    Pool Rover

    How well does the Pool Rover do with leaves at the bottom of the pool? If I decide to buy the Rover online, where do I get service while in the warranty period? Is it better to spend the extra money and buy it locally, in case of problems? Is there any difference, other than cord length, between the Pool Rover and Pool Rover Jr.?

    Thanks

    I use a Pool Rover that I purchased from costco. It is a simple design but does an excellent job on cleaning the pool. Mine came with two bags. One is used for larger debris such as leaves and the other bag filters vacuums very fine particles. Very happy with my unit.

    I have a Pool Rover also and it does a excellent job of cleaning leaves out of the pool.

    As far as i can tell the only difference is that the Rover is built a little heavier than the junior. The main difference I found is around the axles the Rover has them mostly enclosed while the Junior has them exposed.

    On another note, check this out: http://www.shopthegreatescape.com/ecom/ ... c3965aa117

    It's like a cross between http://www.aquajet.us/2005_pages/aquajet_2005.htm and http://www.aquajet.us/2005_pages/TjetAG_2005.html

    but it's a lot less expensive. Made by same company.

    I would have bought this if I hadn't already gotten the Junior. It's made by aquabot.

    I think I will just get the Rover, since it's the only decent robot that I can get locally. With an online purchase, I would probably end up spending the savings on shipping costs if something were to go wrong.
