I'm a brand new home/pool owner and trying to wrangle this new 27,000g friend in my back yard. We let things get out of whack (just moving in / not many pool supplies left for us / too busy to stay on top of it) and had some algae growth. We're getting the chemistry back to where it needs to be, but the cleaning part made me realize that I'd rather just have a robot do it....ideally, the investment will worth my time.
So - for a large-ish painted concrete pool - what are my options? After reading some stuff here....I'm also looking for a top-loader (preferably a basket) and not interested in a pressure/suction cleaner.
One concern: the pool needs to be repainted; will using a robot vice brush cleaning cause the current paint-job to degrade quicker? Thanks and I look forward to the discussion!
