Water Tech is the same company that has brought to our backyards the Aqua Broom, The Grit Gitter, the Blue Diamond Line, the Pool Blaster and the Pool Blaster Max. The Catfish was designed with the most advanced technology and the best engineers in the industry. Water Tech as been providing pool owners with their great products for over 40 years.

The Catfish is one of the most efficient pool cleaners on the market. The Catfish is powerful and can help you clean your pool in half the time it would take if you were to use the traditional vacuum head and vacuum pole. The Catfish has a rechargeable Battery Pack located in the unit’s motor box rather than the flashlight-style  “D” cells used by the Aqua Broom.

This may not sound like such a powerful machine but don’t let the size or the batteries fool you. There are some swimming pool cleaning systems that have cords that you end up either stepping on, tripping on or maybe accidentally kicking into the swimming pool. But the Pool Blaster Catfish does not require hoses or any kind or cords of any kind. That is the beauty of the battery-powered swimming pool cleaner. By using the Catfish swimming pool cleaning system you will start saving money on your energy bills in no time.

How Makes the Catfish different than the other Pool Cleaners?

Not only does the Catfish run on efficient and less money it will take to run other pool cleaning systems but the Pool Blaster Catfish by Water tech offers a high water flow pump that allows the Catfish to work on the toughest underwater messes. The Catfish uses its patented Max Cine Technology.

This is a system that will allow the Catfish to pack in all of the dirt and debris that it does pick up. This leaves more room in the filter bag. This eliminates having to clean the bag in the middle of a pool cleaning. The All Purpose Bag is easy to empty and it doesn’t require you to put your hands into the bag as other cleaners do.

Where can I use my Catfish?

The Pool Blaster Catfish is a versatile machine. It can be used on above ground or in-ground swimming pools. It can be used on spas or hot tubs. The Catfish won’t rip or wear out any of pool liner or spa wall or floor. You can use the Catfish by Water Tech in a children’s pool too.

How long does a battery charge take for an Aqua Broom?

You should plan on changing the Catfish’s battery a full 6 to 8 hours for a full charge. If you know you are going to vacuum the pool for a party or event, leave the day before to allow for a full battery charge.

What are the benefits of using a Pool Blaster Catfish Pool Cleaner?

The Pool Blaster Catfish Swimming Pool Cleaner is a cost effective way to clean your swimming pool. Without the use of cords or hoses, you don’t have to connect the Catfish to your swimming pool filter system. All you do is place the Catfish in the water and turn on the switch. Another benefit is that you can clean your entire pool in less than an hour. There are no vacuum heads, hoses or poles to contend with. Everything is right there in one contained machine. The cost is affordable and you can even ship around on different websites to find the best price available. The Catfish will make a great addition to any swimming pool.


  1. I bought some extra bags and a resuable filter that I thought was the right size. Come to find out I purchased the wrong items. When I emailed pool blaster and asked them very nicely if I could exchange I didn’t get a reply. I am still waiting. Thier web site say customer satisfation is 100 percent. I don’t agree. My catfish won’t come on after I charge the battery. It worked great for 1 year as well. The second year is very disappointing to me. I notice the unit getting very hot during charge. I know chances are I need a new battery but I am not wanting to buy the wrong item and get stuck with it since the company won’t accept exchanges. (at leaast I know they won’t accept them from me).
    I guess I will look for a different pool vacume from a different company. :(
    Sorrry, my opinion is… Pool Blaster web site customer service is horrible!

  2. We purchased the Catfish for our above ground pool last year. Put it in the garage in the box and remembered it this year! It is an awesome vacuum! However, I cannot get the attachment for the floor to stay on the darn thing!? It just slides on the front, but there is nothing to secure it there? Why is that!? When I go to put it in the pool and push it down to the pool floor, the attachment comes off and floats to the top?! Very aggravating! So, here I am trying to use the long, telescopic pole with the catfish attached, with no attachment on the end…..takes FOREVER this way! Any suggestions would be wonderful!

  3. The box advertises that the Catfish will also clean algae off the pool walls. Is this true? I would use it primarily to brush algae off the pool walls and be able to suck it into the vacuum before it drops back into the pool to blossom again. Sounds great, if it really works. Thank you.

  4. Works great…..but you need to take it apart and oil the motor…..end cap made out of cheap plastic(probably from China)cracks and water gets in…..a little vinyl adhesive and plastic tape cured this……for a 100 bucks you would think they would use some better material for the housing….algae claim is a little far fetched……use a mop

  5. Almost forgot… got to take the end cap off to turn it on and off a/c cheap on and off switch sticks…

  6. Where is the on/off switch on the Catfish? Still trying to figure this out, just bought it, haven’t used it yet. I see on the cap it says “turn on and align with arrow”. How do I turn it on??? thanks.

  7. I just bought the pool blaster catfish ultra and it didn’t come with the AC charger. Can anybody give me the specifications on that so I can get one at RadioShack? I just need the output voltage and whether the inside (pin) or outside is positive or negative. Any info will help. Thanks

  8. Hi, looking to purchase one of these for myself in new Zealand, do you sell overseas to us. If so will it work in NZ as we are on 240V power. Can you assist us on this.

  9. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks a lot!|
