I'm looking for a new cleaner (posted another thread the other day). First of all.... I've continued to research since I made my other thread and I see how many of these "Which cleaner for me?" threads come up. Sorry... I'm a member on another forum for another hobby and I definitely realize how monotonous these newb threads can be. (I even tried to delete the other thread and apparently can't).
Next... while searching I've come across the new? Aquabot x4 4WD robot. Aquabot Pool Cleaner | Aquabots X4
Thing is, this machine seems to be very elusive in terms of availability and information. I like the looks of the machine because of the 4wd ability, top loading baskets (oversized at that), included caddy, programability, and 3 year warranty. The problem is that the only place that has rights to sell them is poolexpress. I can order it from them or via their ebay site. I called and talked to a salesperson from PE yesterday and quite frankly, he was annoying. He pretty much told me nothing after 3 requests for specific information on the x4. I gave up because I was tired of inquiring and having him not listen. After 2 phone calls to aquabot (one went unanswered, the other got me sent to someone's vmail)... I'm no closer to getting information than when I started.
The amazing thing is that there is no information available on this thing. It seems like a great machine at a decent price, but no one has it! Is this just a new machine that is coming out or is there something strange about it? It's not even listed on aquabot's website. The only site I can find is the one listed, and when you try to get a dealer they just direct you to poolexpress.
Any help here? Thanks for reading....
