New to the UK market in 2012 is the Zodiac MX8 swimming pool cleaner. It was launched in the US last year and has been getting some great reviews.

The New Zodiac MX8 Swimming Pool Cleaner

The Zodiac MX8 is unique among suction pool cleaners. The first thing you notice is the “tank tracks” at either end of  the unit it moves slowly along on these tracks and when it gets to the wall it just keeps going right on up the wall.

A look at the underside reveals two big circular intakes. These form a cyclone in the water to suck up the debris on the floor.

The internal drive system also means it keeps turning and moving and so it covers all of the floor of your pool (not just the deep end) and it should never get stuck in a corner or on the steps.

It has fewer parts that can wear out than other cleaners and a swivel head so the hose does not get tangled.

With a 2 year warranty we are quite impressed by this little machine.
