Another Robotics Choice – Aquabot
If you read last week’s blog, you will be familiar with the large variety of robotic cleaners offered by Dolphin. Aquabot brings a similar variety of robotic cleaners to the table. They offer a wide range of cleaners for both above ground and in-ground pools. The prices range from near $340.00 up to $2000.00. Aquabot has been producing robotic cleaners since 1982 and has a solid reputation as an industry leader. Like the Dolphin and Polaris robotic cleaners, the Aquabot not only cleans up visible debris lying on the floor, it also filters the water as it moves through the cleaner, reducing the burden on your main filtration system. I believe that Aquabot is slightly more modest when it comes to the features of their cleaners than their competitors, but it appears that they are very much aware of the technological age in which we live. Although they do not advertise this with flashy graphics, they do offer several cleaners with remote controls, allowing you to spot clean your pool. The one thing that Dolphin offers that I do not see with Aquabot is a cordless design. This should not be a deal breaker, but it is worth noting, especially if you have a very large pool to maintain.
Aquabot’s robotic cleaner lineup is far too vast for me to list it here and their website is actually set up incredibly well, making it pointless for me to try directing you toward which cleaner to buy. Just go to their residential bots page and select your pool type, surface type, and size. This will narrow down your search to just a few cleaners. You can even filter your selections based on price or warranty.
