Robot pool cleaner reviews – compare models
Doing the research on robot pool cleaner reviews isn’t easy. There’s many models and the information is all over the place. That’s why we’ve done it for you.We’ve trawled the internet to find independent reviews of various models, including our own, where we can. There are reviews to be found on productreview.com.au, and various distributor websites, which cover the major models.
The table below gives a summary of the key features of major brand models, compared to ours. We could not find any others which were fully internally battery driven, which is what we think make ours unique. We also think that our models compare very favourably on price. That’s probably because we don’t do expensive TV advertising, or give big bonuses to distributors, all of which has to be paid by someone (ie. the customer).
If you were to ask us what’s important for a robot pool cleaner, you might be surprised. We would say:
- Safety. If it plugs into the wall, you shouldn’t be swimming while it’s working. That’s why we specialise in battery driven models. We may be biased, but we can’t supervise how everyone is going to behave around our devices.
- Volume. It’s unbelievable how much junk gets into a pool, and the filter baskets fill up fast. The fineness of the filter mesh is secondary, since whatever is already in the basket will act to collect more fine particles.
- Weight. Add an extra 5kg to the dry weight of the device, and that’s what you’re pulling out of the water when it’s finished.
