We replaced our old and tired sweep with the MX6. It is a very powerful sweep, and regularly cleans the sides of the pool and the steps.

What experts didn't like
The MX6 Zodiac Pool cleaner is not meant for big pools and works well for small ones.
- Vacuum Mania
Speaking of hoses, a fair number of users also complained about the length of hose that comes with the MX6.

The only complaint I have is that the add on filter should be sold with the unit. As it is the debris from the vacuum goes directly into the pump filter and/or main filter without it. You absolutely need the in line filter
- Birdeye
Perpetually stuck and one needs to remove debris after usage
- Pool Cleaner Lab
The disadvantage of the product is that as recorded by some of the customers are that the hoses that come along with the product are quite less in quantity and with at a time, one requires to buy more hoses to carry out the proper working of the product.
- Best Pool Advisor
Some complained that the cleaner clogged up when attempting to vacuum large piles of debris, while a few others mentioned that after a few months of usage, their MX6 stopped working completely.
