Just bought a house with a pool - hasn't even been opened yet, but I figure I should grab a robot cleaner now before it is professionally opened next week.
Growing up we had a 50K gallon IG pool and the countless hours of vacuuming by hand still give me nightmares, so I definitely want automation.
I thought signing up here would give me a quick and easy solution of what I need, but having spent a few hours now reading other threads and links, I am even more clueless what to get than before I started!
Looking for some guidance....
-I assume Chlorine
-I estimate 25,000 gallons
-Kidney shape, believe max depth is 6 feet per the seller
That is about all I know until I have it opened.
I was planning on just getting this from Amazon (I do almost all shopping on Amazon anyway) - Dolphin Nautilus:
Amazon.com : Dolphin 99996323 Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner with Swivel Cable, 60-Feet : Swimming Pool Robotic Cleaners : Patio, Lawn Garden
Either that one for 582 or the "Plus" version for 695 seemed reasonable and carry a 4.5 rating on 100+ reviews...
But other forum talks of Dolphin of M4 or M5... which I cannot find (is that same as Z5?), and to complicate apparently these manufactures have multiple labels??? Ugh...
I see another thread touting the "Dolphin Premier" which sounds great according the website... but no price given and I have to enter all this personal info to find a dealer! Is that the same as M5? How much will this cost?
Advice is greatly appreciated!
