The Hayward Tigershark robotic pool cleaner has been updated with a new design and model numbers for the year 2016. We think the updated design looks really well. Its internal functions are the same as the previous designs (models RC9950GR and RC9990GR), so the new models perform just as good as the previous models.
There are three new models to choose from: the Tigershark Standard RC9950CUB, the Plus RC9955CUB with remote control and the QC RC9990CUB with a quick cleaning option. Our Hayward Tigershark review considers these robotic pool cleaner models.
Tigershark Standard RC9950CUB
This robotic pool cleaner has the basic 3-hour cleaning cycle for cleaning inground swimming pools with gunite, fiberglass, pebble, tile or vinyl surfaces. Maximum pool size is about 20 feet by 40 feet.
It has a 55-foot power cord and a 115-volt power supply unit. The robotic pool cleaner is powered by an energy efficient 24-volt motor. Its cartridge filters are easy to clean. However, the standard style pool cleaner has neither a quick clean program nor a remote control.
Does it get stuck on the main drain?
Yes, it does get stuck on the main drain. Problems with navigating main drains are the only big complaint. This is unfortunately a problem for most pool cleaners, not just the Tigershark.
Can it clean the walls and stairs?
It is designed to clean the walls and the waterline of an inground swimming pool. However, different pools might produce different results, so there is not complete certainty about anything, is there?
Does the RC9950CUB include a caddy cart?
No, you have to buy a caddy cart for the Tigershark pool cleaner. It is not included as an accessory. However, it is not absolutely necessary. The caddy cart only makes the robotic pool cleaner, power cord and power supply easier to move and store. Only buy it if you can afford to pay an extra 100 dollars to get it.
Tigershark Plus RC9955CUB
This is the same as the standard model, but it includes a remote control. Not much else to say about it. You should buy this model if you want the remote control. We do not think that the remote control is an absolute necessity. Save a few dollars and buy one of the other Tigershark models.
Tigershark QC RC9990CUB
This model gives you the option of selecting a 90-minute quick cleaning cycle in addition to the standard 3-hour cycle. It does not have a remote control.
Hayward Tigershark: Does it eat the dirt?
This Hayward robotic pool cleaner will clean the pool. The majority of owners are satisfied with its performance. It eats the dirt. It is then up to you to clean the filter cartridge. The filter cartridge is easy to clean.
The power cable might tangle up now and then and need some untangling. Lock the handle in the opposite position so the cable gets untangled while the pool cleaner is moving around the pool.
