Great product at a significant savingsAug 14, 2011
By Jorge Munoz-Bustamante
My original Zodiac skirt lasted about three years. A replacement was going to cost around $85 at my local pool shop so it took a chance on this one. It is slightly different from the zodiac product but it works extremely well. The seller did a great job with shipping and I would definitely purchase from him again.I ended up getting what I think is a superior product with the savings of about $30.
in another review someone mentioned that the G3 needs to have the pressure well regulated. This is definitely true, as the performance will deteriorate significantly if the pressure is not on the middle of the gauge. Also, use as little amount of hose as you can. Excessive amount of hose will result in a lot of tangling.

Excellent ProductJul 10, 2012
When I needed to buy a replacement "finned disk" for my Baracuda pool cleaner I was shocked at the almost $100 price tag to buy a new one at the local pool supply company. I thought it more economical to buy a whole new pool cleaner for $250 or so than to pay $100 for this piece. Luckily I found this replacement by Moon Light Pool supply at about one-third of the price of Zodiac's part. Moon Light's finned disk fits perfectly onto the Baracuda and it works just as good as the original, maybe better. My pool cleaner now travels around the pool and climbs the walls just as it did before. Th color of this replacement part is somewhat different than the original (it's more of a greyish blue) but who cares considering I saved about $60. I've had it for about two months now and highly recommend this product. I should mention also that shipping was extremely fast. The few days I took debating whether or not to buy this was longer than it took for the product to arrive once I ordered it.

Installed a few weeks ago...Mar 07, 2012
By Michelle Merkel
This is a good product. My old barracuda skirt died. I knew it was dying, started looking--was shocked how much the parts for it cost--can buy a whole new unit for just a little more than a couple of wear item replacements... Unfortunately the skirt died--folded over and shred itself. It was a bad week to spend money, so I thought what the heck--I will try this part--the reviews sounded OK, and if it didn't work out--it wasn't THAT much out of pocket, and would probably get me through until I could buy a new until this spring... which we thought would be a good idea anyway, since ours was no longer climbing walls, etc.
So I ordered it. It looks considerably different than the original part, but reflecting, this is in good ways. For one thing, the ribbing on the top will probably make it so this skirt can't died like the last one did, by folding under. It is reinforced. AND?! Unit is performing like new, back to climbing the walls and getting ALL the sediment off the bottom of the pool. It does a great job creating suction I guess.
Don't be afraid--order it :)

Excellent Product and VendorJul 22, 2012
I was a little wary at first but being nearly $60.00 less than the local OEM replacement I thought I'd give it a try. The material is comparable in both thickness and texture to the original and the design is far superior. I have an older pool and this skirt cleans deep dirt much better and doesn't get stuck in corners or fold over on itself as the original did even when new. You will be impressed and you will save a lot of money.
A quick word about the vendor...I had an issue with another product, I wasn't even sure it had a warranty left or not but I got in touch with Mr. Robert Stuart of Moonlight Pool Supply, sent a few pictures of what was happening and just like that he Priority mailed me a replacement and I was back in operation in two days. To say I was pleased is putting it lightly, impressed is more like it, that's how you do business people. No hassles, no RMA run around just first class customer service. Many companies large and small could take a lesson from Mr. Stuart. Take care of the customer and take care of the customer now. He has my business for sure now and I highly recommend him to anyone...Thanks again Robert.

Somewhat DisappointedMay 07, 2012
Although this is a well-made, solid piece, it is getting hung up in corners and around steps. I have already taken out 2 sections of hose, to keep it more centered in the pool. I will have to manually keep the extreme end of the pool clean. It is a good price compared to the original, but has this little hang-up problem that I am still trying to solve. I am hoping that as it softens up a bit, it will take the corners better.
