The Riptide Pool Vacuum System made its debut in late 2016. Since then, it has gone through a number of transformations, with each one taking it to the next level a lot like Iron Man’s suit! The Riptide Circa 2021 is the finest version yet and it is packed with so many updated features it should have been called the Riptide SL 2.0.
Here are some of the great updated features:
High Torque Motor (uses rare earth magnets) High Torque Motor- Our new High Torque motor utilizes rare earth magnets making it the most powerful vacuum on the market
The cord -new protective external layer – it just feels so solid and durable
Cord Clip – secures the cord to the cart so no more worries of it falling off and dragging on the ground
Stainless steel endplates on the vacuum head
The cart is now e-coated before powder coating &t he Transport Rack Is e-coated now too – Electrostatic Coating- All of our powder coated parts are now electrostatic coated (ecoating) and then powder coated over. This makes the finish of our components much more durable.
Extremely high-quality integrated steering knuckle -Integrated Stainless Steel Steering Knuckle. This allows you to hook any pole directly up to the Riptide vacuum without the need for any adaptors while being effortless to maneuver in the water.
The SL model Riptides now include a Diagnostic/Tool Kit with a battery load tester, the load tester is essential for quickly determining battery condition.
The bags now have a different ring color to differentiate different microns.
The bags (100 Micron and below) are double layer now this feature is making the bags last much longer.
25 Micron Bag available (specialty dust bag) this bag can eliminate the need to system vac a pool with a dust problem.
Basically, the updated Riptide SL is the most durable vacuum system on the market today. The shell is backed by a 10-year warranty, the added steel plates to the vacuum head sides, the stainless steel knuckle, and the new beefed-up cord make it designed to last! The cart and transport rack has been given a stronger paint job thanks to the new Electrostatic coating!
Let me touch on the cord length choices. I was always a 40 ft cord user and didn’t consider a 60 ft cord much at all. Until of course I tried a Riptide with a 60 ft cord. The difference is pretty amazing. You can vacuum just about any residential pool from one end. Why is that so good? It just is very convenient. No need to park the cart in the center of a pool. And never run out of slack on top of that. For commercial pools, it is a must. And it is only $60 more at checkout for the longer cord. I would suggest the 60 ft of cord if you are on the fence about it over the 40 ft cord.
The new bag design is pretty cool. Each micron is color-coded now by a different color rim. So if you carry multiple micron bags you know that the purple is 25 microns and the orange is 100 microns. They are a little harder to get off without the tabs now but it is a trade-off between better bags and the older style. They also are all double-bagged making them extremely durable.
