This will be the final robotic cleaner manufacturer that I review. Next Sunday’s review post will briefly compare these robotic cleaners and then I will select a few specific cleaners that I feel are the best. For now, read on about Water Tech’s Blue line of robotic pool cleaners.
Water Tech has been around for about 40 years. In 2001 they came out with a line of battery powered vacuums very similar to a traditional manual pool vacuum. Water Tech’s battery powered vacuums do not use a hose, however. Instead, they filter the water and trap the dirt inside of a canister. They offer several residential robotic pool cleaners, as well as commercial models.
The Blue Pearl is Water Tech’s entry level robotic cleaner. It has a few features worth talking about like its beach entry sensor that keeps it from driving out of your pool. It also has an obstacle sensor that prevents it from hanging up on ladders or stairs. The Blue Pearl will clean most pools in about 60 minutes. The cord length is 60 feet and it comes with a one year warranty on the motors.
The Blue Diamond is Water Tech’s flagship cleaner. This robotic cleaner does everything that the Blue Pearl can, but better. It comes with a caddy for storing it away from the pool easily. A big feature for many people is the four year warranty. The cord length is 60 feet and it will clean most pools in 60 minutes. You can buy the Blue Diamond on Amazon.com for under $1000.
A step up from the standard Blue Diamond is the Blue Diamond RC. If you could not guess, the Blue Diamond RC comes with a remote control so that you can direct the cleaner where the dirt is.
For anyone wanting the ultimate in durability, Water Tech offers the Blue Diamond Pro. This cleaner also comes with a remote, but it is designed to clean much larger pools. The cord length is 100 feet. Almost everything about it is more rugged than the standard Blue Diamond, but the warranty is only two years. I guess they expect it to see a lot of action.
