The promotion of products is an undeniably curious discipline. The ideal is to present the consumer item in a manner that highlights its positive attributes while minimizing any negatives it might possess. You don’t form a sustainable customer base by advertising your product with “Hardly ever breaks!” or “We use cheap materials and pass the savings on to you!” Bearing this in mind, it seems particularly counterintuitive to give products names of dubious virtue. Going through all the trouble to come up with a marketable material, supporting it with a promotional campaign outlining its intrinsic value, and then naming it the Crud Crawler seems destined to disappoint.
Popular pool sweepers tend to take on nautical-sounding names because of the whole water thing. A poolbot called the Maytronics Dolphin DX6 sounds appropriately aquatic and still mechanical enough to get the job done. When it’s time to pool your resources, the Aquabot Supreme is another that sounds like it belongs in your backyard water hole. The Water Tech Pool Blaster Speed Jet evokes images of turbo pool cleaning that might require some engineering background to operate effectively.
What is to be made of something called the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Prowler 820? Beyond questions of what a Pentair is, creepy crawlers are assuredly the kind of things one gets a poolbot to remedy. As to the wisdom of bringing anything known as a prowler into one’s domicile -- that can be debated. Designed for most in-ground pools, it scrubs, vacuums and filters up to the waterline in about 3 hours. It runs on knobby rubber tracks that break up debris which is then sucked into the filtration system, thus increasing water clarity. Easy to maintain with a removable filter cartridge, it has an indicator to let you know when it is ready for some cleaning of its own. With a 60-foot cable and a caddy for transport, drop the Kreepy Krauly Prowler 820 into your 20 x 50 pool and relax as it works its particular magic.
I just drop it in the water, and turn it on. The Prowler runs for the next three hours cleaning the pool bottom and sides.
I've tried several different styles of automatic pool cleaners but nothing worked well until I got the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Prowler 820.
Runs and works great. My customers are always happy with this product.
I got the 820 because I did not need the remote feature. It takes the place of vacuuming.. Great item.
The Prowler 820 features powered tracks for enhanced mobility and its auto-reverse feature reduces hang ups in corners and on steps and ladders.
