I shopped around for this type of item & decided that the short battery run-time issue mentioned in the reviews was preferable as a problem compared to the feedback issues for competing products. Now I think I have the secret to restoring 40-min (or close to it) run time. 40 min is what you get "out-of-the-box" on its first charge when you use the Catfish right away after charging. Runtimes will be much less on successive uses depending on how you charge it & if you let it sit before use. So: I use the Catfish until it runs down to nothing. Then I let it sit to completely drain the battery ALL DAY and ALL EVENING. Plug it in to charge at midnite, unplug it at 7 a.m. (mfgr says do not charge more than 8 hrs), and then use it promptly. The key is that altho the motor runs down as the battery power weakens when you're using the Catfish, the battery actually "wants to" be more completely drained & then take a full charge. So--this takes a little planning, but it works!

The thing konked out after 10 days when I got it to run 30 min+ per session. I'm still waiting for my refund. Manufacture has dragged its feet at each stage: initial shipment, obtaining return label, processing refund--and Brookstone apparently lets them do it.

                Bought this mid summer so haven't had it long but it's soooo much better that wrestling with the hose of the filter vac. I use it mainly for light cleaning, it doesn't quite handle the heavy cleaning. But thats OK. I love it!

                  This product works great for the shallow end. I love that I don't have to break out the big hose and hook it up and deal with the filter. I can get the small trash out of the pool with ease. We have an old pool and the deep end is 10ft deep so it's a little more difficult to maneuver but it can be done.

                    After a storm, it is great for cleaning up the debris that goes to the bottom of the pool. Also, has helped with the algae that accumulated after being on vacation due to the rainy summer. You do have to hold it down so that it doesn't float off the bottom but it worked very well.
