    A Good Pool Cleaner That Costs Less to Run and Maintain

    Updated note after 20 months of using the robot:The robot had to be shipped to close-by city for repairing three times, and it cost about $20 for each shipment.The last repair required three items to be replaced: motor; cord from low impedance; and track from loosen part. Only the first item is covered by the two-year warranty. To replace the other two items would cost about $300, and I choose not to repair them.It is so difficult to find a reliable pool robot in the market. Most of them last for only about two years. I reduced its rating to three stars because of those repairs.Updated note after three months of using the robot: It could not move after three months. However, the customer service was helpful to help diagnose the problem and asked me to ship it to Dallas for repair. It cost me $18 to ship from Houston, and the robot was returned in one week under working condition. Thanks to its two-years warranty instead of 90-days.

    Keep it simple stupid! Works better than the expensive ones.

    I have owned two much more expensive Aquabot robots over the past 8 years.The more expensive models (double the price of this unit) are much more complex, and therefore they require maintenance every year. Things like changing belts, changing brushes, etc. After 3 to 4 seasons, something "big" goes wrong and the unit is no longer worth fixing as it would cost hundreds of dollars.So when my expensive aquabot died a week ago, I decided to "Keep it simple stupid" and buy this low cost model. I have to say, even though it has only been running in my pool for a few days, this unit is actually far superior to the more expensive models.Why do I say this? Doesn't this fly in the face of logic?

    Works better than I expected

    I read lots of reviews about all different kinds of pool cleaners, and came to conclusion that regardless of the price there was not one that had all positive review, they all had the same complaints you could say. they don't go up the wall, they don't pick up large debris, and wires tangle, and by far all break down after a couple of years and need expensive parts. So decided to buy a less expensive one and give it a try.. I was more than surprised when it climbed the wall, and picked up big leaves, and some sticks I never thought it would, and tons of small sand and slit...I am extremely happy with how it works.. we have a large mango tree right over the pool that constantly drops leaves and branch ends, and just finished construction and therefore had a lot of dust and sand in there that needed to be taken out..This gets a thumbs up, for sure.UpdateSo I purchased on 5/9/13 and received with in a week.. as said before the product works excellent.. this will not... 5/5 Hamid Nassery (MIAMI BEACH, FL, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    wish it had worked...

    received my unit today and threw it in the pool. worked great for a couple of hours then stopped. the motor shuts off and wont stay on for more than 5-10 seconds. both lights flash on the power supply, so I followed the manuals trouble-shooting guide for that issue and double checked everything they recommended. re-tried it about 10 times and it just wont run, so I guess I got a lemon, so we'll see how the return/customer service is with Aqua Products :(update #1 - called Aqua this morning and they said the power supply was apparently defective and were sending me a new one out within the next couple of days. so far, so good. I've modified my star rating based on this, so will report back when the new power supply arrives.update #2 - received the new power supply today. it does not work....period. wont turn on.

    Really does the job

    If you read my review of the Aqua Turbo, you will see that it started out great and ended up being really poor. The cost of repair is obscene. So, here we start out a new review, after the Aqua Turbo burned out it's second motor, a $700+ repair with shipping costs.The Triton runs circles around the Aqua Turbo, when it comes to cleaning. With the Aqua Turbo, I got about 2/3 cleaning of our kidney shaped pool. The Triton gets all but one two foot corner. That I clean using the remote control with one sweep. And, it only runs for a couple of hours to accomplish a complete cleaning. i ran the Aqua Turbo for eight hours to accomplish the 2/3 cleaning.The only downside that I have found is that the filters that come with the unit have a very small surface area. They function well, but are completely clogged after just one run. They have to be cleaned every day, and this is before there is any pollen being dropped into the pool. I have ordered the bag... 5/5 Westcliffe, CO here (Westcliffe, CO) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Love it!

    0 5/5 Gregory Ables - See all my reviews This review is from: Dolphin 99996356 Dolphin Triton Robotic Pool Cleaner with Caddy Swivel Cable, 60-Feet (Lawn & Patio) The cleaner just came in today and I used it for the first time. Initial assessment is..."this thing is awesome". My pool was extremely dirty from three weeks of on and off bad weather and no cleaning. This little jewel had it clean in about 2.5 hours and did not get hung up at all, unlike my Polaris 360. I see a summer of fun in my future instead of a summer of working on the pool. So far, I highly recommend it. I did get the remote and I recommend it as well. I was able to manually direct the cleaner to the shallow end of the pool and just reach in and grab the handle to get the cleaner out of the pool. No pulling on cords. If my review changes I will post a follow-up. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 31, 2014

    Pool Rover Above Ground Pool Vac

    The Pool Rover is the third and definitely the last automatic vacuum I will ever own. I previously owned the Aqua Critter by Hayward and the Great White by StaRite. The other 2 never completely cleaned my pool and I always ended up having to manually vacuum all the spots they missed. The other draw back to these 2 vacs is that they have to be hooked up to your skimmer to work and because of that the skimmer obviously is out of use during the entire vacuuming time. They also end up clogging your filter with dirt and leaves which forces you to have clean your filter very frequently.The Pool Rover works independently of your filter and skimmer. It comes with a small electrical box that you plug in and gets its power from that. It has a cloth filter bag that collects all the dirt and debris. The bag is reuseable, I have had mine for 3 years now and it is still like new. All you have to do is remove the bag and rinse it out with your garden hose. A few times a year I... 5/5 Debbie (Fairfield, CT) - See all my reviews = Durability:, September 15, 2009

    very good cleaner and a time saver

    I will no repeat the specifications that you can read above, except to say that this particular model is confusing as to whether it can be used in ground pool as well as an above ground pool. I have an in ground pool and it worked fine. It was able to climb up the wall quite a bit.I have a mango shape in ground pool, about 26 feet long, with a deep and a shallow end. I put the rover in the pool after I made sure the air was out (first dip in the pool upside down). It sank fine to the bottom, and yet felt light when you tugged on the power cord (make sure not to pull it out of the water by using the power cord). I turned on the external power supply/timer and was surprised to see it move fast on the pool's floor.The timer sets how long it travels in one direction before reversing again. You will have to fine tune this so that the rover cleans the whole pool. Make it too short, and you will find that the rover stays cleaning one area only (prefers to stay in the... 5/5 A.
