INTO THE WATER BEFORE CONNECTING IT TO THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET.

  2. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR SWIMMERS’ SAFETY TO REMOVE THE UNIT IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING USE. THIS CAN ALSO IMPROVE THE OPERATING LIFE OF YOU SHARKVAC.

  3. BE CERTAIN THE MACHINE IS ONLY PLUGGED INTO A GROUNDED ELECTRICAL OUTLET EQUIPPED WITH AN APPROVED AND PROPERLY OPERATING GROUND FAUL CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI)

  4. DO NOT HANDLE MACHINE WHILE IT IS PLUGGED INTO THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET.

  5. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD. THIS COULD CREATE A SAFETY HAZARD AND/OR DAMAGE YOUR CLEANER

  6. ALWAYS STAY OUT OF THE POOL WHILE CLEANER IS IN OPERATION.

  7. NEVER ALLOW PLUG TO ENTER THE POOL.

  8. DO NOT OPERATE THE MACHINE OUT OF WATER. THIS WILL DAMAGE THE MOTOR SEAL AND VOID THE WARRANTY.

  9. DO NOT DRAG THE MACHINE OUT OF THE POOL AGAINST THE SIDE WALL. THIS COULD DAMAGE UNIT AND/OR YOUR POOL WALL.

  10. DO NOT BURY CORD. REPLACE DAMAGED CORDS.

  11. WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY, DO NOT PERMIT CHILDREN TO USE THIS PRODUCT UNLESS THEY ARE CLOSELY SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES 

  12. IF THE SUPPLY CORD IS DAMAMGED, IT MUST BE REPLACED BY THE MANUFACTURER, ITS SERVICE AGENT OR SIMILARLY QUALIFIED PERSONS IN ORDER TO AVOID A HAZARD.

 

While the SharkVAC has been made to operate as safely as possible, we suggest you exercise

reasonable care in the handling of the vacuum and inspect the electrical cord frequently for damage or wear, as with any other electrical appliance. After use, remove the unit and rinse with fresh water and remove any twists that may be present in the cord.

TROUBLESHOOTING

 

 

If SharkVAC fails to pick up fine or heavy debris:

  • Clean the filter. It may be clogged. A filter cleaning solution can be used to remove excessive dirt and/or sand

 

If SharkVAC starts working momentarily but then stops working:

  • Impeller may be clogged or jammed with debris. Check and clean if necessary following the instructions in the maintenance section*.

  • Brush roller or drive tracks are stuck. Check for debris and clean if necessary.

  • Cleaner performs by both timing and a pool wall detection sensor, which ever comes first.

  • There are 3 intake ports located at bottom of filter bucket and near the brush roller. Intake ports located next to the roller help collect debris such as leaves and sand better than single intake.

  • Fine debris such as sand may need a smaller intake port for stronger suction. E-VAC can create a stronger suction with a “high velocity flapper” that can be installed at intake port.

  • For the cleaners used in areas that have a lot of sand the cleaner may need to be rinsed with water at all flapper (filter bucket’s flapper is at intake port) areas and may need rinsing at the dome push button to allow free operation.

  • Cleaner may get stuck if a high main drain is installed in the pool. Cleaner may remain lodged on the drain for a short period of time, but will eventually free it’s self by virtue of the cleaner’s embedded program.

  • The filter bucket is designed to be cleaned with the filters installed for normal clean up. For deep cleaning, the user can remove each filter cartridge and clean separately.

  • During the normal operating cycle of the cleaner, the handle side of the unit will rise from the pool bottom to allow the unit to clear obstacles, such as elevated main drains and stair steps.

  • It is normal to see the cleaner ride the wall for a short period of time; this allows the unit to change position in the pool to assure full bottom coverage.

  • Perception of cleaner performance: Confusion may exist over the perception of how the cleaner operates at different times during each cycle. It is important to judge the performance of the cleaner by observing improved pool cleanliness after the cleaner has run a complete cleaning cycle.

  • If a cleaner has poor coverage of the pool in one cycle or only covers a small area, check the filter and clean if necessary and make sure the unit is not getting caught on drains, floor cleaning heads or toys. The user may try starting the cleaner in different locations to find the optimum cleaning location.

  • If debris falls from cleaner while removing from pool, it may be caused by filter overload, increase frequency of filter cleaning. Assure that there is no large debris blocking any of the three intakes. Large debris must be removed from the pool before using machine. If drain flaps are out of place or stuck by sand or leaves in the open position, the flaps can be snapped back into place, after cleaning the area.

  • Avoid dropping or throwing machine into pool. Place cleaner away from the pool wall but do not throw the cleaner in the pool.

  • If the flotation cord gets twisted which can be caused by the cleaner getting stuck on large objects such as rocks, toys or main drains, it can be straightened by laying the flotation cord at full length (if possible) in the sun; heat from the sun will help reduce the twisting.

  • If a high level of debris is visible through the dome windows, remove cleaner quickly from the water to reduce the chance of the debris escaping the filter bucket and re- entering the pool.
