Choosing a Hammerhead Pool Cleaner

Hammerheads are by far our best selling pool cleaner. This post attempts to answer the most common questions our customers have!

Service Units, For Pool Cleaning Professionals


Service Unit shown with trailer mount. Note the extra braces on the frame.

The service units are designed for pool to pool service route work. The popular Service-21 is now the industry standard for a self-contained cleaner. Instant cleaning means no set-up times, no pumps to prime, and no valves to set. You’ll work faster and easier than ever before. Ready to mount on your truck or trailer, the Service-21 can cut your cleaning time as much as 50%. That can mean hours off your day.


Resort Units, For When the Unit Will Remain on Site


Resort Unit shown. Functionally the same as the Service Unit, but note the lack of trailer mount and minor differences in the cart construction.

The resort units are designed for maintenance work where the unit will be left on site. The popular Resort-30 is the choice of YMCA, hotel, condo, resort, military and water park pool managers nationwide. Resorts units are NOT compatible with the truck-trailer mount system.

The Resort-30 can cut your cleaning time by as much as 50%.


Replacement Vacuum Heads


Replacement heads are available without carts.

The “replacement” Hammerhead vacuum heads are many times used as stand alone Hammerhead cleaners when a cart is not necessary. Be aware that they do not include the electrical connections present on the complete units.
