    Am I guilty of robot abuse?

    IMG_0229.jpg

    I do feel bad but a recent injury to my right arm is preventing me from using the leaf rake for any length of time.

    The little guy is taking it in stride, hasn’t asked to unionize yet! Both he & I are glad the pool will be covered in about a week

    Way to go little Robot, just keep on keeping on.

    As for EVChargeGuy, you just continue to rest that injured arm, and let little "Rob" there do what he was designed to do until the cover does get put into place.

    All those fallen leaves though are a sure fire sign that Fall is upon us UGGG.

    Have a wonderful day EVchargeGuy, and I hope your arm feels better soon.

    What kind of robot is it? Is it one of those remote controlled ones? I was looking for the solar breeze but it looks like it won't be available again until next year.

    I have a new pool and I'm going to have a huge problem with leaves falling in the pool.

    AquaBot Ripids 4WD. No remote- drop it in and it does its own thing.
    Mid range cost @ under $700

    We still have a lot of sand blowing into the pool from the new paver install, picks up just about anything from the sand, acorns leaves, whatever.
