I am in the market for a new robot.
I know nothing about what else is out there so I am looking for opinions. My pool doesn't get a lot of debris bit I do deal with tons of dust.
My pool company sells two kinds Aquabot and Polaris. They didn't say much about the Polaris other than those cost upwards of $1,600. They have an AquaBot Prime that is exclusive to them so they said there is nothing out there on it. It runs $1,000 it does not have a remote they said and it sounds like it doesn't have the features I loved about my Z. I am pretty sure that is the highest end AquaBot they sell. The warranty is only 12 months bumper to bumper on the AquaBots they also told me. They are being certified to become a Aquabot repair center so that is a plus.
I have to have top loading cartridges, the remote was handy and I did use it. For whatever reason the Z didn't like my shallow end so that is where the remote came in handy. The caddy is a must and I liked the tangle free cord and no plastic guards on the sides of the track. That is non negotiable.
