The Zodiac® Ranger® pool cleaner is simply the most affordable, efficient and dependable automatic pool cleaner you can buy. This powerful Above Ground cleaner features the same technology as its in-ground cousin, the Baracuda G3®. With only one moving part, the Long-Life Diaphragm, there are no gears, wheels, or flappers ensuring a quiet, simple operation with less maintenance and without the annoying hammering noise that other pool cleaners make. Also, the diaphragm efficiently enables this cleaner to remove debris, bugs, twigs leaves and even pebbles! The extra large wheel deflectors help the Zodiac® Ranger® navigate swimming pool obstacles like steps, ladders and corners so it keeps cleaning your pool without interruption.
