Pentair 360228 Kreepy Krauly Racer Pressure-Side Inground Pool Cleaner

Since 1975, Pentair has been at the forefront of the pool cleaning industry. Today, we’re taking a look at one of their products, the Kreepy Kraunly Racer.


Night Cruize LEDs

The Night Cruize feature of the Racer allows you to see what's around the house at night using its built-in LEDs.

Watching the robot go to work at night is pretty cool, but it doesn’t do anything to improve its performance or underwater maneuverability.


Quad-Jet Technology

Unlike robots, pressure-side pool cleaners don’t have electric motors. Instead, they rely on booster pumps to provide waterflow and pressure.

The Racer is equipped with four jets that work together to allow it to scale walls and transition seamlessly from one place to another.


4 Wheels

The Pentair 360228 Kreepy Krauly Racer has four wheels, which allows it to move around the pool without getting stuck. Another feature that makes this model stand out is its steady suction throat.

The front wheels are painted in Steady-Grip Traction. This means that the tire tread is designed to evenly distribute the weight of the wheel, which helps in cleaning the pool floor.


Front Brushroll

The front-spinning brushroll of the Racer is designed to remove algae, dirt, and debris from your pool’s lining. It uses a patented design to remove these obstacles.

The Racer is a great tool for removing algae and dirt patches, but it tends to miss certain areas when it gets too heavy.


Wide Throat

The Pentair Racer is a pressure-side pool cleaner that features a wider throat that allows large debris to flow through. This unit is ideal for use in shallow pool areas.

The only downside to this system is that it doesn't have pressure per square inch of contact, which could make it harder to remove small dirt piles.


Sweep Tail

The rear part of the Pentair 360228 is where the Sweep Tail works. It draws water through the tail to dislodge algae from the bottom part of the unit.

The Tail is powered by a raw waterflow pressure, which means it’s prone to hitting the mark eventually. However, it’s also not designed to be operated by anything other than a pool cleaner.



The Krauly Racer is a dual-jet pool cleaner that works seamlessly with any booster pump. Its flexible design allows it to clean a wider surface area in less time.
