Does not come apart as shown,
Date:January 12, 2011

Pros: Don't yet know
Cons: Could not take off foot flange
"I just received my unit today and it's winter here (Pittsburgh, PA) so I have no experience with the actual operation of the unit. But... when I read the owners manual and put it together I thought I also should check to see how well the customer-replaceable parts came off and then back on. The foot pad is probably going to get the most wear. The manual says to remove the foot flange & pad. I was easily able to get the foot pad off of the flange but could not remove the flange. The problem is, with the tight clearances around the edges of the main unit (shell), I could not get the pad back onto the flange. I tried every which way to remove the foot flange but could not get it to budge (it snaps in and locks with a tab on each end). I finally called Zodiac Tech Support but they could not help me. They just said that 1) it should come apart as shown in the manual, and 2) I should be able to get the pad onto the flange without removing the flange. Before calling In The Swim for an RMA number to return the unit, I soaked the pad in very hot water and, while it was still a struggle, I was able to get the pad back on. I am hopeful that the operation of the unit is better than replacing the customer-replaceable parts."

Pros: Works Great
Cons: Gets stuck in corners sometimes
"I have owned three Barracuda G3's over the past six years. Each one ran for 24 hours a day, for two years before needing replacement. That's a total of 104 weeks or more of continuous running. A great product."

Great Time Saver!,
Date:August 22, 2007
By WallyWilderness
Pros: Light weight autovac that really cleans well. Easy to use.
Cons: Can miss some areas if the length of vac hose is not correct. Just took a couple to test runs to get it perfect.
"I'd looked a auto vacs for years. Finally got a G3 and am really glad I did. It's such a time saver. You do have to connect the lengths of hose instead of coiling up like a traditional vacuum hose. I only disconnect two lengths at a time so have half as many to connect. It actually makes storage easier."
