    Robotic Pool Cleaner and Pool Chemicals

    I have a robotic pool cleaner, the iRobot Verro 500.

    I'm in the middle of converting to chlorine from baquacil, and I need to maintain FC levels of 15 ppm.

    Is this chlorine level too high for my pool robot? Should I only operate it under lower FC levels?

    Anyone have any experience here? I don't want to expedite any type of oxidization process....

    Unless I just rinse it off really well after each cleaning.

    My goal is to get all the gunk right out of the pool, entirely.

    I don't think your problem would be the chlorine, but rather your cleaner getting baquagoo in it and then you having to thoroughly clean it, too. You would probably be better off waiting until your conversion is done before you use your robot.
