Pentair Kreepy Krauly Prowler 910


Design & Accessories

Compact, sporting a low-profile, it will easily fit into any above-ground basin, quickly accessing all corners and angles. Although a tad heavier than other units, 27 lbs, it is still light enough to offer a hassle-free retrieval from the water, as well as facile maneuverability when placed in the equipment storage room. The casing sports an elegant color scheme, of dark grey, white and blue, whereas the sturdy material protects the unit from external harm, and varying water temperatures. Thus it can function in both heated water as well as cold basins. To facilitate a secure grip, the unit sports a front-placed handle. It is integrated into the robot, therefore fixed, so the robot will never slip through your hands.

Compared to other units that simply vacuum, Prowler 910 utilizes a wide brush roll. It spins as the unit advances, the plated bristles gentle enough not to damage the inner lining, yet forceful enough to dislodge and remove any blocked grime. So, you won’t have to manually brush or sweep the pool beforehand, as it will do it for you. Once the goo has been removed, it is instantly transported into the media basket. Lined with fine mesh, it will capture and detain particles as little as 2 microns, impeding their return into the water. It is also easily accessible through the top of the unit, so you’ll be able to immediately clean it up once the cleaning cycle is done.

To navigate underwater, the unit utilizes continuous tracks, which, unlike other units are following a particular design. Instead of being flat, the overall path they take resembles a right-angled triangle, the front angle placed higher than the end angle to provide additional support. This ensures the unit will never slip, nor is there any possibility for it to flip on its back. Additionally, the small indentations on the tracks assure extensive grip over the floor, the robot never slipping on the surface indifferent to how much goo there might be.

For increased accuracy and precision when dealing with smaller basins, including hot tubs and spas, you can use a handheld vacuum

Performance & Functions

Even though it includes no remote nor weekly timer, the unit sports a fast performance followed by excellent quality. The cleaning cycle won’t take longer than 90 minutes, and the unit will stop by itself as soon as the time is up. Therefore you don’t have to keep an eye on it as it works, and you also don’t have to wait too long to enjoy the pool. Just make sure to remove any water toys or pool alarms from the basin.

Although its vacuuming stops at the floor, it will thoroughly clean it, missing no spot in its path, due to its pre-programmed smart cleaning system. Additionally, compared to other units it works silently, so you don’t have to worry about it bothering your neighbors, indifferent to what hour you plan on using it. Since it’s part of the Eco Select branch, it sports an economical performance, as well as an eco-friendly operation. It needs as less as 5 cents to operate, therefore it won’t increase the annual electricity costs. Even more, due to its wide range action perimeter, it will promote proper chemicals distribution, aiding in securing the water balance as well as improving the overall water circulation. This ensures algae and other bacteria are kept away from the water and pool walls.

For an eco-friendly way of balancing the water, an ionizer paired with an ozonator will actively fight against algae and bacteria formation, ensuring sensitive skin and eyes aren’t affected.

Maintenance

The overall maintenance couldn’t be easier, as the unit requires just regularly cleaning the media basket. Simply clean it with a strong water jet, and it will be as good as new. Also, in case you need help with any issues that might appear during its utilization process, the manufacturer provides a 60-day warranty, as well as a friendly customer support service. However, if you wish to prolong its lifespan, keep an eye on how the water fares. If it has an odd color or a cloudy aspect, refrain from inserting the robot into the pool, otherwise it will get damaged. Additionally, check the water balance and make sure the chlorine level and pH levels are within normal limits, otherwise the corrosive aspect of the water will prematurely deteriorate the casing. Alkalinity is also another element you should carefully keep under observation, as deposits will appear on the robot, resulting in faulty operation.

For saltwater pools, a salt chlorinator cell is a must-have, as it will preserve the sanitization function of chlorine, reducing the harsh after-effects on skin and eyes.

Final Thoughts

Easy to use, Kreepy Krauly Prowler 910 offers a facile way of keeping your above-ground basin in top shape. Although it lacks more advanced functions present in other units, this doesn’t deter it from taking its job seriously, leaving the floor sparkly-clean. Fast in its cleaning, and thorough in debris removal, you’ll benefit from more time spent with your family instead of moments wasted to clean the basin.
