    Chief,
    all the cleaners on that list area electric powered robots.

    I notice it doesnt seem to include any of the suction side cleaners such as The Pool Cleaner, or any of the pressure side cleaners such as the Polaris 280

    Aside from the Hayward, does The Poolcleaner have a clone? Only reason Hayward has their own version is because they acquired Poolvergnuegen. I've spent a lot of time with my brother in laws pool and his Poolcleaner to say 'I really like it' but that is my only experience.
