I just bought a Pool Rover Jr. I was very excited when it arrived and couldn't wait to put it to work. My model is the "Residential Jet" which is the Rover Jr. with a Pre-Set timer in the transformer.
The instructions says that the built in timer should be good for most pools. The transformer also has a "Longer Run" button for larger pools.
My concern is that most of the time, the Rover does not go all of the way from one side to the other. Sometimes as short as a 6 foot run then switches directions. It cleans great, don't get me wrong. But the instructions and ads for it said it will clean a 24' pool in 30 minutes. Without the unit reaching the sides it will take much longer than 30 minutes to clean the pool.
Should I be concerned or is this normal?
Side notes: My pool bottom is completely flat with no wrinkles. Also the filter bag is clean.
