One Year-Review and Recommendation

The Zodiac MX6 Pool Cleaner is a compact and smaller version of the MX8, making it perfect for small to medium-sized Australian pools. The wheels turn in only one direction which reduces the wear and tear of the gears, extending the maintenance schedule.

Unlike many automatic pool cleaners, the MX6 has no problems with getting stuck with your pool's main drain. It moves very well around the pool and the swiveling action allows it to get out of any tight corners where other cleaners will get stuck.

We've had the MX6 for over a year now and so far no parts have needed replacement which is a good thing. But in case something breaks or needs replacement, you can always check out our collection of Zodiac MX6 Spare parts to get it back to tip-top shape in no time.

While the MX6 is advertised as being compatible with variable speed pumps, we found that it had a little bit of trouble operating when the pump speed was set to low. The good thing though is that you can still use the MX6 with your variable speed pump on high, and let the flow regulator valve adjust the pressure for perfect cleaning every single time.
