Hopefully, my pool details are still in my signature.
We have struggled with the Wanda the Whale that came with our used above ground pool. I don't know if it is Wanda or if there is an issue with our pump or plumbing, but Wanda would not run last year. She would run for a few minutes and then stop. Seemed like when we closed the valve a little bit then she would work for a little bit. We really want to be able to enjoy the pool this year so I am ready to invest in a robot.
Do I understand correctly that the robots do NOT use the pump and filter system of the pool? They are self contained?
This is what I would really like to have, something self contained. So what options do I need to look for? Which robot would work best for our above ground pool with a deep end in it? Would love something that can handle the slope of the deep end and not get stuck in the deep end. I just don't know where to start or what to look for. I want the best quality that I can afford. Not quite sure on my budget, but probably $500-$700ish. Will go more if I need to. Just want a clean pool for the first time!!!
Please give me some recommendations. We haven't opened our pool yet, but am ready to tackle it in the very near future.
