Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G Letro Legend Features
Lightweight – The Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G weighs a mere 22.7lbs. This lightweight design allows you for easier portability to and from the swimming pool.
High-capacity debris bag – The large debris bag means the device can handle the toughest of cleaning jobs. It also means you don’t have to empty the bag often. With that said, we recommend purchasing the extra leaf mesh bag if you want to remove large leaves from the pool.
Drive – The Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G Letro Legend uses treaded wheels for superior grip as the device cleans. By using four wheels, the cleaner stays upright and doesn’t fall over like other machines. The device is also powered by a front-wheel drive for even more stability. Both of these features allow the device to climb inclined surfaces in your swimming pool.
Rear scrubbers – The Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G features rear scrubbing technology to remove stubborn dirt before it gets vacuumed inside.
Vacuum – The Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G has a peripheral booster pump that uses a vacuum to suck-up loose debris. The addition of a large throat allows for large pieces of debris to be taken in with ease.
Quick cycle – The Pentair Kreepy Krauly will clean your pool in just 1-3 hours depending on the size.
Back valve – Back-pressure valves dispense water jets from the back to keep it moving.
In the box – Pool cleaner head, Sand & silt bag, Sweep hose, and Feed hose (30ft)
We hope you have enjoyed our Pentair Legend LL505G review. To sum up, this is a reliable device that comes with a range of cool features to give a great clean in just 3 hours.
I love how the cleaner is able to remove large pieces of debris, like small sticks. This isn’t typical of every pool cleaner on the market. It’s great how the Legend is able to clean in-ground vinyl, concrete, and fiberglass pools. The only slight annoyance is that you may need to purchase a booster pump separately if you do not already own one.
Does it need a booster pump installation?
The Pentair Kreepy Krauly LL505G Legend needs water pressure in order to work. As such, you will need a booster pump to provide the needed pressure. If you already have a 3/4 horsepower booster pump, that should do the job. If not, get yourself a Pentair booster pump. The LA01N 3/4 Horsepower Booster Pump and the Boost-Rite One Horsepower Booster Pump are both recommend by Pentair.
Does the Legend need maintenance?
Now, if you use the pool cleaner on rarely, you shouldn’t have to make any replacements. But if you’re cleaning your pool on a daily basis, you may have to make the follow adjustments.
Pentair recommends emptying the filter bag when it reaches half capacity. Although you can let the bag fill-up more, emptying it regularly will maximize the machine’s efficiency.
The next most important thing to look out for is the filter screen. This screen is the last line of defence of blocking debris from getting into the cleaner head, so it needs to be unblocked. It’s just a case of rinsing off the dirt. You should also keep an eye on the sweep hose sponges that can wear out from frequent use.
What pool surfaces can the Legend clean?
The Pentair Kreeply Krauly Legend pool cleaner can clean pool surfaces made of concrete, tiles and vinyl-lined.
