    Re: Tiger shark robot

    Well, I'm starting my 11th season with my Tiger Shark, but its the only robot I've ever own and have no comparative experience with any other brand. I got mine before Hayward bought out AquaVac so things may have been changed, but here's my experience

    Does a good job cleaning ( i throw it in once a week during the season)
    Climbs walls to the water line.
    Did get caught up on my main drains, but I added drain ramps
    Bottom loading filter cartridge is not a big inconvenience for me, but may be a disadvantage for others
    Parts are readily available on line. (I have bought addition cartridges, filter panels, and a impeller over the years)
    Never had a major failure or repair . ( it did suck up a rock once and broke the impeller)
    A few years back I bought the caddie for it and found that for me it really did add any value.

    I was recently wondering how the TigerShark performed on steps?

    Re: Tiger shark robot

    I am on my second Tiger Shark QC robot. First one the motor died mysteriously at 3 1/2 years. (I was able to get full refund from my credit card warranty!). I am trying again because I really like how it works otherwise. Steps it occasionally hops onto, if the angle is randomly just right. BTW, I leave it in pool 24/7, which is not recommended.
