Riptide Vacuum System Stainless Steel Steering Knuckle: Take You’re Riptide to the Next Level!

Riptide is always innovating, and their latest upgrade is their new Stainless Steel Steering Knuckle. Not only is it very compact and easy to use, but the build quality is exceptional, and this is a fine addition for Riptide Vacuum System. The clips are also Stainless Steel so no more broken V-Clips for us Riptide users with the new SS Steering Knuckle.

You can email or call the folks over at Riptide to order the SS Steering Knuckle for your older Riptide Vacuum Head. It sells for around $80 and you can reach Riptide at:

From the comments on the video, it appears that the new Riptide shipping now comes with the Stainless Steel Steering Knuckle already attached. The Riptide is a first-rate vacuum system and below are some more details about the Riptide Vacuum System.

The Riptide Vacuum System is an essential tool if you service pools that get destroyed by the winds, or if work in an area where the pools get a lot of large debris all season long. For the homeowner or service tech who doesn’t want or need the SL cart, you can now order the Riptide Vacuum Head with just a Battery Box, the Riptide XP.

Riptide has recently revamped the power switch and plugs on the SL Cart and the XP Battery Box. To say that the power switch and plug have been upgraded would be an understatement. The new design has been tested thousands of times making it the most reliable plugin the industry. I doubt if the switch or plug will wear out for years, it is that good. You can rest assured that whenever you plug the vacuum in it will turn on and it will never get pulled out when vacuuming a pool.

The Riptide SL is a great vacuum system and the manufacturer is always looking for ways to make it better. The Riptide now comes standard with the Steering Knuckle. This makes the Riptide Vacuum much more maneuverable in a pool and it will allow you to easily turn and pivot the vacuum head while pushing it along the bottom or on the step area of a pool. The Steering Knuckle takes the Riptide to the next level.

The SL Cart can hold up to a class 27 100 Ah battery which gives you about 6-8 hours of vacuuming time with the Riptide. I prefer a 55 Ah or a 35 Ah battery to make the cart a bit lighter. You will get less vacuuming time but the battery is easy to charge each day so it is not a major drawback to use a smaller battery.

The cart also features large rugged rubber wheels that are ideal for rough yards and step areas. This is a very lightweight cart and even with the battery in the bottom, the wheels make it effortless to pull the cart over any terrain. It is also very well balanced and even pulling it up hills it is very steady. The handle on top is adjustable, so you can turn it at an angle for different heights, making it even easier to pull.

I think a vacuum system is essential if you are servicing a full pool route. It will save you so much time in your pool route that it will pay for itself in just a year or two in time savings. With more time you can service more pools and a vacuum system like the Riptide will allow you to service pools that other companies would pass on. Those accounts with a lot of leaves each week on the bottom are no problem for the Riptide. I think purchasing equipment that will save you time and make your job easier is well worth the investment.
